Our trip to Blue Ridge, GA

We had so much fun on our fishing trip up to Blue Ridge. We stayed for four nights in a cute cabin right on the Toccoa River. It was my kind of camping! Michael loved taking the kids fishing. He and Nathaniel both caught a trout, and Emily caught what Michael called a sucker. The kids all said that the hot tub at the cabin was their favorite part of the trip. :-) Nathaniel also loved catching his fish and playing pool.

Jonathan loved sitting by the river and watching the kids fish. He sat happily on his little rock the whole time.

Andrew loved fishing and helping Daddy take care of the poles and bait.

Nathaniel was quite the fisherman. He and Michael walked down the river our first day there; that is where Michael caught his trout.

Emily, looking pretty as always. She has her new orthodontic appliance in, called a twin block. The goal is to bring her jaw out where it is supposed to be. Anyway, she enjoyed fishing just as much as the boys.

Daniel served as the entertainment.

Andrew fell into the river--right after I turned off the video camera. I think we could have made it onto America's Funniest Videos if I had been recording it. He wasn't hurt, and he was pretty excited about getting all wet.

Nathaniel with his trout. This was on our third day.

The kids really enjoyed this swing on the porch at the cabin. Another fun thing they enjoyed was tying a rope to a basket and lowering things down from the loft in the cabin. They overheard me tell Michael that they had created their own dumbwaiter, and so from then on they called it the dumb-evator.


I was so glad we got to go on this trip! Michael has been wanting to take the kids on a fishing trip forever. It was wonderful!!!
