Halloween in the Mountains

This past weekend, we loaded up the car and headed to visit my parents in Brevard, NC. Actually, I was packed into the back seat of the car, as we were traveling with lots of stuff, the baby and the two dogs. Funny that my enormous SUV doesn't feel so enormous anymore. I think we are going to have to invest in a car top carrier rig. Here come the Clampett's!

One plus to waking up prior to 6AM is catching the sunrise at my parent's house. Absolutely breathtaking. There sure is something special about going home. I just feel like I can relax, take a deep breath, enjoy the scenery and count on my mom for baby help and amazing food. I can check out of the hustle bustle of the city for a few minutes and boy is it refreshing!

On Saturday, we went into town (isn't that a hilarious saying? I never thought about it until I lived in town) for Brevard's Halloween Festival. It was chilly but beautiful. There was a stage of bluegrass music and Baisden was enamored. I don't know the name of this group below, but their practice session was so fun to listen to. The kids in this band are so talented.

We decided to dress Baisden as an Ole Miss cheerleader for the festival. It's not her "real" Halloween costume but it is very cute and kept her warm. We borrowed this (and a Carolina one) from a friend with twin girls. Can't wait to dress her up for a Carolina game!

She's a natural. I think Josh hopes that this is as close to cheer-leading as she gets :)

Before we left on Sunday, we hopped in the mule and drove through some property that neighbors my parent's. Sunday was glorious weather.

Since B loves the cow so much in her Animals bath book, we thought we would introduce her to some real cows. She wasn't too impressed. It does take a lot to impress this one.

Daddy's tosses can always muster a smile out of our serious girl.

Papa B navigated the mule with Josh in the front and Mom, B and I in the back. She loved it and I can almost hear her little voice yelling, "Faster, faster!"

Clapping is our thing so we had to get some of that in. We clap for lots of things these days!

We had a great time in the mountains and hope we can time a future visit with some snow!
