Can you believe that we have already celebrated the 4th of July? The summer is just flying by. For the past few years, we have spent the 4th up in the mountains. We just love it and it's such a nice break from the heat. The mornings and evenings or slightly cool and during the day is a perfect 80 degrees. We had such a great weekend. We started Saturday morning off with homemade waffles and topped them off with festive red and blue berries and a little syrup.
Then we dressed up Riley (my sister's dog) and Leighton for the neighborhood parade. There were lots of children and pets in the parade. It was really cute. After the parade, we enjoyed delicious Woodlands BBQ. It's a 'must stop' restaurant if you are ever in Blowing Rock.
Leighton loved her new ride.
Later that evening we enjoyed burgers and bluegrass music at Chetola and then headed to the Blowing Rock Country Club for fireworks.
We relaxed the remainder of the weekend and enjoyed the scenery, playing games and eating good food.
