On Wednesday 16th November, we dropped Charlotte to school and then went to a shoe warehouse - 2 pair of boots for $70 -not bad!! then off to the Cheesecake Factory for lunch with Katie, her sister & friend (also visiting from Aust)& Treena and her Mum (also visiting from Perth). The lunch was great and the Cheesecakes are unbelieveable !!Thursday afternoon was Charlottte's Dance class. It was supposed to be visitors day, but to my dismay it was cancelled !! Luckily however, Jenn mentioned that I was visiting from Australia, and they made an exception for me and I was allowed to sit in on the class. It was really cute watching them, and in particular Charlotte going through the various ballet positions, and then changing into their tap shoes - How does one explain to a group of under 5's that they can't tap all the time!!
Friday was school again for Charlotte, and when we collected her we headed on a road trip to North Carolina, about 4hrs drive from Virginia Beach. We stayed the night in Rahleigh, and the following morning headed for Durham to see the Radio City Christmas Spectacular
We all thoroughly enjoyed the show - Charlotte was enthrawled by the dancers as was Victoria, but only for a short time!! She slept the entire 2 nd half of the show on my shoulder. After driving around the city for a while , we decided to make our way home
