Father’s Day Weekend Recap: Visiting Waynesville, North Carolina

We had a great long Father’s Day weekend exploring Waynesville with Drew’s family.  We have a tradition of going to the mountains on Father’s Day weekend and again in the fall (usually one trip is tent camping).  Since we have a three month old, we stayed in a nice cabin on the top of a mountain that overlooked the valley.  It was amazing getting to sit in the hot tub with a glass of wine and enjoy the breathtaking view!

On Friday morning, we went on a short 2.5 mile hike with both kids!  I wore Walker in the K’tan and Drew had Reid in the Ergo.  It was amazing getting to enjoy nature with the boys.  That evening we went to Froglevel Brewery for a drink and music.  They have a great patio and lawn space that overlooks a creek.  Reid had a blast dancing to the music and playing with the rocks while we enjoyed each other’s company.

On Saturday morning, I explored the local farmers market with my mother in law and Reid.  Reid loved listening to the music (and dancing) and found many friendly dogs (and a fire hydrant of course!).  Later while the others went on another hike, Drew, the boys and I went to the local park to have some fun before nap time.  Following naps, we loaded up the car and headed to Boogum for a drink followed by pizza at Waynesville Pizza.

Prior to heading out on Sunday, we window shopped in downtown Waynesville before ending up at Boogum for a nice Father’s Day lunch.

We were so lucky to have great weather and enjoyed having the extra relaxing time together.  All and all, it was a great way to celebrate Drew’s 3rd Father’s Day and first as a father of two 🙂

    I just went to North Carolina for the first time two weeks ago to see family. I was in Greenville and thought the state overall was a beautiful place. I would be more than happy to go back to hike around like you and your family did!
