Fall Bucket List Buster: Weekend Adventures in Blue Ridge

I know. I know. Technically we are not quite into the “Fall season,” but I am not going to semantics and silly dates get in the way of an opportunity to check off some pretty awesome bucket list adventures off of our list! Due to inclement weather school closures and an already scheduled 3 day weekend Waring, Addie, and I took the liberty to invite ourselves (sorry, not sorry) on a camping trip with my parents to Blue Ridge, GA.

We stayed in my grandparent’s camper on some family/friend property near Blairsville that has been outfitted for camping (complete with full hook-up and bath house!!). The pictures below pretty much speak for themselves. We had a blast!

Here are just a few bucket list items that have been checked off:


-Apple Picking (September Wonder apples are the best….but we all prefer the Apple Cider Donuts!)


-Go to a Fall Festival (Blairsville Heritage Days Festival)

-Go to the Mountains (this was Addie’s first trip. Her first comment was “Mountains aren’t purple?—> The girl reads too many books!!

-Making a fire (okay, so technically someone else made it…but we enjoyed it!)


Now that we have a head start on Fall, we may be able to check off some bucket list items two and three times this season! Happy Fall Y’all!

Note to self: remember this always.


Glad we DIDN’T do this…


Addie loves searching for “treasures” AKA rocks!


Being a farmer is hard work!
Searching for gold!
