After 2 days of long drives, we’re finally here in North Carolina. Not much too say about the drive down except it was really, REALLY long. We stopped for the night in DC (where we got a free upgrade to a huge suite at our hotel, sweet!) and took a really early morning walk to see some of the memorials and monuments. The girls were troopers during the 10+ hour drive, but we were all sick of the car and our bodies were stiff from sitting far too long by the very end. The house we rented for our family reunion (on Mark’s dad’s side) is ridiculous. You know in the Real World how all the cast members get to the house in the first episode and explore the house? Yeah…it’s a little bit like that.
