I took a red-eye back to Wilmington and Becca and Jackson picked me up at the airport (Katie was in school) I can't describe how good it felt to hug them! Katie kindly gave up her bed for me for the week but I shared the room with Spike the Bearded Dragon...who sleeps with a blanket ad pillow when it's cold! ------>
Becca had to work some days and Jackson was still on Spring Break so he and I got in lots of time...coloring and playing the Toss Em game I brought them. He kicked my butt more than once! Most of our days were routine, soccer practice, gymnastics practice, pepperoni rolls for J's lunch, homework for Katie and coloring in her Dia de los Muertes coloring book. I didn't get to spend as much time with her since she was in school but I treasured every minute I spent with both of them. Besides spending as much time as I could with Becca and the kids, there were a few other things I wanted to do while in Wilmington.
One was to see Angela and get my hair cut, which I did the first day. I got it cut a bit shorter than normal but so much more of my hair is natural now.

Another thing on my list was take-out from Brooklyn Pizza. We did that twice. Pizza and Chicken Parmigiana sub. Jack was jealous!
On my last day, while picking Katie up from school, we realized I hadn't been to the beach so we picked Katie up and went over to the beach. Jackson helped me collect shells for Chanoa...she'd asked me to bring her shells from the beach before I left California. The day was sunny and a little cool but that didn't stop Katie and Jackson from getting their feet wet!

The only downside of the trip was saying good bye before heading back to California and Jack. Can't wait to see them again!
P.S. I haven't mentioned our day trip to Raleigh to see the Brick Universe...that requires a post all it's own.
