We rented a small cottage/cabin close to Lake James (30 miles from Asheville). Hubby wanted a bigger lake, but this ended up being a great beginning lake to introduce the kids to canoeing and fishing with daddy for hours and hours.
They left bright and early, while I slept in and spent some quality time with my mom. Win-win situation :)
Sadly, we found many places closed to the public due to the rain. But the weather was beautiful! Some clouds, nice sunny days, and rain by the time we were ready to relax.
I read a fabulous book (and finished it!), played some scrabble (I lost) and we saw a bear!!! I mean, a cute wooded bear at a restaurant, but nevertheless, we saw a bear :)
I have hundreds of pictures to download from my 'good' camera, but I could not wait to share with you. Now...it is time to reply to all the emails, catch up with bloglovin' and work on something for school. I just can't stay away!
