Mountain Trip by the Numbers

We’re back from yet another trip, and I’m overrun with laundry and things to do once again, so today’s post will be short and simple.  It’s our trip recapped in numbers!  I always love doing these!

10 – Times I had to turn around in my seat in the car to help the kids switch DVDs/get snacks/take off shoes/etc. on the trip up and back.

10 – Times that we crossed the Georgia/North Carolina border.

12 – Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins baked.

0.25 – Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins eaten by the kids.  (They didn’t like them… weirdos.)

2,949 – Feet up… the highest altitude reached.

3 – Bottles of wine purchased at the winery.

2 – Gorgeous waterfalls seen on our hike.

1 – Bucket of rocks sifted through to find gems.

2 – Beers consumed at the German restaurant in Helen, GA.


1 – Time we were asked if Jacob and Olivia were twins.

23 – Apples picked at the orchard.

3 – Baby calves seen at the petting zoo.

6 – Apple cider donuts purchased and eaten.

1 - Tacky souvenir frame purchased for our gallery wall.

2 – T-shirts purchased as souvenirs.

7 – Times that the GPS fell off of the dashboard when Brian stepped on the gas

2 – Times that the GPS fell off of the dashboard and Brian blamed it on the mountain.

Happy new week, everybody!  Days one and two of our trip will be on the blog tomorrow!

    1. Girl, they are so easy - combine 1 box spice cake mix, 1 can pumpkin, 1 cup chocolate chips and bake at 350 for 20ish minutes or until a toothpick comes clean!

  20. Hahaha love the GPS anecdotes! I only picked 6 apples at the orchard this weekend because I've never picked an apple in my life and I wasn't sure if I was getting the good ones. Ha! :)

  21. Love the GPS one! Also, I'm impressed with only 3 bottles. When we on our wine tour up north, we bought three cases... ;)

    1. Haha. Well, we had just bought two cases from Trader Joe's a couple of months prior so we didn't need that many!

  24. The "by the numbers" post is a great idea! I need to remember that when I don't have time (or functioning brain waves LOL) ;-) Wow, only 10 times you had to turn around in your seat for backseat maintenance, that's great!
