We went to Bryson City again and camped at The Lost Mind Camp grounds.  It is an old fashioned camp ground that we have fallen in love with.  A beautiful creek runs in the back of the camp sites and lulles us to sleep at night.  The boys made a repelling station and they played all day in the creek, skipping rocks and building dams.
Maggie loves to camp and it is a diverse sensory playground for her. She picks up rocks, plays in the dirt and laughs at the trees.  All of the things she has missed in her early beginnings.  She just comes alive !
We visited the Smokey Mountains National State Park Pioneer village.  This is our attempt at a family picture.

Awesome photos! My family used to go to the Pioneer Village every summer when we would visit the Smokey Mountains (when I was a kid). We love it up there. I wish we could go camping here. We had a heat index of 104 today. Summer has begun in FL.

The Smokey Mountains are my all time favorite place! I can't wait to visit the beautiful state of NC again. It is a dream of mine to move there.

Looks like you had a lot of fun camping. We went two years ago and it wore me out! LOL I can't imagine what it would be like with five! I'll let you know how it goes in a couple months. ;)

How fun!!!
We can't wait to start our camping season here. It's raining and Gary's working a lot from being in China last month then we can go.
Thanks for the pictures at least someone is out there camping.
