Garden Family Camping Trip May 2018

We had beautiful north Georgia weather for our garden families camping trip to Fallen Oak Farm in Dahlonega. A BIG thank you to Beth and Ben Erredia as well as Enzo, Saul, and Niko for hosting us this weekend. They worked so hard to make their special space well-groomed and comfortable for us! Thanks to all of you who were able to join us for the day or for the overnight. It was too much fun!

We found snails and beetles and a skink and put them in a big cardboard box to watch throughout the weekend. We climbed trees. We played Hide and Seek in the forest. We had a delicious potluck supper and a campfire with banana split 'smores. We played Ladder Golf and Wildlife Beanbag Toss and Animal Track Twister. We hiked along a nearby lake where we saw lot of cows and found a tiny turtle. We hiked to an overlook above the Etowah River and saw mountain laurel, Frazer magnolia, trillium, Solomon's seal, and wild geranium in bloom. We pitched our tents next to the river so we could hear the rippling water as we slept. We finished off the trip with a breakfast of strawberry, blueberry, blackberry, pecan, chocolate chip pancakes!
