Family...North Carolina

North Carolina...Have you been?  It's a place with a much slower pace, very sweet people, and beautiful nature.  We shopped, sat by the fire, visited beautiful waterfalls, went zip lining and spent as much time as we could on the front porch laughing and looking out onto the Blue Ridge Mountains.  My father has taken on the hobby of playing the mandolin (bluegrass music) and he made sure to take all our silly song requests as we sat by the fire in their front yard.  

What do you do to create memories with your family?  It's hard when they live far away, but sometimes makes the visit all that more special....wouldn't you agree?
