Trip to Greenville, SC

Joel took a job at Michelin in Greenville, South Carolina. I thought I should visit where we'll be moving to later this year. It's about 150 miles north of Atlanta and a 2 1/2 hour drive. Emery HATES the car, so I rarely venture more than 30 minutes anywhere. But, Joel's mother is visiting and so we decided to go for a day trip on Wednesday. The weather was beautiful and we had a great time. Emery did really good too with a grandma in the backseat to keep him busy. This is a cool park in the Downtown area called Falls Park. The river is Reedy River.

We had to stop for some ice cream to cool off after walking around downtown
Before we left we visited the Michelin shop and got some Michelin merchandise (not tires, just tshirts and mints and stuff that say Michelin on them)!
After seeing Greenville I'm even more excited to move there! Thanks to Grandma Kathy for making the trip possible!

It looks very beautiful there in Greenville. I hope you will enjoy it and especially that Joel will enjoy his job. Check out my new blog! My old family website was deleted by joinme.net, sigh. I worked hard on that for a few years . . . all wasted. Anyway, so far I've included some things about Easter and our recent vacation and I'm working backward from that point. Check your email for the links.

How fun! I am glad you like it, we will have to visit.
If they need extra rolls for the michelin man, we have plenty.

It looks so peaceful and quite up there. Jay and Abe do pretty well in the car. They keep each other company. What a great opportunity for your family. We will miss y'all!
