Vacation on the Mountains

Baby Girl and I at Grandfather Mtn.
We enjoyed a fun family vaca up to the mountains of North Carolina. It was our second trip to Blowing Rock and our first to Highlands. Blowing Rock was amazing. Very relaxing and this time, we got to try some new places like the Village Cafe and Proper (actually that was in Boone). We visited Grandfather Mountain and Tweetsie Railroad. What we initially thought would be a few hours here and there, turned into full day trip. The baby girl did great.

Off to Highlands and I was pleasantly surprised by how incredibly gorgeous it is up there. The drive over was in the midst of a torrential downpour so I started thinking it wasn't worth it. I was so wrong. The town was quaint and full of plenty to do without too many things to do. Love that about vacation spots. We visited the waterfalls and sunset rock. We shopped a little bit and my new mother-in-law and I walked a lot. It was so relaxing.

Of course, all good things come to an end AND mine came to a screeching halt when I got so sick on the drive home. I was so sick I could barely keep my eyes open or enjoy reading or do anything that exterted more energy than sleeping. Being sick sucks and you never quite get it until you feel so yuck again.
