Durham Trip!

Here are some photos from our long weekend in Durham, NC!  This was Wesley's first plane trip and JJ's first time having his own seat on the airplane.  They were both pretty good travelers.  For JJ, the iPad (loaded with episodes of Blue's Clues and The Backyardigans) was a big help, and Wesley just needed some ice chips and snuggling and he was mostly content.

JJ talking with the guys over dinner at Old Havana.

JJ had fun rolling down a hill at Duke Gardens.

Relaxing in "the grotto"

Too much activity for Wesley-boo

The Q Shack! Yum.

Taking a break in our room at Homewood Suites

Spent the afternoon and evening at the pool

JJ experiences Cosmic Cantina for the first time. He ate some of his quesadilla but had nowhere near the appropriate level of enthusiasm for this legendary food.

This weekend taught us that Wesley is very intrigued by facial hair.

Posing with Wool E. Bull at the Durham Bulls baseball game

Wool E. World!  JJ's favorite part of the baseball game (rivaling the cotton candy sample Jen gave him)

A walk through the Duke campus was a nice ending to our visit.  JJ loved running through all the archways (or, as he called them, tunnels).  And we hit the Duke bookstore and got each of the boys a piece of Duke apparel.

 A quick peek inside Duke Chapel

Until next time, Durham!
