Belle Chere

I have been looking forward to going to Belle Chere in Asheville for about 5 years now.  I used to go every year starting from when I was in college on.  Well, Belle Chere is held the last weekend of July and guess whose birthday always fall on that same weekend in July?  waaah… So, since this year we had 5 weekends in July, we were able to have Skylar’s birthday party the weekend before, yaaaay!  I will say this, when we went in the past, we um stayed out much much later. Winking smileThis year we brought Skylar with us, so he could see all the hooplah that I‘ve been raving about.

I think he could be a over acting here, but maybe he was just as excited as we were.

It was HOTTT!  My thinking was since we were in the mountains, that the heat would not be as bad.  I was wrong.  Skylar is drinking a bahama mama I think in a beer cup, but it’s non alcoholic of course.

The doggies cooled off this way.  It was cool to see them jump in the water after the balls.  There were a lot of dogs.

It’s definitely a different trip this time around, because things changed a lot, but you still have the good ol people of Asheville that I love to be around.  You have all walks of life there and no one judges.  I love that.
