big cedar [dos]

Day 2 we got a little pooling in, in the early morning!
After heading in after lunch to give R the chance to rest up before heading out again...I was trying to take a selfie to send to my mom in China when I opened up and drank this DC, R just couldn't stand the fact that I was taking a selfie without him and ran clear across the room to jump in the picture with me!
Not taking a nap like he was supposed to be doing with Poppy...
...and then 30 minutes before we need to leave, this is what he does!

Our evening was spent at Big Cedar's new addition, Top of the Rock.  You have to get in the car to get there, but it's just around the corner!  No more than a 5 minute drive!

While they were redoing this area, they found a cave...and have since turned it into an attraction site.  The golf cart cave tour had only been opened 2 weeks when we were they and our tour was guided, but I heard them say when they got the proper railing up it would be an "on your own" type deal.

It was a very neat experience and I'm so glad that we got to experience it!  Luckily the weather was so nice that week...and since we were moving, it kept things breezy!

Inside the cave...

Love these two!  R got mud in his shoe so he took it off!  Ha!
Coming out of the cave...and headed over the bridge!
They let us stop and take pics at this beautiful view.

Then it off to the literal "top of the rock" for dinner reservations!  (This is the view of the practice course...it is all artificial, including the "sand")
The menus were made out of old wood, and were bond together with a strip of leather...VERY unique!

R took this of us!
Surprisingly...everything was Mexican--I stayed with what I knew and went with the fajitas!  Can't go wrong there, and I was right!! ;)

Then we were off to tour the rest of the place...including the cutest little chapel! 

Out of the bottom floor another restaurant is this beautiful infinity pool!   
This is a little bit hard to see...but there is a little bitty ole cabin in the middle of those trees--nothing special really.  We couldn't figure out what it was, so we finally asked someone.  It is an old civil war cabin that has been turned into the "Honeymoon Suite" for couples that get married in the chapel!  Craziness right!?
Looking back at everything from the chapel...
The chapel wasn't quite complete yet...but they still let us in, but only to view this floor (there are 2 or 3 OTHER floors, down below)...yes that back wall is glass to be able to see the beautiful view!  It was breathtaking, and nothing like I've ever seen before!

I think this outdoor area next to the infinity pool (that has doors that go directly inside) would make a fantastic reception area for guests after attending a wedding in the chapel!
We came back to Big Cedar before sunset...and noticed something was going on!--They had smores going for everybody!  They handed us the cutest little package of two graham crackers, a marshmallow, a Big Cedar chocolate bar and a wipe and we were good to go!<<--this another="" felt="" font="" i="" is="" isney="" it="" reason="" thought="" very="" world-ish="">
Somebody LOOOVES their smores!

I'm gonna try and get the rest of our trip up on the blog this week, so stay tuned!
