Ross visit and the Biltmore

      Well, I am a little out of date as far as posting goes *oops*. We just started school last Monday and getting into routine hasn't left time for much else, so this got pushed down to the bottom of the list! Ok, here goes.     
     The day after the Civil war Reenactment our friends the Rosses came up to visit us. *much excitement*.  Having left at 4:00 am they arrived about 2:30 pm and we got right down to the fun!! We have this huge black tube that we get inside and roll each other down the hill. Well, we were all a little (ok a lot) sore the next day, but it was totally worth it!! And of course, what would a visit be without a couple hundred crazy/goofy photos? Ok, maybe that is a bit dramatic but anyway...... While they we were here we took them to the Biltmore (if you have never been, well, you should go) and they were totally amazed with the size of this incredible house! Getting caught up in all the excitement I forgot to take a picture of the front of the house so that you could see what I was talking about. *oops*. Delany will post some later I am sure :-)
Ok, so time for the pictures!

I told myself I wouldn't post this one, but I just had to. We did a Romeo and Juliet
play and we didn't have a boy, so guess who got elected? Thats right, yours truly..
So, we whipped out a brown eye liner pencil and drew on a mustache and bushy eye
brows. Oh great.

Ok, so those are the pictures we took at the house, here are some Biltmore pictures.
The amazing gardens, some of them anyway!

A beautiful rose!

Messing around in the gift shop. Lovely

All of us piled on a wagon.

A picnic at a very picturesque place on the Biltmore grounds.

The whole group, minus me :-)

So, that concludes our visit with the Rosses!
