a couple of weeks ago, my sister and i took claire to greensboro for a quick girl’s only getaway!
friday morning, claire and i woke up early and drove to winston salem to hit up trader joes! i can’t believe roanoke doesn’t have one — please, please give us tj’s soon! we stopped for lunch at mcdonalds, which is claire’s new favorite thing. she loves their chicken nuggets and fries, but her absolute favorite thing is ketchup. girl can put back some ketchup.
the house we stayed at, a little air bnb rental, was so cute!
saturday morning, we woke up early and headed to the nc zoo in asheboro. it is a huge walking zoo that has animals from north america and africa. i brought claire in her stroller with a stroller fan and put a small cooler with our lunch underneath! it was so perfect.
we can’t wait to go back in the fall when the weather is a little cooler and claire is a little older! the funniest part of the day was when claire called the gorilla’s “doggies”. i taught her the word “doggie” when we were at the beach, and she calls all animals doggies now! everyone at the exhibit was laughing. it was adorable!
we ate dinner at a little restaurant in greensboro called sticks and stones – a pizza shop. then, it was back to roanoke sunday morning! we are already planning our next girl’s only getaway – a weekend in charlottesville!
