#roadtripwithbaby recap

For those of you not following along last week, don't you worry. Here's a photo recap of our Southern road trip.

Driving through Indiana
First nap of the 11 hour drive
A foot is a great toy
Reading about how I can help Jo sleep better
Nick packed lunches. He's the best.
Party in the back seat
Jo really wanted to help drive
We made it to our cabin in Bryson City
Extremely happy to be out of the car

Jo was such a trooper!
Good morning! Notice the McDreamy hair...

Nick likes grits. Jo did not.
Just getting ready to hike in the Smokies

Nantahala Brewing - Nick was in heaven. Also very kid friendly.
Jo really wanted to watch the Bulls game

I've always wondered where the term "growler" came from
Sleepy girl

Honey badger don't care about naps
Lazy morning getting ready to head to Asheville

BBQ for lunch!!!
Apparently there is always a line at 12 Bones

Pulled pork is my fave
Just chillin' at the Thirsty Monk

Nick heard that it's the best beer bar in Asheville
Waiting for the food at Rosetta's Kitchen

We felt we had to balance out the bbq lunch with vegan peanut tofu and kale
Sunny Point Cafe has their own garden

Jo couldn't decide what to order

When I just wake up and don't want to talk to anyone, Nick calls that my sleep bubble. Jo has the same thing.
Happy to be with friends in Mooresville

Lazy butt
On the road to see Grandma Marilyn. Jo was so excited!

We made it! Grandma Marilyn couldn't wait to meet Jo.
They just love each other

Prezzies from Great-grandma Marilyn. Can you find Jo?
Nick as a baby. Jo totally has his smile and cheeks. She also gets the ear-grab from him too.

Everyone goes to IHOP for breakfast
We went to the outlet mall. We all got something. I scored these shoes.

Matching stripes
We played UpWords. I won, of course.

She does this to herself. Puts the blanket over her face and makes a weird heavy breathing sound. She loves it.
Beautiful day for a walk

Grandma's boat. Nick went for a row.
Then he went for a swim

Then he had a beer on the porch
Company came over for dinner and just loved Jo

We made sure to bring our own coffee...

Three generations
Saying goodbye

Back in the saddle again
We ate these on every road trip when I was a kid

We played with our food. My sister and I also played with gummi trolls, named them Chucky & Biff, and bit their heads off.
I was so bored. I just took a bunch of pics of Jo. She loves this brush. She chews on it and I call it "brushing her teeth."

Back in my favorite city! Hooray!

  1. Looks like a Snapfish book needs to be made. The photos are terrific and my baby is stunning. I'm coming soon, Johanna, I'm coming soon!
