Blowing Rock

 Brian went out of town Friday and Saturday, and I am super proud to report there were no injuries, random wild animal attacks, home collapses, or diarrhea of any kind.  We survived!  We spent some time with Nana on Friday night, then went home to watch a movie and make cookies.  Of course, I didn't sleep worth a flip, but WE SURVIVED! 

We spent most of Saturday at home until evening when we went over to Ron and Freddie's to watch the UT game.  The game was pretty rough.  Let's not ever speak of it again.

After church on Sunday, we went on a little adventure.  First, we drove to Grandfather Mountain and had a fun picnic.

 I was told that this was supposed to be a wild deer chasing a girl.  Hence, the antlers I suppose.
 I can see it now: "Wild Deer, Running Girl outdoor drama. Performances daily at Grandfather Mountain".  
Kind of like Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.  Only not.
 I looked over, and they had spread themselves out on the field.  They were both just sitting there in a trance-like state.  
 Then they found our name on some random monument.

 After the picnic, we drove on the Blue Ridge Parkway for a while and looked at the beautiful trees.  The pictures never show the bright colors, but just take my word for it!

 Time for Blowing Rock!
 Fun at the park!


 We visited several shops and then stopped for ice cream.
 It was National Caramel Apple Day, so of course, Brian and I had to share one!
We had such a fun day, and the weather was perfect!!!
