ICES 2011!

Since the convention was put together by both North Carolina and South Carolina, ICES had 2 show cakes this year! One was of Charlotte. They did a great replica of the buildings, even with correct heights, Bank of America being the tallest, followed by Duke Energy, Vue, Hearst, and so on.. There was a race track going around the city with cars that actually moved around it. The cars were not set up when I took this picture.

Below is the second show cake that definitely shows everything North Carolina is known for..

My husband's favorite.. We have "House Divided: NC State & UNC" flags and decorations in our home because my husband is for NC State and I, of course, am for UNC.

Full car shot. It had a radio that played throughout the day.

My favorite.. Cheerwine! I definitely missed the heck out of some Cheerwine while we lived in California. I had family that was kind enough to bring me some when they came to visit!

That is all for now. I will post more later! I had a wonderful time and cannot wait to do it all over again next year. I was so sad to see it end. Hopefully I will see you all next year in Reno!
