I'm starting to really learn more about my camera and the different settings it has. The last 6 months I've just been using all the auto settings, but I really want to learn more so I can take even better pictures. The last few days I've been using Roman to practice on while he is eating since it is the only time he will be sitting still more more than a few seconds!

So my plan was to give you guys a day by day description of our vacation...but I have given up that idea. First off...I would have to write a book...and secondly I started to write and I got to day three and I realized how boring my post was going to be. You don't want to know everything we did! So I'm just going to tell you the highlights...ahhh...that is much better. I won't have to write a novel and you won't have to read all the boring stuff! We visited three places while we were gone so I will give you the highlights from each state!

North Carolina:
-My mom, aunt, and I went to the local farmers market there and it was so magical! There was about a dozen or so local farmers set up selling their best produce and everything looked so delicious. As we were walking around in the beautiful sun, little puffs of dandelion were floating around in the air. It was at that moment I knew I wanted to move somewhere just like that.
-Roman had a fever for three days and the highest it got was 103.5
-We celebrated my father's 49th birthday
-We celebrated Father's day
-Roman overcame his fear of dogs

-We got to see my Nana, who just recently had knee surgery because she developed a staph infection from the new knee she got a few months ago and was in a rehab center.
-We got to visit my Papaw's grave and say our good-byes
-We tried the most amazing chocolate milk in the world that we lived off of the rest of the trip called Homestead Creamy Milk. A-Ma-Zing!

- We surprised my Grandfather for his 80th birthday
- Malachi and I celebrated our 2nd wedding anniversary. We went to The Cheesecake Factory (fried mac and cheese...need I say more?) and went to a rave. We won't even go into that one!
- Roman discovered he could run when we put him in the kiddie pool in his floaty...oh my gosh! I wish I could have gotten a video of it! It was SO cute!
- Spent a lot of time with family

We had a wonderful time but boy were we glad to get home! 2 weeks is a long time to be away from home! But it was great to see my family!
