I intended to publish this post this morning and it has been a crazy day of preschool (what else?!?) and Sam throwing up at school. Fun times. But better late than never for this post, right?
The last blog friend we visited on our Southern Road Trip was sweet Sherry and her family in North Carolina. Sherry's daughter, Mattie, was stillborn in June 2013 and I've been praying for her family every day since then. And I know some of you have been as well. At the beginning of March, Sherry and her husband, Eddie, welcomed their rainbow baby, Mattox into their lives. I was so excited to finally hug Sherry and hold Mattox. But on our way to Sherry's we had another stop to make...
I'm going a little out of order here because these next pictures were taken on our second day there, but I was so happy to hold Mattox. And we even got a picture with Mattie too :)
These two really are a lot alike, much as Sherry and I suspected :)
These two aren't that dissimilar either :)
On Thursday we spent the day in Raleigh. First up was some southern BBQ. I had the best fried okra of the trip, and some BBQ tofu. It was delicious!
We were hoping to end our day off with some mini golf before we headed out, but it was just too rainy. We had such a great time meeting Sherry, Eddie, Evan, Brody, and Mattox and can't wait until we get to hang out together again.
