Am i MIA.....


Just made a quick trip to .....

Tweetsie Railroad

For those of you who don't a western theme amusement park in the Blowing Rock area....

It's's's's corny.....the acting is strictly amature.....the train is a real steam engine......the food is good.......the ski lift is still scary.....the kids love the rides and the arcade.....can't miss the Fudge Shop or the Funnel Cake's fun....

The female child and the grands (including the grand dog) came in Saturday night and Tweetsie seemed the best why to spend a weather perfect family Sunday......



  1. Looks like you had fun creating memories with the grandsons.

  2. How wonderful you have family in. It looks like everyone enjoyed themselves! Glad your weather cooperated too!

  3. Looks like you and the family picked a great place to have a load of fun!

  4. Ah yes, Tweetsie! Before there was a thing called 'Theme Parks' there was Tweetsie and our local cowboy, Fred Kirby. Fred and his homey singing, was the thrill of the NC mountains. Before we knew of Disney on the East coast our kids yelled for tweetsie, the train robberies, the bank robberies the good guys winning etc.
    Fred K. auditioned with Roy Rogers for the Singing cowboy part, came in second, but lost to Roy. That didn't matter here Fred was the hero.
    Thanks for the post. NOW report to work!!

  5. What a fun time y'all had! I've never been but have always wanted to go.

  6. What I'm loving about blogging is I find out about places like Tweetsie. The name just cracks me up! The pictures are priceless.

  7. Nothing like taking your grands someplace they like.

  8. Funny photo! I had to look at it awhile to really see it for what it is! LOL We have an Oklahoma version of Tweetsie called Frontier City. It's so hokie.

    Glad you had fun with your family.


  9. looks like loads of fun too me!!!


  10. I used to work at Tweetsie! :)
