A Weekend Mountain Trip

We took a brief trip with my sister and family to their cabin
in Cleveland, Georgia. 

It was the shortest and most fun trip
we have taken in awhile.

The girls (me, my niece, and my sister)
took a little walk around Mountain Lake Resorts.

We stayed in Timber Creek cabins, 
which was far from a resort, 
but we felt like were on a youth retreat or at summer camp.

I found another barn to photograph.
While I was taking a picture, a donkey arrived on the scene.

We went down by the creek and I almost fell in trying to get
a picture of us sitting on a rock.

We laughed until we cried.

My niece says I'm as crazy as her mama.
That's a compliment.

We rode paddle boats and I almost
turned the boat over and once again almost fell in.

Even my niece, got in on that one.

We played putt-putt, ate ice cream, fished
and played BINGO.

I wish my pictures would download,
but since they don't,
you'll just have to imagine the fun we had.

The babies and children didn't go.
I thought about them and considered how
much they would enjoy the boats and fishing,
but it was good not to worry about their safety
and good not to have to care for anyone else.

It was a fun time enjoyed by everyone.


  1. Bonnie, We love our little ones to pieces ...but there's times we need to just be with siblings. Big girl fun time. Great pictures. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

  2. It just does not get any better than this!!! Good for you in carving out time for things like this!
    You can tell at first glance that y'all had a ball!!

  3. Sometimes, the big kids just need to get away by themselves! What a lot of fun you had!

  4. I'm so glad you got this time to rest, rejuvenate and laugh! It sounds wonderful!

  5. We just need these times, don't we? Some fun kid times and some fun adult times or fun kid times with adults. Glad that you had the opportunity.

  6. I have stayed there:). Love that area. Sounds like loads of fun! Great barn pic! Enjoy your evening, hugs.

  7. I am so glad that you were able to get away and just enjoy yourself for a bit! You deserve it and it looks like you had a lot of fun. xo Diana

  8. What a cool getaway, thanks for sharing, Bonnie. Thanks for the smiles.

  9. It does sound fun. I get you thinking about your babies and the kids while you were away. But, it does us good to be without a care sometimes :)
    Sending my love your way, my friend!

  10. Such a sweet cabin, I love it!!!! Blessings Francine.
