To Raleigh and Back

On Friday, I had the day off and had signed up to go to Aidan's Kindergarten class to read a couple of our favorite books.  What a great experience!!!  I am soooo doing that again!  I read them "The Magic Hockey Stick" and "There was a Coyote".  Next time I will do "Down by the Cool of the Pool" for sure.  Aidan got to sit next to me and he even helped some by turning pages.  It was so fun!

We picked Aidan up a little early from school and then headed down to Raleigh to see some friends of ours.  It was about a 4 1/2 hour trip each way, but so much fun!  That night we went to see the Carolina Hurricanes play the Capitals. . .we, of course, were in our Caps gear and were cheering loud and strong for our team. . .but, alas, they didn't win.  But, we had so much fun!  Our seats were awesome!!!

Dollar hot dog night, too!!

We were kind of surprised at how many Caps fans there were.  We were definitely not alone!!

On Saturday, Pat's birthday, we got up leisurely and had some pancakes and sausage for breakfast--YUM!! and then headed back home.  We got back in time for Aidan's Mini Mites, where he did really really good, although he was a little rough with a boy who made him mad. . .but that's for another time.  Then we headed straight to Grandma's and Grandpa's to bathe Aidan and then headed out to Clydes for a birthday dinner, which was super yummy!  After cake and presents, we collected the dogs and headed the rest of the way home.  Another late night for all!

We decided to just sleep in on Sunday.  When we got up, we went out to breakfast and then to the grocery store to replenish the pantry and then just hung around doing laundry, watching hockey and football.  Dinner in and then the weekend was over. . .

But, now we have freezing fog!!  Wonderful!  After the ice storm on Saturday--which we followed up I95, this should make some great roads. . .

Happy Monday!!
