Ben’s last day of school was July 27th. As soon as he was free, we packed up and headed down to North Carolina to visit my sister.
For the trip we managed to find a fantastic Airbnb not far from my sisters house with really great amenities.
Grandpa arrived a few days before us and got some quality time with my sister and her family before we came along and hogged him for ourselves.
We did may fun activities that week.
As much fun as the kids had doing all the different activities, my favorite part of the trip was the time spent visiting with my sister, father and many others who took time out of their busy schedules to spend time with us.
The only person I missed seeing was my good friend from college, Jennie. She lives close to my sister’s house but had been in close contact with someone with Covid and I didn’t want to risk seeing her while my 81 year old father was staying with us.
It was a wonderful trip, made better by the fact that my father travelled with us back to Chicago and I get the pleasure of his company for another week.Pin It
