Road Trip

Hello! Remember me? I have been a horrible blogger:( But I am back and for the one or two of you that may still check this from time to time here is a long picture post of our trip to the East Coast! We headed off for our 2400 mile round trip vacation the beginning of October and our first stop was Atlanta, Georgia.

Blake cozy with his blankie, binky and Elmo DVD! We could not of made it without those three items plus his new favorite obsessions...his Backhoe, Bulldozer and Big Truck (Dump Truck)!

We had a yummy dinner at out favorite restaurant in downtown Atlanta!

Then the next day before leaving Atlanta, my sweet hubby took me to Ballard! It was fun to see the beautiful stuff in person, not just in the catalog:)

On our way out we drove thru some amazing neighborhoods with beautiful, southern homes! One of my favorites!
Next stop Myrtle Beach, South Carolina...

We were there for about 5 days and had a great time just the three of us!
The weather was perfect for playing in the sand, but a little chilly for swimming!

The resort we stayed at had an indoor water park...which Blake loved:)

We ate at some fun restaurants!

And spent more time enjoying the beach.

Our last day we went to the Aquarium and saw some amazing fish! God sure is creative:)

They had a pirate exhibit and I meet a few of the shipmates!

I held some type of crab! Aren't you proud?

I just love that sweet, serious face!

Then we ate at the Hard Rock Cafe...
Walked around Broadway at the Beach...

Rode a Carousal...
And had some yummy ice cream:)

Then off to pick my parents up at the airport in Wilmington and head to our final destination...Topsail Island, NC!

The weather the rest of our trip was cool and rainy, but that did not stop Mike from getting in some surfing!

And walks on the beach!

The reason we planned this trip was to go to my cousin, Stephan's wedding and see my moms side of the family that lives in Minnesota and Nebraska. It had been over 6-7 years since I had seen my cousins and it was so great to catch up and spend a few days together! (The bride is from North Carolina so that is why we all met there for the big day!)

Fun at the Crab Shack for the rehearsal dinner:)

It was raining the day of the wedding so the beach wedding was moved inside, but it was still beautiful and it all worked out!

~The Bride and Groom-Rhianna and Stefan~

Blake loved playing/dancing with Ara (my cousin- Jeremy's daughter)
~My Sweet Grandma-Dorothy~

~ My parents~

We had a great trip and made lots of fun memories!
----So I plan on playing catch up on my blog this week, so keep checking back for new posts:)
