I had a hard time getting together a vacation this summer with all kinds of crazy schedules going on but I was determined. Unfortunately Sam couldn't come due to Volleyball practices but Abbie, Jacob and I headed to Ashville on August 13th for 5 days. It was a nice drive (only 6 and 1/2 hours from Richmond) and went quickly because we listened to Harry Potter on audio :) Here are a few photos from our trip:
The first night - yummy and sinful pizza - red potato, cheese and bacon.
Followed by a movie in our room.
A few minutes after we pulled into Biltmore Estate we saw this Mama and her babies - so cute!
We took an awesome go at your own pace audio tour of Biltmore. Abbie and Jacob taking a break on the balcony.

One of many, many photos of the gardens at Biltmore.
The next day headed back to Biltmore and went horse back riding. It is so beautiful on the grounds!
Some of the horses.
Our last day, we went to a near by State Park and enjoyed a relaxing day in nature.

All in all a fun, relaxing, family bonding time! LOVED it! (Thanks Mom and Dad! - This was our Christmas gift from last year - awesome!)
