Trip to the mountains

I mentioned in my last post that I would have to put up some pictures of our recent weekend getaway to Luke's parents' house in the mountains of NC. Well, obviously, it's been a couple weeks, but I am finally posting them!

 The first morning was just the four of us and Mimi (Luke's mom). We decided to go visit the historic home of Carl Sandburg, American author/poet who spent his later years in Flat Rock, North Carolina. Actually, we didn't visit the house itself (that will be for our next trip!), we just visited the goat farm! His wife raised hundreds of prize-winning dairy goats throughout the early 20th century, but they have continued the goat dairy to this day. This was definitely a highlight of the trip for the girls.

Sam and Jonathan arrived that afternoon and we spent the following morning hiking to some beautiful waterfalls. The rest of these pictures are all from Jonathan's camera (I was too busy keeping the girls on the trail).

And of course, no trip to a new town is complete without checking out the playgrounds. We actually headed over to Hendersonville for this one and it did not disappoint. New playgrounds are always fun!

We had so much fun and are looking forward to going back later this summer. Anna Kate can't stop talking about the apple-picking that she's been promised!
