Tuesday, Day 3:
the village of Blowing Rock (a.k.a. "Mitford"), including the Bass Pond, and the Blue Ridge Parkway to Linville Caverns
yes that's a bat!
Ethan is now totally in to rock climbing (as if a boy needs encouragment there!), Anna Kate was thrilled to sit on a makeshift empty ice cream bucket potty at a remote spot in the Parkway and pee outside (quote: "I love to pee outside!" more than once - memo to self: get that girl an outhouse for Christmas!) , Rose was carried through the cavern intoning, "drip, drip, drip" in her chirpy little voice, I got to see "Father Tim's church"... we had a great time - and it's not over yet!
