Quick Visit in Dillon

*I apologize for the many pictures that will follow. I think my mom will be the only one to look at them all. :)

When we went to Raleigh last weekend, we broke up our trip so that we wouldn't have to drive the 5 hours all at once or get a hotel there. My mom happened to be going to see my grandma in Dillon the same day we were leaving for Raleigh. Since Dillon was on the way, we decided to stay there for the night and make the remainder of the trip the next morning.

I haven't been to Dillon in a really long time. I have so many wonderful memories of going, like riding 4-wheelers (my favorite), playing with my cousins, brushing the horses' hair, driving my grandpa's pickup truck and loving the open land. These memories came rushing as soon as we were pulling into my grandma's drive.

I was so glad for Jeremy and Finn to see a place I had so many good times too. We all enjoyed being in the country and made a day of memories ourselves.
[So much room to roam and run.]
[Finn's favorite thing right now is trucks. So you can imagine his wonder when he saw all these. Let's just say there were a ton of "trucks!" "honk hoooonk's!""wow's!" & "whoa's!"]
 [If Finn was in heaven seeing all these trucks, Jeremy was equally in heaven seeing his favorite trucks, the International Scout, that my uncle has. I believe I heard a few, "whoooa's!" out of him too. In fact, this is the first time he's asked me to take his picture. I know one day he'd like to restore one like the beautiful one my uncle did.]
[Here's a 1957 Chevy truck my Uncle Charles restored. It has all original parts and so it took 15 years to complete. How cool is this?]
[We couldn't pass up seeing the chickens and horses.]
[So if you're stuck it out til here, you can see we made our rounds on our short visit. We got to see our family's farm fields, lots of trucks, animals and family. It was a great visit & want to make it back soon!]

  1. Isn't that much space great for little boys?! Along with farm animals and trucks? My boys would've been in heaven!

    P.S. You are beautiful!
