North Carolina

This week we had an adventure! Andrew had to go to North Carolina to two plants for business. We decided to go along with him! Wednesday we traveled from Sharpsburg, GA to Wilmington Beach, NC! It was a LONG LONG ride but we had fun! That next morning I drove Andrew to work and then drove Jackson to the beach. It was very warm (70 degrees)! We parked and walked up to the beach which was very windy and Jackson didn't like that too much. He did enjoy watching all of the locals walking with their dogs on the beach. Evidently Wilmington Beach is a huge surf spot and so we got to watch the surfers. The funny thing is that Jackson sat on the sand for literally 2 minutes and when we got back to the car and I changed his diaper there was sand EVERYWHERE! OIY! Here is where he found a seashell and tried to eat it...

So we left the beach and found a really nice outdoor mall and since the weather was great I put Jackson in the stroller and we walked around and shopped for a while. We went to lunch and then went to pick up Andrew at work. Andrew wanted to go to the beach before we left so we drove him to where we were earlier. Jackson thought it was so much fun to have daddy at the beach and he had the biggest smile the entire time we were there. Andrew put Jackson's hands in the water so Jackson has now touched the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean before he was one! Jackson thought it was funny and tried to stick his hands in Andrew's mouth.
That night we drove to Mebane, NC...which if you ever get a chance to go there, pass on that. That day was hard because I didn't have the beautiful beach or the fancy outdoor mall and it was 40 degrees! So we found an outlet mall in Burlington which only had a Carter's outlet. So I stayed in there as long as possible and got Jackson some "big boy" pjs. Later we picked up Andrew and drove down to Asheville. Overall our trip was very fun but we are SOOO glad to be back home!
