north carolina

A couple of weekends ago, Ella and I traveled with Bob to North Carolina. Bob is at the point in medical school where he is applying for residency. North Carolina has a great program and has always been one of the schools he has been interested in. Neither of us had ever been before so we went to check everything out. It was just beautiful!
We started the trip off right by eating at our all time favorite place Chipotle. If Lubbock only knew what they were missing out on...

There were so many fun things to do in North Carolina, Ella was loving it! We went to the park one day and this fantastic kids museum another day.

It's obvious where Ella gets her mad skills from:)

The museum we went to was called Marbles Kids Museum and it was out of this world. We are used to the good ole science spectrum here in Lubbock and this place blew it out of the water.
Ella didn't know what to do with herself. We closed the place down and I think she would have stayed all night!

There was so many different things for her to do. She played cashier, went surfing, built with legos, put on her own broadway show on a stage, and of course danced. There was this one part of the museum where an oversized ipod was playing music along with a wall of mirrors and tutus to put on. Once Ella discovered this, she played with nothing else. She comes alive when there is music she can dance to. It is one of my favorite things about her.

Like two peas in a pod.
It was such a wonderful trip and I wish I would have taken so many more pictures. Who knows...maybe we will be back there someday:)

Hello! I found your blog because I'm a childhood friend of Lindsey Halbert, and I absolutely love it! Anyway, just wanted to let you know that I went to Carolina for undergrad, and I adored every second of living in Chapel Hill. I would go back in a heartbeat. If you ever have any questions about Chapel Hill or NC in general, let me know!

Have a great day!

Please tell me you paid the extra $1.85 for the guac! Money well spent. :)

Allison! Sean and I lived in Durham for 2 years and LOVED the area. You will have so much fun if you move there. I used to go to that Chipotle in Chapel Hill until Durham got one. And that museum is so great. If you end up there I have lots of recommendations for places to eat and go!
