Despite the fact that I am very much a mom, I don’t do a lot of mommy/kid posts here. I don’t plan on making this into a mommy blog (there are plenty of people who do that well) BUT I will on occasion, share some posts revolving around the kid or mommying.
After all, it gives me an excuse to talk about poop. Just not in this post.
Last weekend I went on a quick visit to North Carolina. By train.
This may not be a big deal to many of you, but it was the first time in my thirty-something years that I’ve been on a train. Orlando to Raleigh isn’t exactly a small start either.
I did mention that the kid was with me, right? His first train ride, too.
Folks, he may never want to fly again.
As if the train ride weren’t enough, running around a new place and spending time with awesome family (and new friends) who kept him entertained has possibly spoiled him for life.
Or maybe not. This is a kid who is, at this very moment, entertaining himself by placing letters on my feet and singing. What follows are some of the highlights.
In addition to the wandering and spending time with friends, we visited The Life and Science Museum in Durham. While I won’t subject you to the entire photo tour of that experience, I will share this one shot.
We happened to show up at the butterfly pavilion just as they were going to release newly hatched butterflies. Jonas volunteered his arm as a jumping off point for the smallest, youngest one in the bunch.
