Biltmore Estate

The other day we went to the Biltmore to walk around the gardens and visit the farm on the property. We bought season passes before we moved and this was our second visit (1st visit we toured the home). It's so nice to just be able to go for an hour or two with Finn and take it all in. The grounds are enormous and they have lots to offer.

All Finnegan really wants to do is run around though...so we let her.




We checked out the Conservatory- she was kind of mad at me for putting her in her stroller;)

The big hit of the day was the farm- we had it just about to ourselves and the lady who worked there was amazing telling us all about the animals and even bringing out a 6 day old goat!!!

Oops!

On Saturday Finn and I spent the day with a good friend from college and her daughter. We had such a nice time catching up and watching our two girls play. They are 3 weeks apart and had so much fun at the park....

Unfortunately, they had a little accident but no worries, no tears were shed and all was okay!

My wild women going down the slide!

And my friend was able to slow the video down and capture the pic of Finn mid-way...






I've warned her she needs to stop sucking in that bottom lip or else it'll stick.

Nothing much to report

We've been busy with lots of visitors over the last week and it's been fun showing them a little bit of our town and hitting up a few local restaurants which has been a treat for us. Finn has also been teaching everyone all her new tricks.

Finn now understands how to joke around and will do funny things to get us to laugh. She just dropped her morning nap so around 10ish everyday we have to get out of the house or else she gets super fussy...today we just walked the trail behind our apartment, yesterday we went on a mini hike and let her run around the playground and shoot hoops with daddio, the day before we went to a shoe outlet and j crew outlet (can't wait to take Johanna to both!!)...You get the idea, nothing overly exciting just living life!

Here are a few pics of our silly girl...

Best Friends!

Finnegan being silly and trying to make us laugh!

We drove along the Blue Ridge Parkway the other day and it was pretty gorgeous. i absolutely love the fall.
We started with a little picnic...

A little rolling...

Goodbye Rat Tail!

I have finally won the battle. Gabe allowed me to finally cut Finn Marie's rat tail (side mullet) and I have to be honest it looks super cute. My girl is growing up...first haircut and she was great- all she needed was a lollipop and her Aunt Katie to keep her still.

Bubbles!
