Blowing Rock, Day One

Doc and I just recently returned from a fabulous trip to Blowing Rock, NC with my family. BR's about 10 miles outside of Boone and is just the cutest little town. My parents hit the road the day before the rest of us with their car packed full of fishing poles, pack-n-plays, ski clothes, etc. The rest of us got up bright and early on Thursday and headed to the airport.  I was lucky enough to get to sit with this funny guy:

And his little sister sat in front of us.

We were the last passengers off the plane so we could try to meet the pilot. Not only did we get to meet him, but we also got to check out the cockpit!

The rest of the day was pretty uneventful. We flew into Charlotte so we still had a bit of traveling by car left to do. Driving in the mountains is not fun at all! Luckily for all of us, by the time we made it to our condo, Mom and Dad already had the fridge and pantry stocked and were ready to make dinner.

On day two of our trip, we hit the slopes. Stay tuned!

Side note: when I was a little girl, I loooooved to play with my dad's hair and he looooooved for me to do it. He was a great sport - I could braid it, slick it back, put bows in it, whatever. I really think he just enjoyed getting his hair played with and his head massaged. Anyway, looks like someone's getting ready to take over for me...
