Touring The World, Part One

Hi! How's it going? Gotta say I'm doing pretty good myself.

So the reason I haven't blogged in the last two weeks is because I was on an awesome trip (which we shall discuss shortly) for the first week and I had to write a paper the second week.

BUT that second week is irrelevant, because here I am to tell you all about my awesome trip!!!

Friday, March 22

Sadly, I still had to go to school. But really? School on the Friday before Spring Break? Can we just cancel classes? Nothing gets done anyways.
No really. We played kickball in band...

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is the epitome of productivity.

So right after school (as in, the last bell rang and I ran for the car), the Parental Units and I headed out!!

Now I have this really awesome band director (who has known me since I was born and used to babysit me... BEFORE she was my band director) and she's really awesome. How awesome? Well, she gave me this card:
A glittery Keep Calm and Carry On card wishing me luck on my college road trip!!
She's totally super awesome. :)
She also gave me a goodie bag full of fun stuff for the trip. Including Dark Chocolate.
Yeah. She's the best.
So the Parents and I drove all the way until we made it to Georgia, where we overnighted.
 My suitcase!!! (I did a pretty good packing job, if you ask me)
And I TOTALLY rocked my crazy slippers around the hotel.
In related news, this would be a good time to introduce the fact that I have an iPod touch now. It's officially replaced my camera, which is both good and bad. It doesn't take good pictures in bad lighting, but in the right lighting it's awesome!!
That is all.
HAHA just kidding! That ISN'T all.
I got this really cool app called "Photolettering". It lets you take pictures and then you can put text over them. This is one I made with a picture of Breanne Duren.

After messing around with that app, I decided to tell Georgia goodnight.
Saturday, March 23
We got up pretty early to head for our next destination. If I say so myself, I was pretty styilish when we left.
We stopped at Toccoa Falls College (it was on the way) and went to see the falls themselves.
AAND Yep. That's my Dad pulling a suprise attack during a picture. Note the terrified look on my face. Yep. That's my dad.
And then I took this one. I'm very proud of how this came out.
Mom took a picture of my driving.
Despite what anyone ever tells you, I'm a good driver.
Now allow me to introduce you to the greatest place on earth.
No, it's not Disney World, though Disney is pretty awesome.
It's Goats on the Roof.
They literally have Goats.
On a roof.
Profound, right?
It's a tourist trap, but it's awesome! Especially if you have smalll (or large) children.
No really. Take them there now.
*ahem* Anyways....
I love the mountains. So much. I want to move there eventually.
So after a lot of traveling, we arrived at my aunt and uncle's house in North Carolina. We celebrated Dad's birthday early, since they weren't sure if they'd see us again.

Coconut cake!!
My aunt left a white porcelain cat on my bed. She's pretty awesome. Thanks Aunt D!
Sunday, March 24
As much as we hated to travel on a Sunday, we had to if we wanted to make all our stops. 

Here's a picture of my aunt and uncle's dog, Behr. He looks like a puppy in this picture, but don't be fooled. He's huge. And soft and cuddly and sweet, but huge!
This bag of trail mix was in the goodie bag too! It had these really yummy chocolate covered caramel clusters... mmmmmmm.
I was actually being productive and working on my APUSH homework.
FINALLY we arrived at our destination of the day: Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia!
Also, my first sighting of snow. Ever.
Liberty Mountain!!!!
Yeah... they have their own mountain.
The view outside our hotel room!
So. Much. Snow.
Well, I think that's a good place to stop the story for now! But WAIT... There's more!!!
