(Tonight is Doug's night to blog, but he has asked for a pass and will blog 2 nights in a row some other time. Enjoy some Lizzie thoughts...) was nice and relaxing. We headed to the Jacksonville area to see Janessa at her house. DB and I got some quality time with Roscoe (the beagle), Daisy (the dachshund) and two major spiders. We arrived around 9 am and had some quality time with the whole crew. After a few minutes, Janessa let me work on her garage. We got some things packed up and organized. Then we moved to their office. We had some serious fun in there. (I have before and after pictures.) Doug painted a wall, worked on a computer, and various other tasks. He is such a trooper. 

We picked up some traditional eastern North Carolina BBQ (vinegar based) and it was yummy. We had pulled pork and some awesome sides. See photo.

After a fun filled day with Janessa and crew we headed back to Wilmington to eat a fantastic dinner with Pat and Jackie. Pat cooked some Kielbasa (Polish sausage) and it was fantastic. Jackie made some veggies and happiness. We ate dinner and left to head to downtown Wilmington, but my stomach had other ideas. See photo. 

After an Ice Cream run (for Jackie, Doug and Pat), we played Scene It and hung out for a few hours. Having fun with the friends. :) AND iIt is nice to be in the same place for a few days. 
Tomorrow is our last full day in Wilmington before moving on to DC (we think!). 

In other news: Congrats to Julie' and Michael!! Emma Mae was born this afternoon at 5:46 pm. She is 7 lbs and 12 oz! YAY!!! Another Disney fan arrived on earth today.
Letter to the Editor: In yesterday's update, I stated that Matthew was in training in Arizona. In reality, he is in California. Please forgive the incorrect data.

Driving update: Lizzie still has not driven once on this trip. Doug is the man.
