Our Family Vacation 2011 ~ Part 4

Tuesday, we set out for Mt. Jefferson State Natural Area to hike up and look over the city of West Jefferson, NC but first we stopped to eat lunch.

Here’s some of the gang while we were waiting for our food at Brickstone Pizza and Pasta.   The weather was so nice, we opted to eat outside on their patio area.


Abram says, “Yummy!”


The kids’ two pizzas

Rob and I got calzones.

(Caught me with my mouth full.)

After lunch, we drove up the mountain for a 2 mile hike up and around.

Yay!  We made it.  Ready for some water.


This was in someone’s yard when we left the mountain.


Another fun day and memories made for our family:)
