Two Saturdays ago, we celebrated my stepson's birthday. We don't have him on his birthdays for most years, so we do a celebrate on the Saturday closest to his birthday.
We were suppose to go hiking for his birthday, but due to a miscommunication, we went to Howard's Knob Park for his birthday. As you can see in the picture below, Howard's Knob is the highest park in the town of Boone.
My kids are rock climbers, so they enjoyed climbing all the rocks that were in the park. They even scared some of the adults that were with us being on ledges so far up, but I have learned to just not watch them.
Mark really liked playing on the rocks.
It happen to be peak weekend up here, so the colors were unbelievable.
Afterwards, we went out to eat and then have cake at home. Ben wanted a lemon cake with lemon icing and mint chocolate chip ice cream. It was sour! He thought it was good though.
After that, Ben wanted to go to Tweetsie Railroad for their Ghost Train. It was a cool night, so the kids had to modify their costumes.
