We <3 North Carolina

This past weekend, we were lucky enough to fly to North Carolina to visit friends and family. It was Emerson’s first plane trip and she did great! She slept the whole time so it was actually a pretty easy trip. We’re hoping it’s a good indication of how she will be on our long trip overseas.

While we were there, we tried to see as  many people as possible. It was so much fun to show off my sweet girl.

We had lunch with some of my very favorite teachers. I worked with all of these ladies when I taught at Camp Lejeune and each of them has had such a great impact on me. I was so excited that Emerson got to meet them.

Emerson also got to meet her cousins, Matthew and Jordan. Unfortunately, I didn’t get a picture of them together! Sad smile

We got to spend some time with Barb and Gary, Molly and Jarod, Mike and Amy, and Kate and Robbie. It was so awesome to see everyone and it really made us miss North Carolina. Hopefully it will be home again one day soon.

I also go the opportunity to get my hair done by my very favorite stylist! She’s been doing my hair for about 8 years so I really missed her! I’ve had it done a couple of times since we moved but it just wasn’t the same. Of course, I took Emerson along! I can tell she’s going to be a priss because she loved it at the salon, especially when someone told her she was pretty!

Even though it was a quick trip, we had a really great time and we are so glad we got to go.

That sounds like such a great trip! I was thinking about ya'll and your move- how soon is it?

Two more questions...
Where did you get Emerson's adorable ruffle pants and shirt in the last picture?

And, how was it flying with an infant- specifically did you have a seat for her or did you gate check her carseat/stroller? This is the part I'm most nervous about!

Amy Young said...

So happy I got to see you while you were in town! AND MEET EMERSON! She really is SOO precious.

Hope you have a safe trip to the next destination. We'll be thinking of you guys! Maybe we can visit this time! That would be nice.

Have a good week lady!

Glad your trip went well. Emerson looks so long!

Also, I was wondering, did you travel with her in a carseat or plane side check it?
