Well, my trip to NC ended up being quite fun. Everyone got along really well, at least on the way there. Coming back was a little more of a struggle but it was worth it. We hung out with Abe's family, played family kick ball, saw the movie Enchanted, and ate lots of pie. We even played with his aunt's goats and went on a forest hike on Thanksgiving day.
But, the best part was that I finally got a roadbike! I am so excited. We found this great bike shop in Chapel Hill that had the bike perfect for me. It was like it was built for me and on sale for about 1/3 the price! I was surprised at how excited I was and I wanted to buy everything to go with it. We got a good start with a helmet, gloves, a carbon water bottle holder, water bottle, lock, etc. The bike is amazing that even Abe's avid biker dad is jealous (I feel a bit bad about that). It seemed to survive the snow and the long ride home. We thought the car seemed a little bit faster with it riding on top.So...I feel like a biker. I hope I can cut it! I can't wait to put on some spandex and hit the hills with my husband.
