In my mind I'm goin' to Carolina...

We had a really great weekend in Asheville. We stayed at a nice little cottage which the girls LOVED!
We ate great food - Rosetta's, The Lucky Otter, Diggables - went to great parks with friends, and attended Sunday servcies at Holy Trinity Orthodox Church. That was the first Greek Orthodox service either of the girls has been to, and Nutmeg in particular really loved it. She said it was the most beautiful servcie she had attended. Their liturgy and ours are so similar that even without knowing Greek, we felt right at home. An elderly lady sat near me, and frequently turned to smile and pat the girls. We all look forward to visiting that parish when we can get back to Asheville.
My little Chipmunk is really growing up. She will be 5 in less than 2 months. I am officially changing her blog name to Buttercup - Princess Buttercup. She is the only little blond in the family, and she loves placing a buttercup under someone's chin to see if they like butter. (If there is a yellow reflection under your chin, it means you like butter!) She also can quote most of the movie The Princess Bride! So, Gentle Readers, I give you - Princess Buttercup!

Sounds like a heavenly trip to Ashville. I'm originally from NC, so I'm sweetly prejudice, but I think there's a peacefulness around the mountains, don't you? What wonderful names for the restaurants. Princess Buttercup sounds like the perfect name for your darling girl who is really growing up. :) Hugs, Deb

Your girls are beautiful, and that trip looks amazing!! My family and I so need to get away from life. We won't go on our big family vacation until September, but we are hoping for some smaller trips before then.
I have one daughter and two sons. I have always wished that I could have had one more girl...so regret that Madison doesn't have a daughter. It has, though, made the two of us very close. Your girls are lucky to have one another!
