It was wonderful. We had an amazing time.
And the photos are done within a week! Whoa!
We stayed in Kallie's Grancy and GrandBob's old house that her uncle now owns. We didn't think we would ever go back, so that was a lovely surprise. It's on the side of a mountain in Pisgah Forest, Brevard, NC. Gorgeous.
The trip started with apple picking at J.H. Stepp Farm's Hillcrest Orchard! We picked a peck and are still enjoying our golden delicious, fuji, and cameo apples. We didn't really like Arkansas Black. The corn maze was funny - David tried scaring Kallie and her mom, but he was caught by the camera! And the sunflowers were fantastic! Highly recommend going to JH Stepp!!
We walked around downtown Hendersonville twice, which is super cute. Good food, good stores.
We ate at Ed Boudreaux's Bayou BBQ twice (in Brevard)! And to counter balance, we ate at the salad bar at the Ingles grocery store one night. A great grocery store in the middle of nowhere-Brevard!
Saturday was spent in Asheville, walking around downtown, the Biltmore Village, and Grove Park Inn. We enjoyed our trip to Asheville last year, so we just made sure to see some things we had missed.
Oh, we also blew a tire! Kallie was the only one to see the incident. The culprit was a long piece of metal, like a wrench or something of the sort. It left a huge hole in the tire, which quickly went flat. It also sprang into the air and hit the car driving toward us on the other side of the road. We apparently have really bad car luck right now. We've since changed our insurance coverage to be more helpful! Hah! Things come in three, right? We're prepared. Thankfully the car had a full-sized spare, so our trip wasn't too hindered.
Sunday morning, we went to Sliding Rock and a waterfall before heading to CANOE the French Broad in Rosman (west of Brevard). It was a wonderful day! The weather was perfect the whole trip, actually! We drove to Headwaters Outfitters and lo and behold - David KNEW SOMEONE! Ridiculous. The other couple going canoeing with us was friends with David's sister, Amy. Everywhere we go, David knows someone. Anyway, the photos from our awesome canoeing trip (with some rapids!) are on Kallie's mom's camera, so those will come later.
Someone is hiding in the bottom left.
Haha! Love this one!
Kal's dad carved TOVA!
Such a wonderful time!
