After our meet-up in Tennessee, we headed back to North Carolina... and yep, you guessed it... Asheville. Not only because we love it there, but because we scheduled a mini-vacation from vacation for ourselves in Charlotte, and we couldn't think of a better place to hang out and "kill time".
As soon as we arrived we checked the "things to do" calendar, and found Stingy Jack's Pumpkin Patch which looked pretty fantastic. We were all in a pretty festive fall mood, and our whole family loves Halloween - so off we went.
|Jonah was interested in the paintball range, where you had the opportunity to shoot down "Bigfoot", who was running around the side of the hill and trying to hide (mostly in vain) behind large wooden cut-outs of trees and other woodland creatures.|
|We learned that our Jonah is pretty decent shot.|
|Of course our kids couldn't stay away from the empty stage with DJ music blaring Kids Bop. The stage was open in between acts for kids of all ages to jitter, jiggle, and shake.|
|Each kid was allowed to make one purchase while we were at Stingy Jack's. Jonah got "Boo", this interesting balloon creation. Maeryn bought herself a ride in a human-sized hamster-wheel.|
