Eva is busy being traveled to this week. So, I am taking on the travel guide duties. Apologies in advance.
Recently, we took our family up to Boone, NC. Our daughters experienced Grandfather Mountain, including an animal park that provides a home to individuals from indigenous species that cannot live in the wild (usually the fault of thoughtless humans). They also got their first experience in natural caverns at Linville Caverns.
We also spent hours cruising the Blue Ridge Parkway while small children napped, but I don’t have pictures of that due to making sure I did not drive off the edge of mountains. This tweet was slightly dishonest in its time frame. I wrote it after the car had come to a full and complete stop.
Kids napping. Sinatra singing. Driving the Blue Ridge Parkway. I’ve had worse days.
