Our trip to North Carolina (part 4)…

Once we arrived at my aunt and uncle’s in Blowing Rock it was time to relax a bit and enjoy being outside.

Along the Blue Ridge Parkway.  The views are amazing.  My aunt and uncle took us for a drive the first evening we arrived.  The sun setting and the leaves turning made for some really pretty scenery.

Hiking through their Christmas tree farm.  It’s beautiful there.

We also did a little hiking on our own while we were there.  It was a fun trail for the two of us flat land people.

We had such a good time on our trip.  We received more “roll tides” than ever before.  It started with the flight attendant on our Wichita to Atlanta flight and didn’t stop the entire trip.  You gotta love Southerners!

My aunt and uncle were great hosts to us during our stay there.  We were so grateful to get to take a vacation and at such a beautiful time of year.

Adopting one child won't change the world; but for that child, the world will change.

I am the wife to my wonderful husband and joint care giver to the many animals we have acquired on our small farm here on the prairie. This is a bit about our life on our farm. We are striving for simplicity and self-sufficiency, determined to become debt-free, trying to live in tune with the natural cycles of this earth, and challenging ourselves to transition to a diet based on traditional foods. It isn't always easy, and we don't always succeed, but it is a fun learning process. Join us as we stumble through learning how to provide for ourselves, get off the treadmill, and work toward a simpler way of life.
