A Week-end Away

We went to the mountains on Friday night with several couples from our church. It was an easy 2 hour drive although both hubby and I wanted some coffee, Starbucks to be exact, really really bad! Sadly, we didn't find any. 

The cabin we stayed in was lovely! (It wasn't like the picture on the brochure, not an A frame.) It had 5 bedrooms and 3 baths and a basement game room. Very adequate for our group.

The Cabin......

The back porch

The front of the house with the wonderful deck!

I sat on this chair this afternoon taking in the view and breathing the fresh mountain air.

 Inside the cabin....

The kitchen, dining room and loft above

 We played games. Dominoes was a fave!

Sherry, Shirley and Sue
I had some HORRIBLE scores....
I'll blame it on my cold =)

Melissa has some fun with Shirley!
(It was hard to get good pictures during daylight hours due to the sun coming in the windows)

Another dominoes game in the evening.

Jeremy snuck up behind Melissa and yelled, BOO!
Oh, the screams (I think Sue was the loudest) were so worth it!

 We prepared food and ate it, of course!

Sherry, Sue, Shirley and Adam take potatoes from one dish to another.

Sherry helps her boys, Ian and Adam, to some dinner.

Jeremy is next and Melissa is right behind him.

 We relaxed.....

Merle and Ian play a game

Jeremy watches Merle and Ian play a Scrabble game.
Ellen is watching too.

 The wonderful views......

Clouds this morning

 One more picture.....

We wrote our names on our cups...and reused them.
I kinda liked this pic of them all lined up =)

Now we are home again. It was wonderful to be away but there is no place like home!

Oh, it looks like a beautiful cabin with extraordinary views. I am so glad you had this opportunity - the photos look like a lot of fun. The mountains are a great place to relax.

That looks awesome!! And so much fun! I really do miss the times we used to have at Camp Andrews in the fall - the warmth of the fireplace, the smell of autumn outside.

What a wonderful time with friends in a lovely cabin with beautiful views! I love to sit on a deck in the mountains... the air is just different there! Add in some warm sunshine and I could take a long nap! I am with you on getting back home. We enjoyed our Savannah trip but there is truly no place like home! I am running behind on reading blogs and trying to catch up to see what you all have been up to! Have a blessed and restful evening! HUGS!
