Biltmore Vaca

Katherine and Andie were out of school for 2 weeks and it was about to drive me nuts! (can you relate?) I had this great idea that we should get out of town for a minute, for a change of scenery. I decided that we should go see the Biltmore Estate in North Carolina. I have seen it on HGTV several times, and have always wanted to go. Ben had to work, so I called in some back up (Allyson). Allyson is always up for something fun and since she had some time off she was ready to go. We loaded up the girls and left on Friday morning. It takes about 3.5 hours to drive there. We drove around downtown Ashville that evening and had dinner at a yummy southern restaurant. We spent all day Saturday at Biltmore. We hung out until 6PM ,and then we headed home. We arrived home at about 10PM Saturday night with a car full of very sleepy girl's. Mission accomplished, we got out of town and had a ton of fun too!


Check it out at biltmore.com, or something like that. Here are a few pics from our little getaway.
