Mountain Weekend

This Willises hosted us for a big family weekend in the mountains.  It was such a special time to all be together in Blowing Rock.

The view from our deck...
Grandpa with his two grandchildren...
Grandma with her two favorite people...
The house where we stayed had a great swing right in the front yard.  Berk was in love.
Our family took Buddy & Kathy on one of our favorite hikes in the area.  We headed out toward the Hebron Rock Colony.  We didn't quite make it the whole way, but we had a great hike together as a family.
By lunch time we were hungry after the hike, and stopped off at Mellow Mushroom in Blowing Rock.  Naturally, Berk found a spot to read while we waited for our table.
I mean.  I get to be married to this guy!!
Watching Stephen with little ones is one of my favorite things.  There is always a mutual love that can't be denied.  Little Eleanor loves her Uncle Stephen for sure!

Berk discovered the art of rock towers, and built a pretty great one.
Sunday morning, this was the beautiful sight over the Blue Ridge Parkway.  What a wonderful way to begin the Sabbath and end our little vacation.
