A Trip to North Carolina


We made a trip to Morganton, North Carolina, last weekend where we visited our friends, the Whisnants. We drove straight through Thursday...12 1/2 hours. On Friday, we went out for lunch at Pizza Hut and then bowling. Several of the girls had never been bowling, and the rest of us hadn't been bowling for several years. We had a great time! We didn't record any scores!

On Saturday, we went to visit the Biltmore House. We weren't allowed to use our cameras there, so I don't have any pictures to post here. It was absolutely amazing! The house was built between 1889 and 1895. It is 175,000 square feet with 240 rooms, 34 bedrooms, and 43 bathrooms. Now, that would be plenty of room for us!

On Sunday, we went to church with the Whisnants. We enjoyed dinner at a little country restaurant. Then we went shopping at the Dillards outlet. Talk about bargains! We got $450 worth of clothing for $95!

We drove home Monday. It wasn't a long vacation, but one of the most relaxing we've had in a long time. Gary's phone hardly rang at all. He went three days without charging it! That has to be a record!!
