Our mountain getaway for the weekend - thanks Kessingers!!!

Every other year the Lineberry family takes a big family vacation. The in-between years the guys and the girls separate and do their own trip! Since it was Steve’s turn to plan the “Guy’s Trip”, he decided to take Uncle Brent, Uncle Dave, and PaPa Joe to one of his favorite places – the New River Gorge in West Virginia. They spent a day climbing, a day fly-fishing, and a day rafting the Gauley River. They had quite an adventure and you can read about it on Daddy’s blog.

Happy Hikers!

Wilson Creek Trailhead

This is the first year that there have been any little guys in the picture, and considering that one hasn’t had any solids yet, and the other just started them a month ago, it seemed like a better idea for the little guys to stick with the girls for this trip. We figured they could maybe go with the big boys on the next trip (as long as they don’t go rafting…). The boys took off around 6 am Friday morning, but the wives and little guys took our time getting out the door.

Kissing Cousins :)

After the little guys had woken up from their first nap, we loaded up the car, and Mommy, Canaan, Aunt Megan, Cousin Eli, and BeBe headed west to the mountains. BeBe had arranged for us to stay at a friend’s mountain house for the weekend! Canaan was so very excited because not only does he love the mountains, but he hadn’t seen his cousin since July 4th!

Having fun on the porch together!

We spent Friday afternoon and evening settling in. Canaan and Eli both enjoyed nursing together in the big rockers on the back porch that overlooked a creek and a sea of rhododendrons!

Sharing toys :)

On Saturday morning we headed out early to hike along the Tanawha Trail from the Wilson Creek Overlook to Rough Ridge. We got some gorgeous views of Grandfather Mountain. The weather was perfect, and Canaan enjoyed grabbing a nap in his new carrier, the Ergo. Canaan and Eli decided that they might impress the ladies more if they dressed a like, so they opted for their green “Best Friends” shirt, and some jeans.

Wonder of wonders both babies went down for a nap at the same time Saturday afternoon, so BeBe volunteered to hang out with the little guys while Aunt Megan and Mommy headed to the Osh Kosh Outlet for a quick shopping spree – we came back with overalls galore!!!

A quick pre-dinner dip in the creek by our house!

Since our hike had been so successful the day before, we decided to try for another one the next day! This time Canaan decided to try riding on Mommy’s back in the Ergo, and he definitely dug it!

Canaan couldnt wait to go hiking again on Sunday!

This trail went along a river until it somewhat disintegrated, and we took to rock-hopping our way up the river! Mommy had lots of fun scrambling up the rocks, but Canaan must have been unimpressed because he slept through the majority of it!

We wanted to get back on the road again at a good time for the little guys to take a nap, so we left right after lunch. The big boys rolled in around 7 or so, and we had everyone together (except for Uncle Dave’s fiancee :( ) for the first time!

The next day Daddy had to go to Charlotte, and Grammy came to pick up Mommy and Canaan to take us back to her house.

Canaan spent the day showing Grammy and Paw Paw how good he was doing at sitting up, and also trying to sneak some touches on Grammy’s kitties (who did NOT want to be touched…)

A happy BeBe with the two little guys!

We finally got back home in Raleigh late Tuesday night. We plan to rest up over the next couple of days and catch up on laundry and some household chores. Canaan has his big 6 month check-up on Thursday, and will start solid foods this weekend! He cannot wait to try out some new foods, and will be sure to write all about it next week!

Waiting for the Daddies to come back!
