Vacation 2010; Driving, Family, SC

Truly the trip of a lifetime!!!
Sorry it has taken me so long to get an update out here on our trip. I really should have done it as soon as possible so that there wasn't any opportunity for anyone to put a negative spin on the great trip. However, I will do my best to give a great accounting of it, without letting certain people's view cloud the wonderful time we had.

Anyway, we left home on Friday, July 30 heading for Lexington, South Carolina. We had a nice, fairly uneventful drive with beautiful scenery as we drove through the mountains. The fact it rained most of the way didn't bother us a bit other than the pictures we attempted to take didn't always turn out.

We stopped Friday night in Kentucky then continued to SC. We arrived in Lexington and were greeted my my husband's Aunts, Uncles, Grandma, and cousins. All of whom I have never met and he hasn't seen for a very long time. They had a glorious feast for us that night and we really enjoyed the bonding and conversation.

It was great to meet most of my husband's family for the first time. They were all very great and I loved talking with them. His Uncle Tim and Aunt Becky were so nice to let us stay there for a couple of days so that we could bond. I really wish we could have spent more time together for we all got along amazingly. It was like we had known each other and saw each other frequently our entire lives. We will definitely all have to get together again sometime soon. Maybe next time up in our area.

The beautiful, young lady on the right is my husband's cousin and was in diapers the last time my husband saw this part of his family... Now she's a Southern beauty Queen. ------------->

We left South Carolina on Monday, September 2 around midday and drove to Florida arriving at Animal Kingdom Lodge; Jambo House early afternoon.
