Smoky Mountain Sunday

Saturday night we all slept so great and we woke up Sunday feeling good and ready for a fun day in Boone and Blowing Rock! Our first stop was Boone Bagelry where we met Mark for breakfast before he headed back to Raleigh.






That place was packed!! It is definitely a morning hotspot. And it was delicious!

After we said goodbye to Mark, we headed to the Blue Ridge Parkway and Julian Price Park. It was still a little overcast so the views weren't as good as they usually are, but we still had fun. Steve brought the football. Poor guy...he has all these girls and if Mark's not there, he tries to get us all to toss the football or make teams and play and it just doesn't work. haha He's a good sport about it though.


Laura and Lindy had fun just goofing around...












Steve did teach Laura and Lindy and Ashley how to skip rocks! We laughed so hard because Ashley never could get the hang of it. haha


After we left the Parkway, we drove back to Blowing Rock just to browse around. They have the cutest little shops and it is totally decked out for fall!






We were so excited because one of our very favorite places to eat in Blowing Rock, Cheeseburger In Paradise, went out of business a few years ago, but it is back now! So, of course, we had to eat there for lunch before we headed back home to Charlotte.

Today it was back to reality. Steve was back to work and Ashley and I were back to school. Lindy is still here so she spent the day with her roommate Chelsea who is also from here. Chelsea's mom is a hair dresser. Lindy has been wanting to dye her hair for a while now so today Chelsea's mom dyed it brown for her!


I wasn't sure I was going to like it, but I think it looks cute on her!
