Care Package #8: Hometown

All of the care packages I have sent to Daniel in Virginia were just practice for the real care packages he would be receiving in Korea.  After three weeks in Korea he finally got an address and I was able to send him his first overseas package.  Not to brag, but I'm pretty sure it made his day.  

For his first package I wanted to try to bring home to him by making a hometown package.  If Exeter could be known for anything, it would be the water tower, so I made sure it was included in the decorations.

The box was filled with some of his favorite foods, America and Exeter themed items, and things he forgot...
Red Bull
Cracker jacks
Local newspapers
Beef jerkey
Granola cereal
Mug decorated with pictures
Jolly ranchers
Exeter T-shirt
Exeter postcard

Not pictured:
M&M snack mix
Mac and Cheese
and a few things he forgot at home like
sunglasses, headphones, etc.

I already have two more boxes ready to go... I think I have a care package addiction problem...
