Although our next trip was supposed to be in May, we found a way to sneak away for a weekend without the kids to Pine Mountain, Ga and then a few days to the Gulf Islands National Seashore in Florida, as a family.
We also happened to be in town for the city’s annual festival, Pine Mountain Days. We met some great small business owners and picked up some fried pork skins, a fried apple pie, and a small blade.
Of course, we also did some sightseeing and learned some history. Phillip is fascinated with airplanes, so we knew that going to see the Blue Angels would be a big hit for him. However, it turned out to be a huge hit for the whole family.
I think we found a hidden gem when we came across Uncle Sandy’s Macaw Bird Park. It’s a rescue shelter for exotic birds and we really enjoyed it. We all got to feed the birds and learn a little bit about them!
Before heading home, we wanted to see if we could cook a whole meal over campfire…and we did! We are still kinda new at this thing but we made pancakes, scrambled eggs, and sausage and the kids LOVED it! Not a big deal to some but after some trial and error, we’re figuring this thing out 🙂
We had a great time this past week in Pine Mountain and in the Pensacola area. It still amazes us that it’s been less than a year since we got the RV. Actually, this time last year, we didn’t even know we wanted one! A lot can happen in a year!
