Nantahala National Forest

Posted by KK on Friday, 10 July, 2009

The thought of being outdoors, the simplicity of having only what you need (plus a whole lotta stuff our husbands claimed we didn’t need), in the presence of best friends, lots of happy children, the smell of a campfire, a cup of hot coffee in hand and leaving no trace that you were even there when you leave is pure heaven to me. If it were my choice, I would live like this.

We recently went on a weekend trip to the Standing Indian campground in Franklin, NC, in the Nantahala National Forest with our best friends and their beautiful trio of babes. We had a great time despite the hard work of camping with 6 children (our 3 and their 3) and all that entails and my getting very sick halfway through the weekend. Jason was able to do what he loves which is dig around in the earth looking for native creatures. I just got to enjoy the company of my girl and watch our little ones love on each other. :)

 We have had a busy summer….not a lot of time for blogging but we spent some time in the garden today and harvested our monster tomato that we have been watching for a couple weeks now as well as some beautiful green bell peppers. It looks like I am going to be making salsa for our camping trip this weekend!
