I love a good road trip. It may sound crazy but piling into the car with my husband and our five kids really is fun for me. There is just something incredibly cozy and comforting about having all the people I love most all squashed together in a little space on our way to someplace new and exciting.
Last week, all seven of us climbed into the minivan and set off for the breath-taking Blue Ridge Mountains of north Georgia. It was a nine hour drive that left us surrounded by the stunning glory of God’s beautiful creation. We stayed in a remote mountain cabin that we had booked online but turned out to be absolutely perfect for us. There was not another soul in sight and we had four bedrooms, three bathrooms and a hot tub all to ourselves for the week. In addition to the awesome hot tub, there was an indoor fireplace and an outside fire pit and the woods and creek all around to give us the perfect mountain vacation. What we didn't have was any access to the internet- but somehow, we didn't miss that at all!
We stayed six nights and had lots of adventures but honestly, I am still recovering from all the excitement and the thought of recording all our memories here sort of exhausts me. I want to share our vacation experiences and I want to remember all the fun we had so I will get to it all in time, but for now……..here are a few pictures…. and a promise--- I will explain more on the “tubes” and the “train” as soon as I find the energy and motivation to document it all….

We took about 270 more pictures than this but I won't bore you with ALL of them.
