North Carolina (or as my cousin says, North Cakalaka)

I got to go to North Carolina for Presidents' Day weekend with my two best friends. I thought that it was great that I got to go right after we learned about the Wright Brothers since they too went there (they went to test out the first airplane.) While I didn't get to go to Kitty Hawk, I did take a picture with a license plate that says "First in Flight" and has an airplane just like the Wright Brothers. I also got to see my brother Russell who calls himself "Awesome Abe" even though Abraham Lincoln's nickname was "Honest Abe." Another cool thing I took a picture of was the wall in the restaurant where we ate breakfast. It had SAINTS signs! And hanging from the ceiling was a chandelier (I checked to see if Roscuro was hanging from it but he was not.) We were just reading about a chandelier in our book, The Tale of Despereaux. I hope you all had a great weekend too!

YEAH for Presidents Day with best friends! I had an amazing time! Hurry back. And, if need be, we can go to Kitty Hawk (only about 8 hours from here!). And, I guess Awesome Abe is not only your borther, but your new best friend since neither of the girls made your blog! HMPH!! : )

How many presidents have we learned about this year? Do the kids have a favorite?
