first somewhat successful fishing outing. His attention span is not quite long enough to really put in the time required to catch much though. So, we stopped at a park with a fishing lake. After a good 10 minutes, he was done. So, we were glad we had not planned a whole day around fishing.
Sunday was spent exploring several different areas of Asheville. A trip to a giant playground was fun until the heat got the best of us. We strolled around the Historic Biltmore Village, which later required a re-visit since most shops were closed. We also enjoyed one of our favorite meals of the trip. Sunday lunch at Luella's BBQ. The place has Cheerwine on tap, macaroni & hoop cheese as a side, serves hush puppies with a pulled pork sandwich & had a two-man band playing a live set. Sam bee-bopped to the music, and we enjoyed relaxing with the familiar taste of barbeque on our tongues. Did I mention the place's phone number is 505-RIBS?
We had planned to take in a minor league baseball game Sunday afternoon, but when thunderstorms prevented that, we took the boys to see Winnie the Pooh instead. Jack was his usual movie-loving self. Sam was a terror. He wouldn't sit still. He wouldn't wander quietly. Even the lollipop was no help. I swear he's just like the owl in the old Tootsie Pop commercial, "1 lick, 2 licks, 3...crunch," and it's gone. Thankfully, the movie was only an hour. By the way, it's a cute flick. Made me fall in love with that silly old bear all over again.
