I have spent so much time in the mountains this summer. Can you blame me? The Appalachian Mountains are one of the most beautiful places on earth, and my parents bought a house there after retiring so of course I'm going to be doing a lot of visiting!
My whole family came together for some outdoorsy family fun last weekend. Stop one: Kayaking. Sadly, I didn't take any pictures because I was worried about water ruining my camera and decided to just live in the now, man. Stop two: hiking to a waterfall. I wore some sneakers, my staple summer shorts and a peasant top (love them) that looks just like another one I own, but I bought it anyway because it was $3.75 I love that other shirt and this one is slightly less cute, but also slightly more comfortable. I'm calling it a thrift store score.
It's okay to have two very similar tops if you love them! And they're not exactly the same. The other one is in this Disneyland post and is a little smaller with more white detailing. I've been peasant-blousing it up all summer!
Massive waterfall! This is the view from the top, and I couldn't get the entire falls in frame. It was quite a long way down.
My adorable nephew Nate was not so sure about that long drop!
But he broke out a smile once his older sister sat next to him.
They are such cuties! I love spending time with them! They're turning into such interesting people! We have great conversations about bugs and Legos and superheros. (Makayla, my four-year-old niece, also pointed out that I needed to shave my legs. Thanks Makayla! Way to be honest!)
I love spending time with you too, waterfall! Why is water so pretty when falling down rocks? It just is.
And to conclude this post, I'm throwing in some photos taken by Makayla while waiting for food at a restaurant. I'm hanging out with her ballerina doll, cheesing for the camera. Makayla's used to me taking 1,000 pictures of her, but now the tables have turned! I'd say she's not a bad photographer. She really captures the essence of me and the ballerina, don't you think?
