40 DEGREES NEVER FELT SO WARM
In early February we traveled to Charlotte, NC so Rob could attend a conference - the rest of us tagged along to visit our friends April and Dave and their daughters Morgan and Abbie. Haley and Morgan have been friends since they were 4 months old and they seemed to pick up right where they left off (they moved from Grand Forks in 2005 and we've only seen them ONCE since then). Within seconds the girls were playing hide-and-seek and they were basically inseparable the whole time.
Jake and Abbie were born 2 months apart and had a fun time racing down the hallway and cruising around the hotel furniture. We were so excited to spend time outside, having suffered early-onset cabin fever this year. Although it was in the mid-40's and windy, we explored downtown Charlotte by foot and let the girls race around the many office-park fountains. It was inevitable that one of them would slip in - Haley managed to beat Morgan to it. After several fun and relaxing days we had to tear ourselves away and fly back to our frozen home. We miss you, Barnes family!
