The past two months have flown by and I never took the time to document all the ways we celebrated throughout the month of October. I know people have many opinions about whether or not Christians should observe Halloween and in our family, we have are comfortable letting Lena dress up and carve pumpkins as well as trick-or-treat. But more on that later.
I'm a big Breaking Bad fan. Admittedly, most of the chemistry references were over my head as I avoided high school science classes as much as possible. Also, chemistry involves math and I am a self-diagnosed numeric dyslexic so it was simply out of the question for me.
Wanting to tire Lena out before our long flight home, we took her to Marbles Kids Museum in Raleigh. I'm certainly no expert on children's museums but I have to think this one ranks up there as one of the best.
After a week of waiting and hoping, a flight finally showed up and it was headed directly to Seymour Johnson, of all places. This was the best possible scenario and we were ecstatic but still a bit cautious as we weren't sure we'd actually get on the flight. Since we had a couple days to kill before the flight actually left, we decided to take Lena to the Linton Zoo.
For Lena's second birthday, we were really hoping to make it back to the States so we could celebrate with all our family and friends. So we decided that if we could find a military flight going anywhere on the East Coast
Before heading out to our highly anticipated woollen mill tour, we enjoyed a traditional English breakfast at the guest house. You could tell the owner took a lot of pride in her home and had added thoughtful details that really made our stay special.
