highlands, nc: 2

Tuesday morning we went to the Highlands Botanical Gardens. Our favorites were the beautiful lake covered in lily pads, blackberry bushes, gigantic turtle and the nature center. Micah loved touching all of the bones, skins, shells, nuts, leaves, etc that they had on display. I really wanted to take him back during nap time one day but we never had the chance.

That afternoon we headed out to Sliding Rock. Seriously fun! I didn't slide for fear I would fall in a hole or do something else to my unborn child. Jess was braver than I was and tried it a couple times anyway. She's braver than I am period though! Micah and Connor took turns sliding down with Zach and they both LOVED it! I had just as much fun watching as they did sliding. Between turns I made sure whoever wasn't going had fun throwing rocks in the water, digging in the sand and of course taking pictures of the sliders. Definitely want to go there again on our next visit!
