The Greenbrier Family Vacay

We had so much fun this past weekend at the Greenbrier with all of Austins family. We arrived Friday around noon and Peyt, Peyton and Aus headed to the links to play 18. While they were busy swinging their clubs all the girls headed to lunch at Drapers restaurant then walked around the hotel shops a bit and headed to the pool for a few cocktails.
Friday night we all went to dinner at Sam Snead's restaurant and boy was it good! I had the most amazing chicken rotisserie I've ever put in my mouth and Aus said his steak was in his top 5. 

Saturday we played around the resort, shopped, swam, ate lunch by the pool, went to the tea part and ate a yummy spaghetti dinner + fresh mojitos in our cottage.

We headed to the new casino Saturday night and had a super fun time! I played roulette, per the norm, and walked away with over $400 in the black. (insert huge smiley face)
Our fam turned in early so we made a few new friends. They were the time...
Cha Ching!

Sunday morning we woke up, much too early for our late night, and went on the infamous Bunker tour. I don't have any pictures because you aren't allowed to take cameras on the tour but I'll sum it for you. Basically, for about 30 years The Greenbrier had one of the worlds best kept secrets. There was an underground "Bunker" carved right out of the side of a mountain. This would be the hide out for the president and his cabinet members as well as the senators and congressmen should the US be under attack. This place was kept a total secret from all US citizens until it leaked in 1994, 30+ years after it was built. The bunker had a full hospital, dental office, food for 42 days, hundreds of beds and even a news reporting room so the president could still deliver the news and it appear as though he was right in the white house. It was pretty fascinating to learn about. You can learn more about it here.
