My July 4th Adventure

So I spent this weekend in the woods! As soon as I left the MCAT testing center, we hopped in the car and road-tripped it to paradise. Usually, when I say paradise, I think of the beach! But being out in the woods and enjoying this side of nature is very refreshing and peaceful! Some precious new friends came along with us, and it was awesome to go on these adventures with them! They made the trip ten times as fun!! :) We went kayaking down the river, hiked to a waterfall, explored caverns, played on the lake, watched fireworks over the water from the boat, cooked out, played games, watched movies, and just had such a great time with great company!

 Addie took this picture from her lime green kayak! This was TOO fun!! I can't wait to go again, and I think I'm even up for some rapids next time!! I'm so glad we did it!! This was an all girl trip, but the boys went on a three hour trip one day, and the parents even went out for a short trip while all the younger folks made supper!

This was taken at the waterfall we hiked to. This picture does not do the beauty justice AT ALL. The water was so refreshingly cool and the greenery was dense that it formed a canopy over the river-which is why this picture is a little dark! I wish I could have stayed all day!!

I was so blessed to spend my July 4th in such a beautiful place with friends and family.  I must admit, I needed an outdoorsy getaway after such a stressful summer of constant studying inside!

Hope you had a great Fourth!!
