did ya miss me?

I know i've been missing for a while now, but i had good reason....we went on a family vacation!!!  we decided to go to morrow mountain, north carolina.  it was GORGEOUS!  i took plenty of pictures (you knew that right?) and kept a bit of a journal chronicling our journey to and from...this is the first entry from that journal. :)

day 1
after 14 hours and one shopping trip of massive proportions, we arrived to find a locked gate and a closed park.  we went back to town to find cell service and a phone book...and called the park, which had a voice message directing us to call the sheriff.  The sheriff got in touch with the ONLY full time park ranger, who met us at the gate to let us in.  We had no idea there was a closing time...found out MUCH later in the week that we should have gotten an email with directions, a packing suggestion list, and a list of what is in the cabin...but we never got it.  We finally got to the cabin and with the girls' help, got everything out of the van...got the girl beds ready and put them to bed, then we put away groceries and such.  MM and i went to bed at midnight...after driving all that way!  since we left around 6 am, we were exhausted!

here are the pics of the cabin, which was lovely by the way...
