I Can Haz Vacation?


The 4th of July has always been a special day for Stephanie and I, because that’s the day we met!

A year ago we took the extended Independence Day weekend and went camping in Asheboro.

Steph was a solid 5 months pregnant at the time, and she was a trooper! We camped through rain and hail, woke up wet, grilled inside our tent, and walked for miles at the zoo. It was awesome!

Since we met three years ago, we have yet to take a real vacation together. We managed to sneak off for a week for our honeymoon, but even that seemed rushed, and we haven’t had anything longer than an extended weekend since.

But all that changes starting today, because we are off on our first ever Riesland family vacation!

We’ll be stopping at Stone Mountain, the Georgia Aquarium, Panama City Beach (gonna see the new home of the Statons), and Charleston (gonna see the new home of the Flaglers)!

We’ll be back next weekend, and will probably be online intermittently between now and then, so please be patient if it takes us a couple days to reply to emails.

In the meantime, have a great first week of July!
