Staycation First Outing

Hello All!

Spring has officially sprung in the Queen City with temps in the 90's today I would say that it is more like summer.

Gouda is officially on spring break, so our staycation began today.

We were planning a trip to Indianapolis but decided that it may be better to wait until the summertime. So enter the staycation idea. We wanted to do something, but didn't want to spend an arm and a leg so we decided to tour our hometown Charlotte.

Charlotte's Trolley Transit System

On our first outing we visited Imaginon. It's a really cool Children's only library and theater. Imaginon is located uptown surrounded by fabulous little eateries.

The Loft (teenager's library)

We had lunch at Reids Fine Foods which is located directly across the street from Imaginon. Reids is a great eatery, wine shop, and deli. They also carry specialty North Carolina sundries. We really enjoyed our lunch here. I am so cheesy that I am including a picture of our lunch at Reids.

Our lunch plate, we all had the same thing, so cheesy!

All in all it was a terrific day. Gotta go plan another outing. I am thinking about the Zoo!
