Well, our fall break didn't go quite as planned but it turned out wonderful. We had an amazing trip to Washington DC planned for months. Ben (and the rest of us) was so excited. First there was a threat of a government shut down. Then a hurricane was headed straight for DC. And finally my dad got sick. We just knew this was not the right time for us to go. Thankfully when my dad started getting better, we decided to take a last minute trip. We did some quick research (really like 24 hours before we left) and decided to head up to Charlotte NC. We had never been there and it seemed like a great option. So we headed out Tuesday afternoon after some crazy last minute packing. This was totally out of my comfort zone. I am a super planned person especially when it comes to trips but I'm learning to be more low key and go with the flow these days.
We happened to be driving through Knoxville so we decided to stop and show the kids some of the places we enjoyed from our first years of marriage. Ben was excited to see a street named after one his favorite players - Peyton Manning!
