Road Trip!

We just returned from another relaxing, food filled, vacation with the Gray family in North Carolina!  As we are getting back into the swing of things, and I am slowly getting unpacked, I thought I would share a bit of our adventure....

The four of us loaded up the van and headed out for the beach around 3:30am.  Our boys don't actually sleep much in the van, but when it is dark they are at least quiet and ride nicely!  We stopped in Rio Grande, OH at the original Bob Evans restaurant for breakfast. 

The boys were super excited to 1) be out of the van and 2) that daddy was going to be with us for 9 whole days!!

Silly Babe!

Gramaw had sent some surprises with us for the trip....one for after breakfast, one for after nap and another one for Sunday morning after breakfast.  They were a big hit!

The boys were super excited to get some new toys and a snack, and we enjoyed using it as a bargaining tool!  We will definitely remember this trick for next year!!

We borrowed a few new movies from Uncle Zach and Aunt Emmy, and Karter couldn't wait until after breakfast to watch one!

Kado only watched maybe 10 minutes!

We made a stop on the Virginia "Welcome Center" for a picnic lunch.  We were all ready to stretch our legs....and stomachs!

The boys quickly discovered that feeding the birds was more fun...

Sorry Kado, the birds will not let you pet them!
We successfully made it to our hotel in High Point, NC, and were excited to meet up with the rest of our gang.  Check back last this week for our trip to the zoo, before our beach adventure!
