More travels

We went to an Apple Orchard in Boone and then traveled around Blowing Rock, NC on Saturday. We were fortunate enough to have some friends touring us around. Thank you C, E & K! :) My family had a wonderful time! The kids said several times today how much fun they had and wondered when we'd get to see you all again.

My daughter with her picked apple

and son with his.

Those two not only look alike, but walk alike too... hee hee!

C & E's very precious and VERY good little girl. I don't think we heard much of a peep from her the entire trip!

From the Orchard we saw this view... it was breathtaking!

We hiked a ton through the woods and some of it was uphill. So... both the kids took a break on this bench on the way up.

Boaters on the lake.

At the peak of our hike... we stopped at an outlook and were able to see down on the beautiful falls.

We also visited an old house (now shop). This was taken from their front porch. Can you imagine being able to wake up to this view every morning?
