After a couple of days in Kentucky, we headed back to NC to spend New Year's with my cousins, Ryan and Destinee and their family. It's become our tradition and we always have a great time with them. We ended up passing through five states (NC, WV, VA, KY, and TN) in five days. Awesome. Then we had one day left to be lazy at home before sending the kids back to school. And Andrew to work.
