Carter and Lea recently went to visit Carter's first friend, Mia, and her parents. Lea and Joanna met in water aerobics while pregnant, and Carter and Mia were born 11 days apart. They spent a great deal of time together until Mia moved away at 15 months. They were babysat together, slept in strollers while their moms walked, and played on the Herron living room floor.
Most recently, Mia moved to Tulsa, Oklahoma. Carter was excited to visit her, as he has recently learned his states and was fascinated by the idea of seeing another state (#10).
The kids had a great deal of fun playing, swimming, bathing together, and visiting the aquarium in Tulsa. A planned visit to the zoo was canceled when a huge storm came in on Sunday, knocking out electricity, and blowing down many large branches. Carter is looking forward to returning some time in the future and playing with "Miss Mia."
