North Car-o-line -ah -ah-ah

So far North Carolina is pretty great.

We arrived in North Carolina on December 21.  Unfortunately, our stuff didn't arrive until several weeks later.  So we camped out in our new dining room with an air mattress, and a couple suit cases worth of belongings.

After some mediocre Chinese food on Christmas day (and finding out that our stuff wouldn't arrive for at least another week) we decided a trip to Illinois was just what we needed.

Eventually our stuff arrived safe and sound.  Unloading and unpacking was quite a process (why do we have so much stuff)?!

Some of our favorite things about the area so far are...

downtown Raleigh,

a pretty sweet children's museum,

delicious food (particularly the chicken and waffles at Beasley's Chicken and Honey),

this awesome state park a mere 5 minutes from our apartment,

and the weather. 

We enjoyed having days warm enough for bike rides in the winter...

but also enjoyed some snowy days as well. 

We sound some cool things to do on weekends like...

A robot competition,

and a mini maker fair.
 Oh, and there are lots of fire flies.

I think we're going to like it here.
