Before we headed over to Relay James and I went to visit with Aunt Randy, Uncle Bobby, and Nana. Sandra had pulled out some of Ryan’s old toys, and James had a lot of fun playing with those.
Afterward we headed to South Central. It was one of the biggest crowds I could remember at a Relay. James was not too keen on strolling on the track, but we did get to hang out with lots of friends. Ashley came to see us and hang out at Relay. James did pretty well but had a sudden extreme meltdown so we had to get on home and put him to bed.
Of course one of the best things about being in NC is getting to see family. We really miss not being just a few minutes car drive away! David drove from Wilmington to see us. He could only stay a couple of hours before he had to leave, but we were so thankful he came. Thanks for making such an effort to visit us David!
We also got to hang out with Whitney, Rod, and the Holland’s at their house. JT especially loved playing on the pool table and getting to try some banana pudding given by his Nana.
Since I was staying in Greenville for a decent amount of time it worked out for me to leave James with Granny and go meet my bible study girls in Wilson. We don’t typically get to hang out all at once so it was really special to have that opportunity.
Getting ready to go. It was weird leaving James behind!
The next day our wonderful family photographer Sara came over to take some pictures of James. We took him to the strawberry patch. He was so funny. I think he was a little confused and we couldn’t convince him to eat a strawberry. It may have been the first time he ever refused food! These are just a few of the pics that I took. I can't wait to see Sara's!
We had some more visitors that day including Aunt Sandra who hadn’t met JT yet. He loved her!!! Abby and her mom stopped by as well as Shannon. Shannon and I had planned on walking but went shopping instead- haha!
My mom invited me to go to the Power of the Purse luncheon on my last day in town. We needed someone to babysit and my dad graciously volunteered. I have to admit I was the slightest bit skeptical about the situation and left a lot of detailed notes. Dad not only got James down for a nap but he even dealt with a massive diaper blowout. Dad- I will never doubt your abilities again!!!
Aunt Nell and Margy came to visit and go to the luncheon
It was another great trip to NC. I’m always amazed at how fast the days fly by and fill up. There is never enough time to do all I want to do or see everyone I want to see. But…that’s just another reason we will have to come back soon, right? :)
This is one of those outfits his dad and uncle make fun of, but I think it looks precious!
One of the funniest moments of the trip. James was scared of Granny Deb's bread. He doesn't know what he is missing!!!
