Tweetsie Railroad

So the big surprise location was Boone, North Carolina. The main destination, however, was Tweetsie Railroad. Todd went to Tweetsie when he was little, and he wanted to take Liberty because she is going through a train phase. She liked the train, but the whistle scared the wits out of her (she doesn't like loud noises).

There's an outlaw on the train!

She also went on some amusement rides all by herself! This is very big, because we are going to Disneyworld in a few weeks and we weren't sure if she would 'get' it. She especially liked the airplanes and helicopters. She even went on the ferris wheel with daddy, who is terrified of heights (I know-and he's a pilot!).

Future pilot?

We stayed at a beautiful cabin up in the mountains. It was full of 'stuff'. Liberty kept busy the whole time walking around looking at everything.

And look what I found in the middle of nowhere--a quilt block painted on the side of a barn!

That's all for now! I will post more pictures later!

Oh hey, I have never heard of this train!

My DH is a train buff and it's his goal to ride every antique steam train in the US before he dies (That's a lot of trains!). We have three down and tons to go! We went to Ely Nevada last year to ride the train and it was awesome.

I am glad you had fun, it looks like it was an awesome trip, love the barn with the quilt block!

Can't wait to see some more pictures.
