The weather was finally warm enough for us to get outside and venture around the surrounding towns. Of course, with a newborn I was dying to do a little shopping. We all know, shopping for teeny tiny babies is the BEST! So we went to an adorable town 15 minutes away from our host home for some shopping, lunch, and ice cream. This was the town we were driving to when we got "the call" about Jerik so I was excited to actually visit it and have it be a place of fun memories.
I'm not going to lie, there was numerous times while we were in North Carolina that I wondered why we lived in South Dakota, and the beautiful weather in the middle of winter was not helping those thoughts! It was so fun to get out with our kids and make memories in new places. If you know me, that is one thing I love. I'm a memory maker. I love adventures, traveling, and experiencing it ALL with our kids. It had been 6 days since we arrived in NC, and because of the snow we hadn't experienced enough adventures for my liking. So the rest of our time spent there was going to be PACKED with fun.
Danny was already getting anxious to head home, but I was the complete opposite. I would have stayed for months if I could have! At this point we were just waiting for clearance to leave the state and then we could book our flights and fly home. Tomorrow, we had an exciting surprise for the kids and so no call was going to change our plans!
Hi, I'm Kansas! I wish we could be doing this face to face over coffee. Maybe someday, till then this will have to do!
