Carolina Dreamin'

The computer is doing better now; in fact, I'm actually online via the broadband connection rather than the old dial-up one, which is a huge improvement. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Today we're leaving for our annual Birthday Weekend Trip, a short family vacation we take every year around my son's birthday (he turned 6 on Wednesday). He asked to go to a state he's never been to before. There's only one left that is close enough for an easy weekend trip, so we're off to North Carolina this afternoon. We're going to The Outer Banks, which will probably be too cold this time of year. But the hotel has an indoor pool, and I love being near the ocean in the winter -- especially when we can see it through the window if the weather outside is daunting. We're staying at Kitty Hawk and will visit the Wright Brothers Memorial. And there's an Aquarium on Roanoke Island, not far from there. And there are plenty of bridges to cross, which my little Cutie Pie always enjoys. (Trains are another passion of his, but we decided to hold off on another train-related trip until warmer weather.) We'll be back Monday.

Happy Weekend!
