Blowing Rock, Day Four

Sunday's supposed to be the day of rest. Unfortunately for us, on this trip it was the day everyone got sick. The weather was pretty awful, though, so it wasn't too hard staying inside and lounging around all day. I love puzzles. All kinds: jigsaw, crossword, sudoku, brain teasers, etc. So, naturally, when I saw this puzzle at the Mast General store, we had to purchase it.

That's right, 1,000 pieces. And let me tell you, all of those jelly beans start to look exactly the same after about, oh, 2 minutes. It was tough!

But we did it!

You have no idea how much it pained me to immediately tear it up and put it in the box so we could leave the next day.

Anyway, we finally ventured out of the house late in the evening. Those of us that felt well enough headed over to Mellow Mushroom for some dinner.

No Blowing Rock vacation is complete without a trip to Kilwins.

Sometimes when you're 4 and a half, you have to ask for a little bit of help.

And that about sums up our family vacation. Here's hoping we get to go back next year!

Blow kisses bye-bye!
