Road Trip

I took a road trip this weekend with my BFF Brandy - and it was great!!  We left Friday late afternoon and drove to Pittsburgh.  I've done the drive more times than I can count, but this is the first time that I was the driver!  Let me say, its definitely less fun as the driver - 9 hours in a car, in the same position, staying awake - yuck!  But, I'd do it again in a heartbeat to see my family.

We arrived just before midnight at my Aunt & Uncle's house - needless to say, we pretty much went straight to bed.  Saturday morning, we got up and went to the best chocolate/candy place ever - Sarris Candies.  They have every kind of chocolate imaginable.  So, we got lots of goodies and headed to my Pap's house.  (I highly suggest their chocolate covered pretzels - best in the world).  We visited with Pap for a bit, then headed downtown with my Dad & little sis Callie to ride the Incline.  I haven't done it in years, so it was cool to do a touristy activity :)  Then, us gals headed to Wings, Suds & Spuds for the world's best wings and curly fries.

Then, we headed to Mass (Brandy's first Catholic Mass & she was a great sport).  It was in memory of my Gram - and they even played her favorite hymn during Communion...of course, this lead to tears.  But, tears of joy because I know she is still here with me and watching over all of us.  Love you Gram!!!

The final event of the trip was my cousin's surprise birthday party!!  Somehow, it was able to remain a surprise - that was a surprise in itself.  So, we ate some more and partied with the family, but not too hard since we had to drive back to SC the next morning & lost an hour of sleep with the time change.

So, Sunday morning rolled around and we hopped back in the car after stopping to tell Pap, Dad & Callie goodbye.  I must say, Brandy is a trooper - we only had one potty break on the way up and one on the way down - woohoo :)

Haven't downloaded the pics yet, but will post a few later!
