Our Trip to Grandfather Mountain

Halloween at Grandfather Mountain was a BLAST! After setting up camp on Friday afternoon, we just hung out at the campsite and had dinner. The kids loved all the freedom they had to run around and play in the river. FYI..Don't ever tell the kids not to get IN the water. Trust me, it DOESN'T work!!!
At dusk, we headed to the local Trunk or Treat downtown. It was perfect for the kids and much easier on us.
Saturday, we ventured out to hike Grandfather Mountain and walk across the Swinging Bridge. Yes, I did it. I mustered the courage to overcome my newly aquired FEAR OF HEIGHTS. I was actually standing there watching the rest of the gang go and decided, in my competitive nature, that I WAS NOT going out like a wimp. Needless to say, we got some awesome pictures and I did just fine.
All in all, we had a great time and are now finished with our camping trips for the year.
To see God's creation like that is absolutely AMAZING!
