North Carolina Tour Part Two

So after Wilmington, we headed up north to Raleigh where we met mom and dad. They drove out from Knoxville - about 5 1/2 hours away. There were some really cute neighborhoods there, but the downtown seemed a little sleepy. I don't think we were there at the most happening time. The next two days we stayed in Charlotte. The first day it rained like crazy and they were even calling for a tornado! Mom was a little nervous driving around. Luckily, the next day was really nice and we could wear our short sleeves and sandals. We had no agenda at all so we just drove around and looked at different parts of town. There were so many cute neighborhoods and houses. I really loved Myers Park - an older neighborhood with amazing tree lined streets and gorgeous homes! I was in love! The great thing about Charlotte, is it is a bigger city which is great for business, and also it is only 3 hours to the beach and 3 1/2 hours to Knoxville! Sounds ideal!

So many new, fun pictures. Looks like you two are still up to no good, traveling the world. Okay, so really I'm just jealous of all the fun you are having. The south-east states is the one area I have not visited and North Carolina is the one place I want to go. Not fair!
