We took a weekend away last weekend for the first time in years. We surprised the kids (with only a few days notice) that we were heading to Charlotte, NC to visit the American Girls store, the Lego store, and Disney store. And for the parents, we made a day at IKEA our thing.
Sadly, we didn’t really plan for any sightseeing except for our drive around the city from place to place. I think we’d enjoy more time there to explore so long as the heat stayed at bay. At any rate, here are some photos of the weekend…
Of note, though, I was a little upset with the Charlotte IKEA not having their “authentic” food bar (or whatever it’s actually called) as I was really hoping to get some pickled herring or lutefisk. However, I didn’t walk out completely empty handed.

^ Selfie time…

^ And the best find of the trip? Yes! Pickled herring.
