A Weekend in the Mountains

My mom's best friend has a cabin in the North Georgia Mountains and we were able to spend a couple of nights there this weekend with my parents.  We left home on Saturday morning and made it up there early afternoon.  The boys immediately started playing outside!  The weather was perfect and they had such a great time and loved being right on the river!

Nobody caught any fish (or saw any for that matter), but no one cared either!  They just love the experience of fishing and being on the river!

Paxton thought he was as big as the big boys and wanted to do everything that they did!  He also loved his boots!  

On Saturday night, my mom made spaghetti for the boys and they let us head out for a date night!  The mountain house was actually in Mineral Bluff, but Blue Ridge is just a few miles down the road, so we went to downtown Blue Ridge for dinner.  It was so nice to spend a few hours away in a cute little town with each other!

Sunday morning came early for three little boys!  But, I was able to take a few pictures as the sun rose higher.  Such a beautiful morning!

We headed to Mercier Apple Orchards to pick apples with the boys.  We are so glad we got there when we did because it was packed, but it got more and more packed by the time we left!  The boys had a great time at the apple orchard...picking and eating the apples!

Paxton was a little bit nervous at first.  It was crowded and he just wasn't sure what to think, but by the time we got to the orchard to pick the apples, he was fine and was having a great time.

Apple picking quickly turned into apple eating...

The orchard...

After apple picking, eating ice cream, buying apple pies, donuts, and more, we headed back to the cabin.  The boys spent the afternoon fishing, playing, relaxing, running, playing ball, kayaking, and more.  My mom and I spent a few hours in Blue Ridge shopping while Paxton napped, but we came back in time for kayaking and more playing outside!

Paxton has started doing this silly laugh where he puts his hands dramatically in front of his face in almost a fake laugh kind of way, but it is a genuine laugh!  It is so funny, so I was glad to capture it in a photo!

My boys!

After dinner Sunday night, we made smores in the fire pit!!

This morning called for a little bit more fishing before we loaded up and headed home!

We stopped in Atlanta at The Varsity for lunch!

Our mountain weekend away was so much fun!  I hope we can do it again.  The boys just love being on the water, fishing, kayaking, and playing outside.  Thank you, Mrs. Catherine and Mr. David, for letting us spend the weekend at your beautiful, peaceful, fun cabin!  We absolutely loved it!  Thank you, Sunshine and Granddaddy, for spending the weekend with us and making it so much fun for all of us!
