McBrayer Mountain Trip 2012

 We officially kicked off fall last weekend with our annual McBrayer Mountain Trip. We moved to a new location this year because the Tabor House in Nantahala Village became a spa and the smaller cabins became infested with mice!!  It was really nice to have all of the Charleen/Mike kids in one big house. Made naps and bedtime much easier!
We added a few new traditions this year as well. We roasted weenies on the fire pit for lunch one day and the big kids went trout fishing one afternoon.  And the adults spent nights outside by the fire pit, enjoying conversation and the sound of a babbling creek!

 our new "big house" - it has a little shallow creek out back; pet turkey and chickens out front; a huge playroom upstairs; a fire pit on one side...

 Hannah and Landon were able to join us this year. We hadn't seen them in almost a year - way too long - so we loved getting to spend some time with them.
