North Carolina Here We Come!

Today we are leaving a cold and very windy Pennsylvania and heading for a much warmer and sunnier North Carolina to visit with our son, daughter-in-law and little cowboy! I am so looking forward to spending the whole week spoiling the little guy, but we hope to enjoy some warm weather, shopping and sight seeing while we are there too. The weather is promising to be in the lower 60's, which will be quite a bit warmer than the temperatures that we have been having here in Pennsylvania. While we are there our son, who is an USMC MP with the K9 Unit, is going to be doing a demonstration with is K9 partner, so we are very excited that we are going to be able to see them both in action. We're also looking forward to visiting some of the surrounding towns that we didn't get to see the last time we were there. In anticipation of the shopping part of the trip, I contacted the Twin Rivers Quilters Guild and asked for information about local quilt shops in the area. Their president was most helpful and sent me a list of several "don't miss" shops complete with driving directions! I don't know that we'll get to see and do everything on our list, but I am sure that this is going to be a very good trip!
