Family Trip to Asheville

We went on a long-weekend trip to Asheville a couple of weeks ago.  Noel and I kept saying it was the perfect "fall trip"...the weather, the leaves, and everything was just gorgeous.

We toured the Biltmore House that morning.  Best decision for the house was getting each boy their own hand-held audio guide.  Totally worth every penny.  The guide was narrated by the Vanderbilt's dog, and the boys were super engaged throughout the tour.  After the tour in the actual house we walked around all the gardens...truly breathtaking!

After the tour, and getting a ridiculously expensive piece of chocolate each, we ate a yummy lunch at the Stable Cafe.  

Our original plan was to leave the Biltmore after lunch, but one of the tour guides told us about Antler Hill Village.  It's a village on the Biltmore property that was included with our regular ticket and it was my favorite part of the entire day.  I'm so glad we found out about it.  There was a petting zoo, crafts for kids, a playground, and lots of open space for corn hole and walking around.  We ended up staying on Biltmore property the entire day.

The next day we hiked one of the trails at Pisgah National Forest.  

It was really great to get away for a little bit with Noel and the boys. I hope y'all are having a great December so far!
