Weekend in Blowing Rock

This past weekend we picked up my in-laws, Ronni & Steve at the airport and headed up to Blowing Rock for the weekend. We checked in to the Chetola Resort and Conference Center around 2:30. Mike hit the Appalachain Ski area that evening while I lounged at the condo watching The Devil Wears Prada (so adorable) and Ronni & Steve checked out the pub. Saturday morning Mike took Leah swimming in the indoor pool while I attended a yoga class. (How cool that this resort has all this stuff!) The we drove over to downtown Blowing Rock (love the town) and walked around and had lunch. Leah napped in the afternoon late then we had dinner at this yummy Italian restaurant named Pssghetti's. I had Fettucini Con Pancetta E Piselli (with pancetta and peas in a romano cream sauce) which was fabulous. Mike & Steve skied that night at Appalachian again (Mike tried ski boards) and I watched Monster-in-Law. On Sunday the plan was to head up to Beech Mountain so that Leah and Ronni could play in the snow for a bit but it rained ALL day! So we drove into Charlotte and went to the science museum Discovery Place. Leah really loved it this time. The last time she was there she was just learning to walk. Now she was running all over the place exploring. We had a great time. Then we dropped Steve off at the airport and headed home. Ronni is here until next Saturday! Yay!
