If you missed Day 1 of our trip read here.

Day 2 of our trip to the North Georgia Mountains was filled with seeing the train leave, a “Farmer’s Market,” walking around Downtown Blue Ridge, a parade, visiting Mercier’s Orchards, lots of good food, and hanging out around the cabin.

After the parade we went over the playground area and let the kids run off some energy.

After a wonderful lunch and a much needed nap, Rob, Maria, and I went over to the Mercier Orchards. We could have broken the bank there. Everything so fresh and sweet smelling. Yum!

For dinner, Rob and I cooked Bowties with Chicken and Italian Sausage. Yum! Here they are before we mixed the 2 together.

The kids jumped in the hot tub that we had bumped way down, so that it became the cool tub.
