Climb Every Mountain

We're heading to the mountains this weekend. I'm so excited. While we're there we're going to a place called Tweetsie Railroad. Apparently it's an old fashioned western-themed amusement park. They have an old steam train that you can ride (and apparently get robbed by some bandits), they have cowboys, indians, an old fashioned jail, shooting gallery and country fair. They also have an area where a you can go gem mining or panning for gold. The kids are going to love it!

We're going with friends of ours who have kids the same age and I'm just so looking forward to the last getaway before school starts.

I've heard Tweetsie is great! We just moved from Hickory, and all of my friends with little boys made at least one yearly pilgrimage to see Tweetsie! Stop by the ice cream joint in Blowing Rock if you get the chance - it's delicious!
Great Blog!
