Top Ten Moments of 2011

Happy New Year! 2012 has arrived in style but 2011 happened to be pretty awesome. Here are our Top 10 Moments of 2011 captured on camera. Enjoy!

Pit Master Jeremy learns to make his own BBQ and boy are you missing out if you haven't tried it! His special recipe is mighty tasty. Since he cooks the meat for close to 24 hours, the house is filled with the smell of sweet savory meat. No worries. We'll invite you over this summer for a taste :)

This was a great day! We got to witness the Panthers literally BEAT DOWN the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Christmas Eve. Cam set a record, the Panthers won the game, and we got to repeatedly show off our quarterback's celebration dance all day long.

It was the "craziest frickin' day" of our lives. The second annual Warrior Dash was held in our home state of North Carolina and we showed up with the best costumes there; The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. We had a blast trudging through various obstacles and of course jumping over fire and crawling through the mud. Cowabunga, Dude!

On a trip to Charleston, South Carolina to celebrate Asha's last moments as a single woman, her best friends and sister surprised her with a parasailing trip over the beach. It was a thrilling moment being suspended that high in the air but fun and forgetful, nonetheless.

We wanted to leave our wedding in style at the U.S. National White Water Center. We were able to do so by zip-lining into the sunset, waving to all of our friends and family below. The ride actually felt pretty relaxing and was a great end to the day.

On our last stop of our Honey-cruise at the Grand Cayman Islands, we had a visit to the Cayman Island Sea Turtle Farm. What was great about the turtle farm was that we didn't expect to do as much as we did there. We got the opportunity to hold not one, not two, but THREE different sizes of Green Sea Turtles. It was pretty awesome and we were excited to experience something so unique.

Not many families get to spend the holidays with BOTH of their immediate families in one place. Lucky for us, we got both of our families to come together for a delicious Thanksgiving meal all under one roof. It was a day filled with laughter, love, and family. Something we'll never forget.

How many people can say that they have zip-lined from the treetop to treetop only to land amongst the beaches of Honduras? Not many. But you can count us in. This canopy tour was an absolute thrill and a breathtaking experience. Being able to overlook the beaches, rivers, and jungles Honduras has to offer was an amazing, extraordinary feeling.

We are officially homeowners! Finding a home and calling it ours is something we are thankful for each and every day. We've had a fun time decorating the walls of our home really making it ours.

OF COURSE our number one moment of 2011 is the day we tied the knot! We couldn't have asked for a more perfect day. We're forever thankful for all of the family and friends in attendance and we will cherish the wonderful memories made on THE BEST DAY OF 2011!!
