Gingerbread houses at The Grove Park Inn

Last week we met up with some friends from the Asheville Unschooling group and went to The Grove Park Inn in Asheville to see their yearly Gingerbread contest. This was our third year going, so I guess you could call it a yearly tradition for us to do. Isabelle did a house with some girls from church two years ago and one a ribbon and last year all the kids had helped build one with other homeschoolers. We love visiting The Grove Park Inn it's very beautiful. The views are amazing of downtown Asheville from the top level of the inn.
