fall mountain trip 2010

We spent last week in the mountains of North Carolina for our annual fall mountain trip. We stayed in Cashiers and had the best time!
On Thursday we went to Dillsboro, NC. Camp enjoyed the toy section of the general store...

He played so contently and Santa got some great ideas for gifts!
funny side note: there was an older man in the toy section with long white beared and camp looked up at him and said "hey, ho ho" and went on playing...  ;)

I ended up buying him the awesome ambulance and it was his favorite toy until it broke...

I'm searching the internet for something like it and my searches are coming up empty! :(

We stayed in the prettiest house! I loved these pine cone lights...

and the shake siding!








On Friday, we spent the day in Highlands...home to one of my favorite stores, Dutchmans! I took more pictures in this store than of anything else from our trip!
enjoy the eye candy...





these flower prints were matted with our dining room chair fabric...such a great idea!




After Dutchmans, we met up with the boys at Kilwins...
I know I've mentioned before how much I love this store! Camp seemed smitten with it too!


My favorite sister in-law and ME!

love this picture...

this one too...

oh and this one!!

On Friday we ate at Carolina Smokehouse. We go every time we visit Cashiers and it's always so good!!

camp slept through lunch...

he also slept through his last Carolina Smokehouse experience...(he was only 6 weeks in this picture!)

sweet tea and bbq are mountain musts!

after lunch and shopping, we headed to the adorable park in the middle of cashiers...

camp had endured hours and hours of shopping, car riding, and sightseeing and he needed to be rewarded!

he had so much fun!

this little buddy was on his best behavior the entire trip...he's a good traveller for sure!!

We had yet another wonderful trip to the mountains and I can't wait to go back!!

my family used to go up to Highlands all the time to stay at my grandparents' mountain house. :) Do you ever go to Sweet Treats (ice cream shop) in Highlands? If not, you MUST go next time! so yummy. :)
