My mom came to visit us the last week in August - her last week of summer and my week in between summer camp and starting my new job! It was so great to have that week off to spend with her.
We did so many fun things, I hope I don't forget any. We went and did so many things that have been on my wish list to do around here too! Thanks for giving me the push to do them, Mom!
The first AWESOME thing we did was drive to Beaufort, NC (about an hour or so) and took a 15 minute ferry ride to Shackelford Banks. It was a beautiful island where you can find wild horses, seashells and a whole lot of beautiful beach.
After walking around and being kind of disappointed, we found them!!! Check them out!
We spent a day at the beach in Topsail:
We drove to Willmington, NC to see their historical downtown area:
|The Battleship North Carolina|
|A fun spices shop|
|Of course we got ice cream!|
|Duke was neutered while mom was in town ... sorry buddy. Sweet cone though ;)|
|We had a crab legs night!!!|
|I even broke them apart myself!|
Mom went to her first change of command ceremony, had her first Krispy Kreme donut ... as well as her first Cheerwine! Welcome to North Carolina, Ma!
It was hard to let her leave .... and for me to go back to work! :)
