Camping at Red Top Mountain

We brought in the month of April with a family camping trip to Red Top Mountain in Cartersville, GA!

Tim, Amy, Lailey, Sarah, and Davey

We settled into our campsite overlooking the lake after Tim walked around and scoped out all the other sites to make sure we had the best one...and we did. The picture doesn't really do the view justice, but we were up on a hill over-looking the lake. It was beautiful.

We set up Sarah's monstrosity of a tent, built a fire, and ate a very yummy dinner, courtesy of my very gracious sister, of Protestant chili & Catholic chili.

Catholic Chili = meatless, for a Friday during Lent of course! :)

We all hunkered down in the giant tent to sleep. Lailey had a blast playing in the tent, but when it came to sleeping in the tent, she wasn't so sure. It took some convincing, but when her head hit the pillow, she was gone. There is no sleeping in when a toddler is around, so we kept her entertained as long as we could from our warm sleeping bags.

The weekend was filled with good food, good company, and good fun. Here are some pics.

We ended the weekend with some orienteering.
