Last weekend was full of dadventures because my dad came to visit! Highlights included recreating the Krispy Kreme Challenge, checking out the Norman Rockwell exhibit at the NC Museum of Art, breakfast at the Raleigh Farmer’s Market, eating delicious German food for dinner and walking at Umstead Park.

Here are photos of some of the highlights. First up: the Krispy Kreme Challenge. Don’t worry, we split one donut instead of each eating a dozen, I have no idea how people can do that and keep running!






I’m embarrassed to say that I’ve lived in Raleigh for almost 2 years and had not noticed the Bell Tower before … as you can see, it’s kind of tall and hard to miss.

Art in the Park at the museum, which is a greenway/sculpture garden. So cool!

And after all that fun, dad left 😦

It was fun playing tour guide, and we did some things I’ve been wanting to do for awhile. I’ve challenged dad to come up with adventures for when I’m home over Christmas – stay tuned to see what he comes up with 🙂
