Surprise Trip to NC!

A couple weeks ago I got a text from our Aunt Val asking if we would be interested in coming up to North Carolina for a visit. She wanted to surprise her sister, (Clementine’s Grammy) Alex. Of course we wanted to visit, so we made plans for a time when Dave was going to be in the field because he wouldn’t have been able to join us either way.

Off we went!

It was Clementine’s first plane ride, and she did a lot better than I expected. There were a few ~15min moments of tantrums in the airport and on the plane, but for the most part she was great (for a two year old anyway haha).

We arrived at Grammy and Poppy’s house around 8pm, somehow didn’t alert the in-laws when we pulled in, rang the doorbell, and hid.


Grammy and Poppy were shocked and thrilled!

We spent hours with them that night, and stayed up way past our bed time. I think we left after 1 am! We just couldn’t leave.

Over the next couple days we had lots of fun.

I wanted to get together with some of mine and Clementine’s friends, so we made some plans for that.

We met my friend Jenny and Clementine’s buddy Aidan at the playground nearby.
