We had a fabulous 4th of July in the mountains of North Carolina and I am so glad we made the 11 hour trek up there and back. Flying is such a hassle although driving is much more tiring, I think making a road trip was the way to go.
W had a ball-swimming at the lake, going on a hike, riding in the golf cart and hanging out at the inn and at Mimi and Papa's.
The highlight of the trip for all of us, I think, was at the Friday night barbecue where we saw the most beautiful fireworks while the symphony played. I never thought that fireworks could give me that much joy until I saw them through the eyes of William.
He took it very seriously when they played the Star Spangled Banner. Here he is with his hands over his heart.
