Camping + a Festival Performance + Football = Fall Break!

We had a fall break from school last Thursday and Friday.  Kelly and I decided to take the girls camping with Sug and Pop at Oconee State Park.  Our original plan was to camp both Thursday and Friday, but after one night we changed our minds and came on home.  We enjoyed our one night but sleeping with a one year old that likes to move does not make for a good night's rest, not to mention me waking up worried that my girls were warm enough.  Our camping was not in a camper either, we were tent camping so I was ready to get back to my warm, comfy bed!  I think the girls had a blast though.  We roasted hotdogs and marshmallows, sat by the fire, and had a fun tire swing right at our campsite.  Kelly and I had fun on that ourselves as you will see in our pictures!  The next morning Pop cooked bacon and eggs and we had a yummy breakfast.  We got our stuff packed up and then went on a hike.  It was so beautiful outside.  We had a picnic lunch and then took Cohen to the fish hatchery.  Other than fighting the gnats and yellow jackets it was a nice afternoon.  Once we got home I was ready to crash!  Cohen had fell asleep on the way home at 4:00 and slept all night!   We were all worn out and ready to relax in the comforts of our home :)

We had just a little fun on the swing!  Hubs was not handling the dizziness after a while :)

 Saturday Cohen got to perform again at the Royston Fall Festival.  I had not talked much about this festival to her because I didn't know if we would actually be camping still or not.   She was real excited when she found out she could perform again "in the road" as she called it.   She did so good!  She had her smile on again and during her baton routine she threw her baton up and caught it!  I was so proud of her, which I would be no matter what she did.  Its so fun watching her have a good time out there though.  She likes to watch the older girls dance and twirl too.  This week she was measured for her recital costume so now she is extra excited.  This is what she has been looking forward to:)

Kate was staring at this girl.  She was taking something in

 After we left the festival we headed straight to Brock's football game.  This was his last regular season game.  They pulled out a big win over the Stephens County team and finished their season undefeated! This was a big deal for him and the whole team.  These boys have worked really hard and I have to say, they were very good.  Now they head to the play-offs!!  You'll  notice in these pics below that Brock and some of the other boys have on bright pink socks...they wanted to support breast cancer awareness month.

This was from their big win over Hart Co. last week...an intense win for sure!  Love my #24
