Weekend in North Carolina: A Wedding, A Photo Booth and A Robot Calculator

Recently my family and I traveled from Philadelphia down to Chapel Hill, North Carolina, for the wedding of a relative. It was our first road trip in almost a decade. The drive was extremely long but also extremely entertaining, we stopped often to eat at rest areas,

run a lap around some trees,

take tourist photos

and watch hours upon hours of The Office.

When we arrived at our hotel we were greeted with a basket full of North Carolina yummies: Cheerwine soda, slim jims etc. Later that night we went to the fun rehearsal dinner which took place in a huge eclectically designed lounge called G-Loft in Durham.

The day of the wedding we explored Chapel Hill,

sampled it's many gourmet delights which included cupcakes, Cluck-U fried chicken and I also introduced my family to Bubble Tea.

We strolled on UNC's campus and found a great poster for the Presidential Debate, which my brothers proceeded to reenact. The part of Barack "the Hope" Obama was played by Gil and Shai was John "Maverick" McCain. The Hope ended winning the match. Ding!

We also stopped by the UNC Morehead Planetarium and Science Center Gift Shop where I found the calculator of my dreams... Robot Calculator!

At night we attended our relative's wedding and had a blast. Great food, beautiful ceremony and best of all a photo booth!!
