We had such a great time on vacation! It was very much needed and very much appreciated, I feel ready to tackle so many things now. I have so many photos and so much to share with you guys that I'm going to split it up in several posts.
Because Ormond is quite the drive (14 hours) we decided to leave a day early and split the drive in two. We ended up in North Carolina for the night on Lake Norman. We found a hotel room, had some dinner at a local place and then crashed for the night.
The next morning we got up and headed to some local places that my husband and father-in-law wanted to see. In case any of you didn't know, my husband is most definitely a motorhead. He doesn't really watch Nascar anymore, but he's really into NHRA stuff and loves talking about anything that has to do with the mechanics of a race vehicle.

We also visited Hendrick Motorsports, which did not interest me at all. Henry did enjoy climbing into the race seat and driving awhile (one of his favorite things). While the boys looked around we headed outdoors to enjoy some much needed sunshine.

Henry did not enjoy being in the car as long as we were, but we managed to find ways to entertain him. Playing peek-a-boo with his hat and blankets was probably his favorite. This hat took a beating the last week, he's become obsessed with it and refuses to go anywhere without it on.

Once in Florida, it's just one hop, skip and jump to where we were going. We didn't arrive in Ormond until later (10 pm) so we just grabbed dinner and then headed to our condo to unpack and get some sleep.
It's tradition for us to stop at the welcome center and grab a picture with the Florida sign. Here's a flashback photo to prove it, with a baby Henry on the way!
|Notice my husband's wonderful change in fashion style... he owns about 4 of the same shirts and wears them constantly. Drives me crazy!|
I'll post more about our vacation as I go through my photos. I hope you all have a wonderful Monday, mine will be spent unpacking, doing laundry and trying to get back into the swing of things!
