This weekend the boy and I got the chance to go up to Charlotte to celebrate my friend's birthday. She and her husband just moved to Charlotte and I could not be more excited to have them much much closer!
To celebrate, we all met up at the U.S. National Whitewater Center. This facility opened in 2006 and is the olympic training center for whitewater slalom racing. Not only does it have whitewater rafting, but it has rock-climbing, trails for hiking/running, ropes courses and more.
We finished the day with a wonderful meal at Mimosa Grill where I had their famous Ppecan-crusted trout. I can definitely see why it's one of their most popular meals!
