What a great Sunday!  Oldest son came home from college Saturday night for his Spring Break.  When I woke up Sunday morning, a load of my clothes had been folded and put in a basket.  Oldest son was my favorite today!  We spent the day in the mountains.  We started out with brunch.  I wanted to go here:
They start out with a julep consisting of apple, orange, and pineapple juice, then bring out a basket of warm apple fitters and little bitty apple muffins with apple butter.  But, as often happens when you have 3 hungry boys who just can't wait, we ended up here:
We still had a little bit of a wait, but it was worth it.  I had to post this to show the "yankees" that yes, we actually do drink from mason jars (and we like it!):
 When we my husband bought the tickets for go-carts, it was a little cold for me, so I didn't ride.  Middle son is now the record holder for our go-cart races, although his uncle is having something to say about that!  

Just a little advice about this area:  This is recommended, especially if you have kids:
This seemed like a good idea at the time:


I'm anxious to see what this is going to be like when it opens:

We had a really good time walking around a town in the mountains and just enjoying being with each other.  It was so nice to sit around the dinner table with all of my boys.  All in all:  what an awesome day!
