North Carolina or Bust

Let me start out by saying sorry,  most of the pictures are blurry because they were taken on my phone . . . yep, we went on a long over due family vacation and NO ONE brought a real camera! :(

We hit the road Sunday afternoon at about 2pm for North Carolina!

We arrived at Grandma Julia's house at 2pm on Monday (exactly 24hrs later)

Monday night mom, Anna and I went over to my Aunt Lynnie's shop. She does permanent makeup (you can check her out on Facebook). Mom had her eyeliner done years ago and needed a touch up, Anna chickened out and I got my eyeliner tattooed on! In the picture below my eye is still pretty swollen and sore.

Tuesday night Grandma Julia had a family get together were we got to see some of our family we had not seen in YEARS!! Aunt Deborah fell in Love with Levi.

Nathan found a candy shop with the World's Largest Gummy Bear so he had to get a picture with it! 
It was 5lbs! :)

Thursday we drove another to 2hrs to Carolina Beach! It was Levi's first time and he LOVED it!

 Levi and Uncle Chris with his sand castle!

Friday night we had another family get together but this time it was with my mom's side of the family.

Saturday we started for home! This is just 1 of the many things we did to keep Levi entertained for the trip :)

We stopped in Gatlinburg, TN Saturday afternoon. 
We went to the Ripley's Aquarium and a Mirror Maze that night!

Sunday morning we got up and went to the Ripley's Believe it or Not Museum - Very Cool!

This was made of over 6,600 feet of Gum Wrappers and took 18 years to make!
After grabbing some lunch we jumped in the car for the LONG ride home.
We had a Great trip but I am also very happy to be home!
