4th anniversary getaway!

We wanted to have a little getaway for our anniversary as a family so we packed up and headed to Asheville Thursday morning. We got there shortly after lunch and decided to walk around downtown Black Mountain. It was a quaint little town and had lots of fun shops. We had lunch and then headed to downtown Asheville to see what it had to offer. Not really our cup of tea so we got back on the road and drove down the Blue Ridge Parkway. One of the main reasons we headed to western NC was for the mountains! Griffin had never seen them before and just oooed and ahhhed :)
We had our anniversary dinner at PF Changs. It was a beautiful night so we sat outside and literally stuffed ourselves! It was perfect.

Friday morning we got up and headed to the outlet malls of Pigeon Forge. We shopped mainly for the boys and Griffin enjoyed picking out things for Carter :)

We tried to convince him to get a new hat but he just cant stand to keep them on his head these days!

After an early yet amazing dinner at Longhorn, we drove to Cades Cove. This is one of JR and I's favorite places and we used to frequent there back in high school while dating. It is simply beautiful! We stopped and let Griffin see the horses first....

he was not scared!

We went to a spot we had enjoyed before and put a blanket out to soak up the scenery and watch the sunset.

We took full advantage of the beautiful background and had a mini photo shoot!

Griffin spotted a deer! We also saw a baby bear run across the road!!!

Saturday morning we got up bright and early to head to Knoxville for Griffin's first game! Here he is prepping for the game by reading his UT book. Dont you love the T on his face :)
