Not Exactly San Fran...

...but when we were scheduled to go, there were fires and no electricity.  So we went to North Carolina instead.  How's that for a change of plans?

A few random pictures of me with Nora, and the family in general.  I bought an instant print camera, so she could have pictures of her vacation at once; 2 year olds don't have great long term memories, and I thought having an instant picture would make her happy.

 We went to an old farm, and this very friendly cow was so eager for company that she stuffed her head right through the fence.  Scared Nora, but Shannon tried to demonstrate that cows are nice.

We took a road trip to the Biltmore.  250 rooms, decorated with 74 Christmas trees.  I'm glad I don't have to clean that place!

And, finally, a sign outside a brewery in Asheville.  One of my favorite things from the trip.  Okay, maybe just my favorite sign.  Whatever.

Happy Weekending, everyone!

We really like Asheville and I keep saying we we need to go to Biltmore at Christmas time. The first time I went there in the early 70's, the Vanderbilts were still covering the expenses and it costs $5 per carload to get in but much more of the house is open to tourists now.
