I have been down south so many times. It’s where my folks are from. Alright? I can afford to travel down there at least. My great-grandma was turning 93 and the family threw her a birthday party. This was in late August, so we went pretty late in the year. It was the hottest time of the year. I felt like a baked potato for sure.
My mom, my grandma, me and my grandpa all went. We had a friend help us drive down there. We rented a minivan because why not? If you’re going on a long drive you want legroom. I feel like a caged animal being in a small space for a long time.
~header image is from Pixabay but other photos are mine.
The photos will be out of order a bit. I don’t remember the order they were taken in. Thay is my bad. We arrived at the hotel where the party was being held. It was rough with all the people but at least it was an open space and not a small one. I have to admit I have trouble recognizing my folks but they don’t mind because we don’t see each other often.
I used a selfie stick for the first time. My cousin had to help me set it up which is funny because I have to help my mom or grandma with their phones lol. I am going to have fun with this travel diaries. It can get tiring when I have a little too much fun taking photos.
We ate at the Cracker Barrel before the party. It was a combo of an eatery and had a little country store. I didn’t have money to buy anything. Which is why for this trip I am saving everything I can from my crypto blogs. I do have a lot of portrait mode photos. Can you believe it took me doing YouTube to break the habit of portrait photos/filming?
There was a waterslide at the picnic. I don’t care how old I am. I am getting in the water. It was hot enough for it down there for sure. I wish I did make a vlog for this trip. At least I made one for the sudden one.
I found these photos looking in my Google Drive. I should look through my photos more often.
Got some photos while my folks were checking into the hotel. The lobby was so nice.
Some photos were taken at the party. Look at all the people that were there.
Is this kid flexing in the water? Looks good though. I’d flex in water as well. This kid could be a model. Maybe a swim trunk model.
I think this was taken in the breakfast room.
