Weekend in New Bern

This past weekend, we packed a bag and headed to New Bern to visit Eddie's parents :) New Bern is such a special town: so many pieces of southern history with the Neuse and Trent rivers as a beautiful backdrop.

We spent Saturday dodging April rain showers and walking around the quaint downtown scene. We were in New Bern less than 36 hours, but we managed to pack in as much fun as we possibly could! We visited Tryon Palace; walked the historic homes tour; ate at the famous Bakers Kitchen (which was amazing & their squash casserole is to die for!); indulged in delicious cupcakes from Bear City Fudge Company; wandered around the local Farmer's Market; searched for treasures at Black Swan flea market and Poor Charlie's antiques; sipped a soda at the Birthplace of Pepsi; hid eggs for an Easter egg hunt; and tried to spot as many of the colorful New Bern bears as we could!

Just a few of our favorite spots and snaps from the weekend...

My mother-in-law is an amazing cook and we were lucky to enjoy several of her delicious homemade meals, including a few of Eddie's favorites! We also made Cinnamon Roll Waffles for the first time and oh.my.goodness. Scrumptious. 

Such a great weekend! Already looking forward to going back :)

keep in touch!
