And the fun Summer of 2015 continued...
|Wednesday, 6/24/15 - We attended a second showing of Jaws - The 40th Anniversary|
tonight on the big screen at Opry Mills Theaters. Still funny, still scary and still a summer classic!
|We rented a really great 4-bedroom house about 12 miles east of Asheville with this stunning view from the upper deck.|
Below is the link for it because we will be coming here again when we get the chance!!
|It was a happy and historic day in the U.S. today as gay marriage was legalized in all 50 states by the Supreme Court. We stumbled upon this rally downtown and Ashlee and Brenda even got interviewed by a local TV station.|
Saturday, 6/27/15 - After sleeping in, we headed down south to another one our favorite North Carolina mountain towns, Brevard, today where we had lunch at Rocky's Grill and Soda Shop downtown. The food was as tasty as the throwback theme of this quaint place which has been open here since 1942. We stopped briefly at the new Oskar Blues Brewery, but their food truck wasn't open yet and we were starving. But we will be back because this place looks great!

Sunday, 6/28/15 - After a nice sleep-in and enjoying some more time on the upper deck of the house, we grudgingly headed back westward today stopping for a great brunch in Knoxville at The Tomato Head in their quaint downtown Public Square area. It was another great trip to Asheville and the mountains of North Carolina. I guarantee it won't be another four years until we are back here again.
Saturday, 7/4/15 - Today we hosted Ashlee and Mike's Inflatable Waterslide Party (sponsored by Rob...and he doesn't even know it). That's right, grown adults with no children rented a waterslide for our backyard to celebrate our nation's birth...what's more American than that?? We had a large time with a good gathering of friends all acting a-fool and other than a little mud in the backyard afterwards, it went through without much incident (and without any major injuries).
|We stole our party theme from comedian, Greg Warren, but gave him credit, of course.|
|"One person at a time", "only go down legs-first" and many other rules were broken |
that fine Independence Day in our backyard.
(Editor's note: We liked the water slide so much we rented it again during a visit by our niece, Ella, on August 8th)
