Photos from Biltmore

My cousin, Jamie, has posted about our visit to Biltmore Estate in more detail than I have time to manage today. She has great photos, too. See her post here.

Cullen took photos everywhere. Here he tries to capture the rainbow in the fountain spray.


I'll just share a few of my favorite photos. Here is Cullen and his cousin, Kathyrn...


Learning to orient a map and use a compass...





Hands-on demonstration of the way a system of pulleys and ropes can help a couple of kids move a thousand-pound log...




Cullen takes a turn at the butter churn...




Then gives a wink of approval for the finished product!




The gate into the walled garden at sunset...



I'd love for this to become an annual trip!

Great trip. We've been wanting to go there but I didn't think it would interest the kids. You've made me rethink that option.

Hi, Jonnia - love the pictures of your Biltmore trip! I have been to Asheville several times, but never to the Biltmore. I would really like to go!

Cullen has beautiful eyes. :-)
