highlands, nc: 4

Thursday afternoon we climbed Whiteside Mountain. Which is the mountain we stared at the entire week. It's summit is referred to as Monkey Face. If you look in the picture you can see that it kind of looks like the outline of a monkey's face (or Iron Man's face if you ask Micah). Nana (linda) stayed home with Leah, Connor and Eli and the rest of made the hike. Micah had been looking forward to climbing the mountain all week. He did great! I on the other hand brought up the rear the majority of the time. Seriously hiking with a belly is not an easy task! The views were gorgeous though and it was a fun time of course. Difficult or not I love hiking. I love being out in creation enjoying it and resting in the awesomeness of who created it!

We ended the evening with dinner, smores for dessert and after the kids were in bed the old kids went to Sunset Rock while Nana and Poppy monitored the children. We got there too late to see the actual sun but made it for the after effects :) This was our last night there so we wanted to make the most of it.

The next morning we went to Dry Falls again so that Andrew and Krista could see it and we packed up and headed home while everyone else enjoyed the cabin for another day.
