thanksgiving at biltmore.

hope you had a wonderful thanksgiving!! did you stay home with family or travel for the holiday? for thanksgiving this year, we all packed up and traveled to have thanksgiving at biltmore estate. it was such a lovely thanksgiving! we went along with my parents, brother and sister and stayed at the inn on the estate. the inn was already decorated for christmas (as well as the house) and it was gorgeous! the food was amazing, and it was totally a blessed trip. i took sooo many pictures and had to share some! on the way home, we stopped to visit the mountains and spent the day in the national park. it was definitely a lot of fun and leland was a little trooper traveling along with us!! (i bought a portable dvd player a month ago and it is so helpful! he loves, loves, loves watching the wiggles. his fav!) here are a few pictures from our trip….there are a lot! the first few are all from the inn where we stayed…

the house!

we took a rooftop tour on…well, the roof! and it was a little scary….and leland had to be escorted but the views were amazing!

my sister, mom, and i!

hahaha…jay being his usual self..

my little brother and sister are growin up so quickly…crazy how time flies!

little leland and his bear. he is holding that bear in almost every picture….he takes it everywhere, he loves it!

Love your photos. They’re breathtaking. My parents actually visited the Biltmore Estate when we lived in the States. I was too young at the time, but I’d love to see it.

Your photos take my breath away…seriously gorgeous! How do you get amazing photos that YOU ARE IN? I need your tips :)

Oh my! These are amazing. I’ve always wanted to visit the Biltmore! We almost went there for our honeymoon, but ended up choosing a more tropical location. Now I am really itching to go!

I adore the idea of traveling to some place beautiful like this for Thanksgiving. Never thought of doing something like that, but it’s an awesome idea :)
