Family Reunion 2014 Days 1 & 2

We're back!  We took a 5-day break for a family reunion and a side trip to Six Flags Over Georgia.

Day 1: Driving to North Carolina involved long, boring stretches of roads and lots of selfie-taking between ourselves and my mother-in-law, who was in a different vehicle going to the reunion from a different state.

We arrived at our beautiful location in  Black Mountain, checked in and then went to our reunion meeting room to say hi to everyone.

Day 2: We woke up early for our 8:00 a.m. breakfast time. They did not mess around.  If you did not get your food by 8:45 a.m., you were plain out of luck. No food for you.

We then set out for a guided Nature Hike that KICKED our butts.  Easy hike, my fanny!

After the hike, we headed back to hang out and have lunch around 12:30 p.m.

Arts and Crafts were next.

While our gal did arts and crafts with our family, David and I took a scenic drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway.

And stopped at a Visitor's Center to watch a movie, read some information and buy a patch for our blanket.

We had dinner at 6 p.m. then headed to the meeting room to play games while we waited for night fall and our bonfire, complete with fixings for Smores.

Off to bed for Day 3.  To be continued.
