Fun Things We've Done In Boone This Week

This is our second full week in the mountains of Boone, NC, while our home in Charlotte gets some work done on it. I posted some sneak peeks that I was sent from Hudson Hardwoods last night ... I can't wait to see the floors in person because they look PERFECT. 

Boone is a lot smaller than Charlotte, so finding activities for the kids is just slightly more of a challenge, but we haven't run out of things to do yet! It's been a rainy week, especially in the afternoons, so we have tried to schedule an activity for each morning to dodge the sprinkles and showers.

Here's a peek at what we've done this week.

Monday morning we attended family storytime at the Boone library (free) and the theme was bears. Several books about bears were read by the sweet librarian, and we got to piece together the arms and legs on a bear body and then color it at the end. They also brought in a therapy dog at the end of storytime ... a beautiful Bernese Mountain dog!

Don't hate me for the photo above. You just have to laugh! I was literally the only mom there wearing makeup. All good though! I've met some really nice folks up this way. 

Tuesday morning we headed to The Children's Playhouse which I've blogged about before. It's $6/person (Charlotte gets in free, and yes, you pay for adults) and we had an awesome time there. They switch up the activities so every time we've been there, there have been different things to do.

My friend Katie suggested lunch at Boone Drug, so we went there on Tuesday afternoon upon leaving the Playhouse. Their grilled cheeses were on POINT!

Wednesday morning we went into Banner Elk and picked blueberries at the winery. It operates on the honor system ... just fill up a gallon jug as high as you'd like and slip a $10 bill in the metal box. Organic, delicious blueberries. Charlotte was happy as a clam in my stretchy knit carrier

This morning we need to make a Walmart run and I'm also on the hunt for a local thrift store that my mother-in-law said is a great one. I'll post any great finds on Instagram stories!


  1. I love watching your days on snap. You inspired me to keep getting out and finding new fun activities. It can be a LOT of work, but I know getting out and finding ANY activity out of the house makes for a happier me and Leo!
