This past weekend we went to the mountains with Josh and Lindsay. It was a perfect weekend to go away since school has started back and my graduate school started back too. Brent and I left late Friday night and ended up in a lot of rain and fog. The GPS also got us lost! I was not a happy camper, but we finally arrived at the condo.
The condo was in the Smokey Moutanins and was beautiful! We spent Friday night relaxing and spending time together. On Saturday, we got up and went on some adventures. We ended up on the Cherokee Reservation and looked around at some shops. At least, when I teach about the Cherokee, I can tell the students I've visited there. Then, we realized we were close to Harrah's Casino so we decided to go there. We ate at Paula Dean's Kitchen. It was so yummy! We went down to the casino for a little bit, but didn't win in any money. :) We spent the rest of the day visiting the small cities around the town.
We ended up the weekend visiting Grove Park Inn in Asheville. We ate lunch and spent the afternoon looking at the beautiful views. It was a wonderful, relaxing afternoon with Josh and Lindsay!
