At the end of every peak season, Stew and I try to sneak away for a few days for some much needed rest and relaxation! That usually involves staying in our favorite condo in Asheville and eating at amazing restaurants for every meal! This year we planned a vacation to the same area, but this time we took the whole gang! We found a beautiful mountain cabin in Hendersonville! We’re 15 miles from Asheville and 15 miles from an apple orchard that our friends told us we had to see! This is our first official family vacation! I planned on doing one post at the end, but with all the photos I already took, I will definitely have to break it up!
Our drive was exactly 4 hours. We got here at noon and got settled. We made ourselves right at home. It took us approximately 3.7 seconds to cover the living room floor with toys.
We planned our menu and grocery list and I hung at home while the kids napped and Stew hit the grocery store. We have an amazing outdoor kitchen (the main reason we chose this house), so every meal will involve the grill! Tonight the menu was lemon chicken, brussels sprout and bacon kebabs, and potato wedges. The weather was perfect! We hung out on the back deck for most of the afternoon. The lighting was just right for capturing the kiddos in all their underwear-wearing glory!
This has been the best start to our vacation! Can’t wait to see what sort of adventures we have over the next few days!
