Friday we went to the Biltmore Estate. Ahhhh- mazing! I was drooling the entire time...can you imagine what everyone thought about this thing in the 1800's?
I couldn't take my camera inside the house so this is all I got.
Jim's dad and stepmom.
Me and Jim.
In the backyard.
The garden full of tulips and snapdragons. My fave!
The bass pond.
I didn't get any pictures of our wine tasting adventure but it was so fun! Their wines were delicious. We bought a bottle of champagne for our anniversary. It was strange spending more than $5 on some Andre champagne.
Saturday we went to Jim's dad's work. He works at a prison! It was so interesting! I loved every minute of it (even though I was nervous as can be walking by all the prisoners). I obviously couldn't take my camera in there so I didn't get any good pictures. I love the show "Lock Up" so I really want to go see a prison in person. Jim wasn't too thrilled about us going there. It was so worth it though!
Afterwards we went to this beautiful place on a mountain and took a few pictures after lunch.
Later that night we went to dinner at the Marina. So fun and pretty! There was a band playing and we all sat around and talked the entire night. After we finished eating we sat out by the water and just listened to the band and had a few cocktails. My kind of Saturday night!
This was the view from the restuarant's deck.
