My 27th Birthday was last week and Bryan and I had been talking about taking a weekend vacation as my gift. We went back and forth on to go or not and to where and the conversations seemed to come to a dead end. Randomly Tuesday afternoon he called and asked if I still wanted to go to the mountains and could I get off work Thursday and Friday. To cut it short we took off Thursday at 6am headed for a home we rented in Highlands, NC.
We made the road trip pretty successfully considering having a 6mo old teething baby in tow!
First stop, lunch at the Dillard house. Oh memory lane! I remember going there many times as a child.
We made it to our weekend home and were so happy to see the snowstorm week prior had left us a winter wonderland. This was Harper’s first time to the snow too
Most of the trip we spent exploring mountain roads, drove to Franklin, Cherokee and Maggie Valley.
We ate in a few meals and just enjoyed some quality family time away! Tripp is breaking his 2nd tooth and really just enjoyed his daddy time. He was also mesmerized by the fireplace.
We hadn’t really done much so decided to try out Bryan’s fly fishing abilities… He didn’t catch anything but it was nice to be outside on a gorgeous Saturday in the mountains!
All in all, a great family weekend!
