"I've got to get away..."

Last week, Eric and I took a short vacation to Asheville, NC. We had a great trip! It was very nice to be away for a few days..and sleep as late as we wanted! :)

It was our first 'official' overnight trip away from Laura. Technically, she spent her first night away at the Gant's back in November when I was in the ER with a migraine..but I don't count that night! :)

My parents and sister came up to babysit...I think they had a great time.I don't think Laura missed us at all *tear* When we got back she was sorta excited to see us, but then just went right back to playing...oh well! I think she was more disappointed to see her babysitters leave... :)

We stayed at a cabin in Lake Lure (apparently its where Dirty Dancing and Last of the Mohican's was filmed) It was about 20 minutes outside of Asheville. Monday we spent the day in Asheville at the Biltmore and then Tuesday we were at Chimney Rock State park. You aren't allowed to take pics inside Biltmore, so I don't have many pictures to post, but here are a few from the trip.

Meanwhile...Laura was having a great time with her babysitters!

Can you believe she turns 1 this Saturday? Crazy! Time has flown by...! She is trying really hard to walk...and I think she could if she could just get up the courage...She has taken a couple of steps (like maybe 4) but definitely can't say she is 'walking' yet. She will walk around the house just holding onto one finger...but I know it won't be long before she is getting around on her own...

Just lounging around...and a very happy (and clean) baby!

I hope you have maintained the level of service that she was given during our baby-sitting time. She was one happy baby!!
