McIver and I got up at the crack of dawn to drive to Brevard to pick Olivia up for camp. They said to be there anytime between 9 and 12, but I wanted to get there as close to 9 as possible. They were very organized with the whole pick-up process which I really appreciated. I just wish we had been able to walk around the camp a little bit to show McIver around.
Olivia was waiting with her counselor and cabin mates on 'the hill.' She was one tired little girl!
Olivia wanted to say good-bye to 'her horse' Oliver. I was not prepared to walk across a horse pasture in flip flops, but it made her happy, so that's what we did.
Campers walked through a tunnel under the highway to get from the mountain-side of the camp to the pastures down below.
Apparently, no trip to Brevard is complete without a trip to Dolly's Dairy Bar. They have tons of different ice cream flavors, including 22 named for different camps in the area that bring campers for a treat each summer.
Since Olivia had been eating (or not, as the case may be) camp food for the last week and a half, we let her choose where to go to celebrate her homecoming. She chose Forest Lake and we all enjoyed a great dinner and heard all about camp.
