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!
