dual road trip with mom & will
05.15.2009 - 05.17.2009
I took off a Friday and Mom and I drove over to Asheville to go to Biltmore House. We hadn't been in years and mom still had the ticket I'd bought her for Mother's Day a few years ago - oops Anyway, they've opened up four new rooms so we wanted to check it out. Great weather and not too crowded at Biltmore. Couldn't take pictures inside, but I really liked the newly opened room that was Mrs. Vanderbilts, the one she gave birth to her kids in, had a great balcony sitting area.
After that, we met up with Will and I left with him and mom went home. Will and I were going to stay in Cullowhee, NC so that he could take his final exam for the Wilderness First Responder course. On the way there, we detoured to Black Mountain first to eat at his fave restaurant there, My Father's Pizza. Black Mountain is a really nice little mountain town with lots of cute shops and a great chocolate store.
We went to the cabin we rented in Cullowhee and Will took his exam the next day (and made a 98!).
Then we drove home in the trusty old non-air conditioned Jeep!
