These are all views from the cabin where we stayed. Simply breathtaking.
Alright, this week, no guessing. Instead I’m just posting a recap of the great vacation we had last week with my family in the NC Mountains. None of the husbands were in tow, so it was just the six sisters, and my parents (and the grandchildren of course!). Please forgive me, but I’ve got a ton of photos, and have condensed them into this many for the post. Hope you enjoy! Wish we were already back there. It was in the mid-70’s the entire week, and we enjoyed lots of pool time, with short trips to Linville Caverns and Grandfather Mountain. I’ve also got a guest post over at Short Southern Momma today, so stop on by and check it out.
Getting ready to head into Linville Caverns with Sisters #2 (black shorts) and #5 (green shorts).
Little did we know it would be 55 degrees inside.
Inside the caverns. We weren’t supposed to touch the rock. W wasn’t listening.
W wanted to get on this motorcycle so bad!
Enjoying some pool time. Kisses all around.
Lots of Banagrams played on the trip.
This is what happens when you play too many games of Banagrams…
You forget about what your daughter may be doing. Oops!
Practicing her pastel skills with her Grandaddy.
Animals at the park. This eagle was contained because it was injured from a gunshot.
Grandaddy and W watching the otters get fed.
Can you believe how close this black bear was to us?
It was like he was posing for us.
Off to the windy top of Grandfather Mountain. Yes, it was VERY windy!
This was right before we walked over the Mile High Bridge. So surreal!
All of us on the top of the mountain.
Such a fun trip! Much different than our usual summer beach trip, but it was worth it.
And we definitely beat the heat, that’s for sure!
Hope y’all have a Happy Wednesday!
On another note:
Much to my surprise on Monday morning, when I went to get E out of her crib, this is how I found her. At seven months, she is already crawling around and pulling herself up to sitting. I’m guessing that having an older sister has something to do with that. She wants everything that W has, and has finally learned how to get it. 🙂
After getting her out of her crib, we went to get W out of her crib. W loves for E to get in the crib with her, but only for a little bit.
We need to start letting E practice the “Cheese!” face, that W is so good at doing.
P.S. W doesn’t wake up with a bow in her hair. I just have to pull her hair back immediately after she gets up because her hair just hangs in her face. She has no cowlicks, so it just hangs straight down. Thank goodness she likes bows! And she will NOT let me pull her hair up into pigtails or ponytails. Maybe one day…
