Boone Trip

Labor Day weekend, my father-in-law called to offer us a free room at a friend's cabin for a couple nights. We had another Bradley class reunion that Saturday morning, but decided why not? A free mountain vacation? Yes, please!

The Bradley reunion was awesome, of course. Seven different families tied together because we all had our babies within a couple months of each other. And of course all our babies are amazing. In May, at our first reunion, our babies were still practicing tummy time. Now, they are crawling and cruising all over the place! Next time, they will be walking, and then talking! Gah!

Anyhow, it was great to get away for the weekend. The type-A part of me (a really big part) freaked out with such short notice, but it worked out fine, even if we did leave the house a mess. The drive was great - Adelaide seemed pretty content. It was only just over 2 hours to get there. Not bad at all!

It was nice to hang out with family and visit with my pregnant sister-in-law. It was crazy crowded in downtown Boone, so even though it was my first visit there, we pretty much stayed at the house. We did venture down to the grocery store to get ingredients for a very tasty vegan pizza that has become my most favorite pizza to date. I may do a Yummy Monday post on that sometime!

Adelaide was pretty clingy the whole weekend. Don't know if it was because she was a little sick, or if it was because we were in a new place with semi-unfamiliar people. Either way, I could barely leave her side. Made it a little less relaxing, but all the same, it was great to get away.

The house had an amazing view, as you can see in the photos. It was a mile high. The guy who owns it lets friends and friends of friends stay there for free. Oh, to have that kind of money! I'd live there year-round, it's so nice.

Any mountain weekend is a great weekend for me!

  1. Wow, that place is awesome.

    That's so great that you have frequent Bradley reuinions! We've only had one - Ivy was about 8 weeks old and we went in to speak with the next class about my birth experience. We haven't had anything since though. Our class was enormous and we never really connected the way (I assume) other classes do.


I love comments! I read every single one and try to respond to most of them (during the baby's naps or in between loads of laundry). I value any and all thoughts, advice, and tidbits that you want to share!
