asheville, day three

Another awesome day today. We spent almost the entire day at Biltmore and Jonah really only cried once... when we took him on the elevator. He is terrified of elevators. We spent the morning touring the house and then ate lunch right outside in the "stable" area. Jonah ate his entire lunch (sweet potatoes and pear strawberry granola) by mouth and didn't complain about a bite. He was AMAZING! After lunch we went up to the farm and let the kids pet the animals. Jonah never cried or even complained, but there was a lot of "all done chicken," "all done horse," and "all done goat." He was a little tired. But he was a sweetheart all day, and tonight, I sang him to sleep in my arms, and he went down without a fight. It has been an amazing day. Tomorrow we hope to go horseback riding, but we're waiting on a call back. We are having a great time... relaxing, laughing, eating, seeing the sites... Jonah is having the time of his life. I couldn't ask for a better time. We all needed this.

Photos from today. No photos were allowed in the house, and the outside of the house was so big I never could get much of it in my lens. Crazy. (Sorry there are so many. I couldn't decide.)

I just wanted to let you know how terribly hard it is to try to read your posts with the blue flowers behind the words. Strains my eyes. A one colour box is much better... was easier to read before the blog changes. But maybe others have commented on this too....
