weekend wrap up / part one

This past weekend we took a quick overnight road trip to Eastern NC. I took a gazillion pictures (surprise, surprise) so I’m going to break this down into two separate posts.

Saturday morning we woke up, loaded up the car, and headed to Greenville, NC home of our alma mater East Carolina University. We are die hard Pirate fans, and love going back to Greenville to enjoy football and baseball games when we can. We were also both heavily involved in the university’s athletics while there, so its nice to see familiar faces and see how the programs have grown and changed over the years.

On Saturday, the ECU Baseball team was playing Tulane in a 3 game weekend series, so we were able to see the one of the games. The team is currently ranked 27th in the nation, Go Pirates!

All pictures from Satuday are from the good ol' Iphone...I felt silly carrying my ginormous camera in to the stadium, the Iphone is so much more discreet!

The long trip there…sleepy baby and bored momma! Eastern NC is wide open, and there is a lot of nothing in between Raleigh and Greenville. Driving Highway 264 is the longest, most boring part.

This is apparently how we choose to wear out bibs now.

Love my baby boy!

Unfortunately the Pirates lost, but over all it was a really fun day for us. We took a quick drive through campus to walk down memory lane, enjoyed a great atmosphere at the ball park, and then loaded up the car and headed to our next stop, Southport, NC.

Stay tuned for the second part of our trip! :)
