We went camping this weekend! We had an incredible amount of fun. Highlights: 

  • After breakfast, we walked/skipped/ran/galloped to the nearby lake where ducks were sighted, sand was tromped in, and rocks were skipped across the water. 
  • Then we packed up camp and headed to the apple orchard for some hardcore apple picking (or rather casual apple picking and lots of playing with the walkie talkies). We consumed peach and grape slushes as well as fried fruit pies - yum!
  • We saw Amicalola Falls for the first time, a nearby waterfall! We scaled the steep approach and the 175 steps listed as strenuous (the kids did it themselves, so it can't have been THAT strenuous!) to see the beautiful sight. 
  • We stopped by Bub-Ba-Q's for some fantastic bbq! Matt found this place last year and we went there after apple picking with my parents in 2011. Bubba has won all kinds of national bbq competitions and been on The Food Network shows. And we drooled for weeks in anticipation.
  • Of everything we did, the only pictures I took on my phone were at Bub-Ba-Q's! (Other pics on the big camera...I'll see when we can upload those.) And the phone camera must have been smudged. Look past the glare and see if you can find the kids riding on a pig or our family and friends sampling the best bbq in Georgia!

Here Naomi is pointing out her loose tooth.
It is, naturally, difficult to eat fresh apples off the tree
or mouth-watering bbq when you have a loose tooth...
