This past weekend we celebrated Kevin's birthday by heading out to the mountains. We couldn't have felt farther away from the city, but in actuality, we were only an hour and a half away.
Yes, even Oscar got to getaway to the mountains for the weekend. Our first floor room was comfortable & beautiful.
We were lucky enough to have the entire B&B to ourselves for the weekend.
Breakfast Saturday morning was delicious. Ham/Green Onion/Monterey Jack quiche, Lemon poppy muffins, fresh fruit, coffee & OJ. This hearty breakfast fueled us until late in the afternoon.
After breakfast, we had plans to go mountain biking in Gambrill State Park, but unfortunately, it was much colder than we expected. Instead, we started the morning with a hike on the Appalachian Trail with Oscar.
It was a bright morning and we decided to head towards Georgia in hopes that it would get warmer as we walked. ;)
After Oscar was tired out, we dropped him off at the house and headed over to Cunningham Falls State Park.
We decided to take the Cliff Trail and after we made it up the short climb, we stopped for the standard couple shot.
We discovered the falls in no time and took some pictures before climbing up the rocks.
Kevin decided to scale the rock wall, which was funny to see.
I made one failed attempt to make it up the same route, before finding an easier way up. After more exploring/hiking, we headed back to the inn for some relaxation before dinner.
Carriage House Inn is on our list of possible caterers, so it was a perfect opportunity to give them a try before our official tasting.
The next morning, our breakfast included one of the Inn's specialties - Caramelized bacon. (The recipe is listed on their website). It had that awesome sweet & salty combo.
Served with a belgian waffle. We were officially stuffed.
It was a quick drive back into Baltimore where we completed our P90x week with some KenpoX. Definitely needed to work off the bacon & belgian waffle!
