A Family Reunion in Ohio

OnaSlideHi everyone! I’m sorry I’ve been away for a few weeks, but I’ve been traveling! I explored Durham, drove to Ohio and back, relaxed on an island paradise, and flew all the way to Michigan! I’ve exhausted, but it’s been so much fun spending time with my friends and meeting their families. Let’s start with my trip to Ohio with the Phelps family. Samuel and I had such a great time together, and I can’t wait for our next adventure together!

KarateWhen I first came home with Samuel, the first thing we did was visit him at his karate class. He got to watch the kids practice their kicks and punches. They are so very strong!

After karate class, we hopped in the car and drove to Ohio with the rest of the family. We drove for 12 hours! And I thought the drive to Florida was long – boy, was I wrong! VALuckily, I can sleep in any place, as I learned with my friend, Cole, so I wasn’t bothered. I slept the entire way, but Samuel thought it was rather long. We stopped on the way to get a photo in Virginia. Doesn’t Samuel look happy?

I didn’t realize how the weather in Ohio is cooler than the weather in North Carolina. PhelpsFamilyReunionI was relieved when we found the hot tub nearby. We stayed nice and toasty warm. The next day, I had the chance to meet all of Samuel’s family, including his cousins. It was a lot of fun. They are a lovely family, warm and welcoming. Thank you to my new friends!

Look for more posts soon! I can’t wait to tell you about my adventures in my hometown, Durham!
