The second day we were there (Friday), we were all pretty lazy! That morning we fixed a huge breakfast together as a group and then just relaxed around the fire while the kids played. It quickly turned overcast and started to rain right around lunchtime, which meant that we took naps. Everyone. Adults included. This was truly a Godsend because Liam was exhausted and quite the pill. Our kids slept about two hours and when they woke up, they were new creatures! We spent the remainder of the day just hanging around and for dinner we grilled steaks and made potato packets on the fire.
On Saturday, we spent the afternoon at Citico Creek. It is a short drive away from the campsite and was a wonderful place to play in the water and on the rocks. The kids loved it! There were a few rapids so the kids took turns floating down on rafts (with the help of the Daddies).

Of course, what is a day at the creek without a water gun fight!?
For dinner that last night we had jambalaya. We put the kids down early that night and the adults sat around the campfire talking and hanging out for a few hours. That was really nice! On Sunday morning, we packed up (which took forever), and headed to Bald River Falls to see a beautiful 100 ft waterfall. We didn't stay long because it was getting late and I had a baby girl to get back to! I was missing my Stella Baby! We enjoyed the beautiful drive back to reality and talked about how much we loved camping. I hope this is the start of many great family camping trips together. I really, truly enjoyed it and can't wait to do it again!!!
