This summer was such a treat to go on my first trip to the east coast! Before this trip I had only been to 6 states and this trip added 7 more! We started the first week of our trip out on the beautiful North Carolina outer banks!
We had quite the excitement when they found two dead bodies on the beach in front of our house. It turns out two men got in a knife fight and killed each other. So we decided to rent boats since the beach was quite full that morning. This is where my mother-in-law decided to tube and broke her shoulder. The incredible woman was so tough and put on such a good face for the rest of the trip. It wasn't until we got home that we found out it was so bad that she had a plate and ten screws put in her shoulder! Yikes!
After spending a wonderful week on the beach, we drove up to Washington, D.C. where we stayed for a few days. It was such an incredible place to be. I loved walking up and down the mall and going in to each historical place. The buildings have so much detail and hard work put into each one of them. Every single monument is just gorgeous. I could have spent weeks there!

From Washington, D.C. we drove to Pittsburgh to take Candace and Brigham home. We got to stay in their cute home and see what life is like for them. We explored the city just a tiny bit and I fell absolutely in love with Pittsburgh!! It is a goal of mine to live there at some point in my life. Pittsburgh is such a cute old city with so much detail and history to it. We went through the Cathedral of Learning and I can not believe people are lucky enough to go to school there. One of my favorite parts of the trip was going to a Pirates game in Pittsburgh. Their stadium is beautiful as it sits on the river and gives one of the greatest views of the city while enjoying a baseball game. It was perfect. Needless to say- Stanton and I are now big Pirates fans and can't wait to move there someday!
|Yes, we both have Pirates shirts on :)|
It was such a fun trip and a much needed break from work and life. I'm ready to go again!
