Today we took a little trip to Boone for the day. Laura had to get back to school so we decided to drive up with her to have some fun and see where she was going to live next year. Ashley went with us, too.
And, can I just say that the Lord has blessed us with absolutely gorgeous weather so far this Spring Break? It was even almost hot today in the mountains. That is saying alot after the extremely cold and snowy winter they just had!
When we got there we ate at a really yummy restaurant called Our Daily Bread. If you are ever in Boone, I would definitely recommend it. I got a turkey reuben and roasted red pepper bisque and it was delicious!!
We had lots of fun just walking around campus and seeing where Laura was going to live next year.
Then we drove to the top of a mountain that overlooked campus and had fun taking some silly jumping pictures.
My kids definitely keep me young! haha
After that we stopped at a little coffee shop called BeansTalk and got some iced amaretto coffee. Here is Steve just relaxing on the couches at BeansTalk...
Then we headed to Blowing Rock to just walk around and shop and enjoy the sunshine...
We found a new store in Blowing Rock today that was so pretty! It was called Poppy's and oh.my.word. It was decked out for spring like you wouldn't believe. It was about 4-5 rooms of wall-to-wall decorations and flowers. I loved it! We go to Blowing Rock alot, so I can't wait to go back and see what they do for each season!! I took a few pictures inside...
These pictures don't really do it justice. It was just so spring-y and whimsical.
We had such a fun day. Tomorrow Ashley and I are off to Charleston for the day! Plus I want to watch the Duke vs. Butler game tonight, so I better get going! I want to pull for the ACC, but it's hard not to pull for Butler just because they are such an underdog and I love their coach's story! Either way it will be a great game!
