North Carolina

We took off labor day weekend for Charlotte, NC to visit Garrett and Val!! :)   We stopped at a rest stop in SC and saw this beautiful lake and had to jump.  I love the carolina's their lakes are so pretty!
 Just to let you all know this is not an actual butt, this is a water tower, disguised as a peach.  We call it The Peach Butt.
 Charlotte was hosting the DNC in a few days and we randomly got stopped and asked a few questions.  I wanted to laugh so hard in this picture!! SO awkward!!
 Funny group shot
Val and I with the biker gang!  The cops were everywhere we went in Charlotte!!
Visited the cemetery, also I love the cemeteries down here!! So much bigger and non-traditional, to the West. 
They were my practice couple with my new lens. :) Thanks guys!
 Leaving rainy downtown!
 Sunday we had lunch at a local park.
 Found this cute critter.

 Brad and I went walking at the local park.  So GORGEOUS!
 I love Georgia!
My uncle Dean, my moms brother, was recently diagnosed with a brain tumor.  So for the surgery to remove the tumor he had to shave his head.  My mom and all her sisters decided to get bald caps to show their support for him, since all the guys were shaving their heads.  I think the pictures turned out awesome, and super funny!  You can read more about his story here .  They are an AMAZING family!!


Once school was done we packed up and left for Colorado!!!  We had such an amazing time with Bryan and Jen and the kids!!  THank you SO much you guys for such a wonderful week!! We are so glad we were able to make it out there for a week with them.  Pictures don't even show half of the fun we had!
