A Little Getaway to Wilmington, NC

This past weekend my dad, Isabelle and I took a little trip to North Carolina.  My dad grew up in Wilmington and most of his family is still there.  The last time I had gone there I was pregnant with Isabelle, so I was long overdue for a trip there.  It also helped that we found cheap tickets directly to Wilmington, only $19 each way!!!  That was a deal we couldn't pass up. And with that we were off....

This was Isabelle's 11th and 12th time on a plane, but amazingly, the first time I have had anyone with us on the plane.

While in NC, Isabelle finally got to meet my Granddaddy Buck.  It was a very special moment when he first met her.  He kept saying he waited a long time to meet her.  I wish it hadn't taken me so long to get up there.  

An interesting discovery: looking at this picture I can finally see where Isabelle gets her face shape from.  She has my granddad's exact cheeks, chin, and jaw line.  When Isabelle was first born Charles said he thought she looked like my granddad, but it wasn't till I saw them together that I realized he was right.
I love this face!

Two of my cousins both had babies since I saw them last.  I finally got to meet little Roman and Hailie.

Two of the nights we were there we stayed at my Uncle Mike and Aunt Kathy's home.  They invited all the family over for a nice big dinner on Friday night.  It was so great to all be together and for everyone to be able to meet my little princess.  After everyone was gone we of course watched the UNC game.  Go HEELS!!!  What can I say, you can't help being a fan when you grow up with a Tar Heel Alumni.  I think my dad is the biggest fan I know!

4 generations


Lots of love!

We had a wonderful visit with everyone and loved being able to travel with my dad.  It was great to have Isabelle really get to know my dad better as well as the rest of the family. Hopefully we will make it back to NC soon!
