So I finally was able to go on my long overdue vacation! Me and the hubs took the girls and headed up to Brevard, NC with the rest of my family. This is better known as the land of waterfalls. It is home to over 200 waterfalls! We stayed at at awesome mountain rental house my mom found.
It was perfect!
We spent time hiking in DuPont State Forest which is where scenes for the Hunger Games were filmed!!!!! I imagined I was Katniss running through the arena and could imagine she and Rue moving about the forest. I even saw a meadow where I could imagine her laying Rue when she decorated her with flowers.
Triple Falls was one of the waterfalls seen during the scene when Katniss almost steps on Peeta when he is disguised.
Bridal Veil is where Katniss found relief from her burns right before the Careers found her. I love the hunger games and can't get over the fact that it was filmed right here in my home state!

We also visited a picnic area that was right by the river where the girls could enjoy some creek stomping. They loved getting their toes wet, but the water was FREEZING! I did not get it!
I was very sad to come back to reality and to top it all, I have to present all week at our districts Common Core Trainings....UGH! I love presenting and helping in my district, but I do not like getting up way early especially when I cant fall asleep before 12!
What vacations have you guys been on so far????
