We all got to enjoy another great visit in Plymouth over the weekend. We all went down on Friday and celebrated MawMaw's birthday on Saturday. We spent some time at the house and playing with cousins. On Saturday Brenden stayed at MawMaw's house while the rest of us headed back to Durham. Brenden is staying with MawMaw until Wednesday and is very excited about the stay. He LOVES to spend time with Foster and Devon, visit with Granddaddy and Mema, and play with MawMaw and PawPaw. We're so thankful for great family!

"No, louder Mommy!"

This weekend we decided to head to Blowing Rock for a little vacation before intersession comes to an end. We normally go to Blowing Rock every fall as a couple, but this was our first time going and taking the kids. We were a little worried about what we would do with the Brenden and Bryleigh while we were there, but the weekend turned out to be great and our worries were unnecessary.
On Friday night we ate some dinner at the Mellow Mushroom in downtown Blowing Rock and then took Brenden to the park so he could play. The weather was very chilly so we couldn't stay out too long with Bryleigh. On Saturday morning we spent most of our day at Tweetsie Railroad. Honesty, we were not really looking forward to our visit here because we had never been and didn't know what to expect. However, Brenden LOVED his time at Tweetsie and rode all of the rides not once, but twice before we left. It was a blast! The weather was beautiful and Bryleigh did great the whole time we were there. It was the first time in awhile that we had the opportunity to pay attention to Brenden and allow him to do some of the daring things that he loves to do but doesn't have the chance to regularly. He was so brave on all of the rides and would either just giggle until he couldn't breathe or would hold his hands up saying "Weeeee". He enjoyed seeing the cowboys, riding on the train, and going on the chair lift. We're so glad that we decided to go ahead and try the events out during our visit this time.
The remainder of our time in Blowing Rock was spent eating and shopping which is really what we love to do there every time we go. We had beautiful weather - Bobby got to see the leaves changing colors as they were beginning to fall and Brooke didn't have to bundle up too much to go outside each day. It was definitely a GREAT way to spend our last weekend before returning back to our normal schedule and routine today! Now if we could just figure out a time to go back by ourselves.......
