EAST COAST : : NORTH CAROLINA 3

Zack, the girls and I had the privilege of meeting up with some of my favorite people in the entire world Wednesday evening! The kind of people you can’t help but smile the instant they cross your mind.

They chose the place – and for those of you who don’t know, choosing where to eat is the greatest gift you could ever give to me – seriously!

We got there early…this is how we passed the time. 🙂 There were at least twenty of these bad boys.

Almost got ahold of this crisp new crayon…

This is the look (“The Candace”) Amelia gave Eddie for a solid chuck of our visit – as you can see from the photo before this one, she warmed up to him eventually.

I used to babysit this gorgeous girl when I was her age and she was Penelope’s age!

I wish we could move back here if for no other reason than to hangout with this family full-time!

We love you O’Hayre’s! I hope we can visit you again soon.

Here are some photos from the Canon I completely forgot about. Photos of our trip from Tennessee to Charlotte and bits of the girls lounging around before we leave the house to visit friends.

We passed through beautiful towns, full of character, bridges and tons of lakes and rivers!

It has rained off and on our entire trip. Just sprinkles. Most of our journey through the mountains looked like the photo above. Zack and I could never tire if trees, blue sky, and mountainous views!

This baby doll has been amazing! She is patience, pleasant, and so so happy!

Our mornings have been very laid back. Penelope is enjoying cartoons before she gets ready for the day, and Amelia enjoying discovering every nook and cranny of Aunt Sarah’s house. Mama ‘enjoys’ running after her exclaiming “NO! NOT THAT!” multiple times in a thirty minute period. Never gets old.

It just dawned on me that I might have to take advantage of having a Chick-fil-a so close – off to find me some breakfast!!
