Trip to Boone, North Carolina

My mother-in-law and sister-in-law showed up at my house on Saturday evening and sugessted that we get up Sunday morning and head to Boone for a couple of days. I thought about it and said, WHY NOT! So we loaded up and headed out. We found our hotel, checked in and got situated and then headed out. We visited Mass General Store and several other little stores in downtown.

Once we were finished we headed for dinner at the Daniel Boone Inn. We had a wonderful dinner. They do things in a family still serving manner. Huge plates of all the servings are brought out to the table and placed on a lazy susan for everyone to eat from. They will refill the plates as often as you like and you get your drink, salad and desert included in the meal. For Alexis and myself the total cost was $16.03. Not bad for all you can eat in a place like this. The waitresses are all dressed in colonial dresses and the entire place is set-up in a down home country style!

After eating all that great food we decided to head to the room and rest for a little while and then take the girls swimming.

Our intentions were to get up on Monday morning and head to Grandfather Mountain, but we had a change in plans. Savannah got sick in the middle of the night and Nicholas was not at a 100% either. So we got up, ate breakfast and headed home.

Short trip, yes . . . but we had fun and got a change of scenery!
