Travel Blogs from Charlotte
Cousin Wayne took the day off work today...to take us to his work! Wayne works for Richard Childress Racing on Team 31 in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. It's a good hour drive out of Charlotte in the town of Welcome (yes there is a sign that says 'Welcome to Welcome') and the site is enormous.
We first had a look at the 'shop' where the Nationwide teams operate from, then moved on to the big daddy Sprint Cup team cars. ...
... country churches, cotton plantations, small communities and at times rather large houses, dense tree lined interstate roads, numerous fast food, attorney and accommodation signs along the way. We haven't mentioned this before but if you ever need an attorney in the US and don't know one, just drive a mile up any interstate and you will have a wide collection of numbers to call!
We arrived in Charlotte ...
After we got back on the road, I conducted an interview via Skype on my phone while Jeff drove and Andrew played and slept.
Around 3 pm, we pulled into Granpop and Grammy's house and Andrew got to meet his other Grandma for the first time. What a treat!
We got to see Aunt Jana for a bit and then we all called it a night very early since it had been such a long day.
... br> While Andrew didn't enjoy his dinner of fresh sweet potatoes and avocado last night, he DID enjoy his prunes tonight! He ate them with the family while we all enjoyed our meal.
Then Andrew enjoyed his bath on the counter top.
Thanks to the Lozzi's for showing us wonderful hospitality!
On Monday (Labor Day) we got back in the car and drove to Charlotte, NC to see the Lozzi clan. Andrew did very well in the car this day (thankfully!) especially since it was another long drive.
We arrived in Charlotte around 5 pm and had a wonderful dinner with family and enjoyed a beautiful sunset over Lake Norman.
