choo choo, take 2

So, we enjoyed our day out with Thomas so much last summer, that we decided to visit again this year. We even decided to make our day in Bryson City the first leg of a week-long stay in Western North Carolina. Of course it was hot, but our morning with Thomas was again a great treat. I couldn't help drawing comparisons to our trip just one year before. Last year, Sam spent most of his time in the baby bjorn. This time he was down and ready to go. I'm glad we didn't bother with the stroller, he wouldn't have had anything to do with it.

Enjoying the trains

Fearless & feeling right at home on the inflatable slide.

Sam loved this bubble table.

Seriously, he could have stayed here all day. And his hair & clothes carried the evidence.

I can't get over him sitting up there all by himself. He's not a baby anymore, that's for sure!

Thomas & the boys

A grin with mom too!

If a one-year-old takes a poop on a bear...
Bear Hug!

Just minutes outside of Bryson City.
Wiped Out!
 So, we reached our next destination, our cabin for the week, which was located just outside of Asheville. After unloading and exploring some, we headed downtown. Jack got his second wind just in time to participate in his first drum circle, while we waited for our table at Tupelo Honey Cafe...yumm! I could fully devote a post to the good eats we enjoyed while in Asheville. Our first dinner stop didn't disappoint. How can you go wrong with fresh biscuits served with honey?

Letting the beat move him.

I've got moves you've never seen.

Talk about photo overload. And that was just day one.
