Poppa and Gigi were extremely gracious and offered to watch the kiddos for a weekend if we would like to take some time away before the baby comes. We can't thank them enough!
Heading out Friday afternoon, we spent two nights at a wonderful B&B. If you're heading there yourself anytime, we highly recommend this place, where we had fresh coffee and tea brought to our door each morning, dessert was served with breakfast, and the bathtub filled with water that came from the ceiling - what more could you ask for? Our basic plan was to eat ourselves silly and wander around Asheville.
Wes probably summed up the town best: "This place is more Decatur than Decatur." Foodies, artists, colorful people who carry small monkeys on their shoulders and all. I missed that last particular Kodak moment, but did capture a few others.
Saturday night, the hosts at our B&B brought in live music, the Tater Diggers, during the nightly happy hour on the porch.
Sunday morning, we explored the Biltmore. After completely neglecting to take more than two photos of downtown, and any at all of our trip out to the Grove Park Inn, I made an effort to snap a few.
A big thank you to the geese who politely paddled out into the frame while I was taking this shot. Clearly they've been given instructions on providing guests with whatever they need to make their visit more enjoyable. I hope they pull down decent wages for their efforts.
