Family Time – The day before school.
Bent Creek in Asheville, North Carolina

The Adventures of Supermom

Growing up I can remember spending a lot of summer Saturdays at Bent Creek playing in the sand and lake water.  I can still remember the squishy-ness of the bottom of the lake under my feet.  I remember walking from the car barefoot, on teeny tiny rocks, then down the steps {which seemed like a hundred at my young age} which were teeny tiny rocks too.

I also remember the bath-house. 

I think you entered on the left side of the building and the stalls were on the left all lined up. 

I hated having to walk to the bath-house on those awful rocks to just pee.  Ouch ouch ouch ouch and OUCH! 

Back then the beach area was different than it is now.  It was layered with rock walls and there was a rock wall you slid down on to get into the water.  Now the thought of getting in the water just grosses me out.  Or I thought it would.

The day before school started I was full of energy and HAD to get out of the house and do something fun with the babies.  All summer I had been promising them we'd go places that I enjoyed as a little girl.  I was excited! 

{Then we all know I had some sort of back thing going on and spent most of my summer in bed binge watching Netflix.}

While the family was at church and brunch I packed up the beach towels, threw some bathing suits and sunscreen in the bag and grabbed my BIG straw hat.  I was ready!  Even had my book all packed and of course my camera.

It was a fantastic day!  It was really awesome and I am so glad we were able to enjoy it. 

Just sitting there doing nothing.  {And taking pictures.}
