Our Sunday Drive

On Sunday, April 20th, Jason and I decided to take a trip across the mountains to explore. We took a back road from Bristol, 421, and took a WINDING trip through the top of the mountains to Boone, North Carolina. We passed through Mountain City on the way and decided to keep going once we saw the Boone signs. When we were in Boone we decided to stop at our favorite coffee shop, which we discovered last October when we visited my parents at thier cabin in Blowing Rock. It's called BeansTalk - this is me, after enjoying a YUMMY white chocolate mocha latte!

This is Jason, talking a rest, along the sidewalk downtown...

On our way back, we saw a cute little puss near our house - I also wanted to show you the beautiful pink flowering trees that we are seeing everywhere right now...

Have a great week!

Trip to Gastonia, North Carolina

On Saturday, April 12th, Jason and I decided to drive a couple of hours across the mountains to visit my Great Uncle Glenn and Aunt Shirley, in Gastonia, NC! We had a wonderful visit with them and really enjoyed the day! These are some pictures from our trip!
We stopped at an "overlook" on the way across the mountains to take some pictures, but it was so dreary and cold that the landscape was not very pretty - so instead I give you "Us" :)

We went to lunch with Uncle Glenn, Aunt Shirley, my dad's cousin, Ann, and her husband, Doug. This is a picture of me with Ann and Doug at Panera Bread!

This is a picture of Jason and I with Uncle Glenn and Aunt Shirley!

We miss you all!

Springtime in Florida

After a busy March, I was able to take a relaxing vacation in Orlando, Florida! While Jason wanted to come with me, he did not have enough vacation saved up since beginning his new job. I had a wonderful trip with my family and even got to sneak down to Fort Lauderdale for a day to see my best friend, Misty, who just had her second baby in February!

These are pictures of me and Misty with her newest son, Landon!

We also got to see my Uncle Bill and Aunt Bonnie. This is a picture of me with my parents and my aunt and uncle.

We all took a trip to New Smyrna Beach (my favorite beach) on Monday. After eating lunch at JB's we went to the National Coast - which is a National Park - and enjoyed the wildlife - here are a few pictures from our trip to the beach...

Yes, I was actually that close to that nasty armadillo and I touched it! I was so excited by this that I had to call Jason and tell him all about it - thus the phone :)

I hope you all enjoyed and are doing well!

Happy Birthday, Bubbie!

For those of you who don't know - it's Diablo's 3rd Birthday today! Unfortunately he is very sneezy because of all the blooms outside so I don't think he's enjoying it very much!
