NC Mountain Glory!

October 6 - 9, 2010

David's grandparents have a home in Maggie Valley, NC. Mine and David's first trip together was to their house to spend our spring break with them in 2004. It was an amazing week that I will never forget. They took me all over the mountains and showed me the glories of the NC mountains. It truly is God's beautiful creation and I am so thankful that anytime we want to enjoy some time there, we have a place to go. The first two pictures below are from that first trip.

In October, we went together to their house as a family for the first time when Caroline was 14 months old. Granny & Papa didn't get to join us, but know that you were missed!

Caroline loved walking in Papa's apple orchard each day and sometimes picking apples.

She looked forward to it EVERY morning.

She also LOVED to pick the blueberries and squish them in her hands.

Caroline found these dominoes and had a blast putting them in and dumping them out of the container. There is a video after the picture.

Caroline loved Papa's vibrating chair. She would make sounds going along with the vibration. There is a video of it after the picture. She sounds so cute!

We took Caroline to the Apple Barn, which is one of our favorite places to eat in the mountains. I don't have any pictures in there, but this one is outside there.

We took one day to drive along the Blue Ridge Parkway, also a favorite thing. A kind couple took this family picture of us.

At the highest elevation on the Blue Ridge Parkway.

This is Looking Glass Falls, my FAVORITE waterfall in the mountains!

We had to take Caroline there and she was mesmerized!
