Nina and Big Daddy's Visit

Nina and Big Daddy came this weekend for a visit. They arrived on Friday afternoon, just as naps were ending....the kids were thrilled and absolutely wild to see who had come! We hung out for the afternoon and then headed to chapel hill for Fridays on the Front Porch at the Carolina Inn. The kids didn't do quite as much dancing as normal, but they tackled Big Daddy constantly! The weather was perfect as we enjoyed a picnic and some bluegrass! (thanks for the pictures christa!)

Mikey and Brent got to go play some golf on Saturday morning - they enjoyed their manly bonding! Brent always is thrilled when he gets to spend a morning on the golf course! Mom and I took the kids to the pool so she could see avery's mad swimming skills! Avery enjoyed getting to show off to Nina!

Saturday night we actually had an adult evening out!! This rarely happens in our household so I was probably more excited than anyone!!! We had an incredible dinner at the Angus Barn in Raleigh. Its an old barn that has been transformed into a nice steak house and lounge. We had a long, delicious dinner and then took a tour of the wine cellar. so cool!
Thanks for a wonderful weekend Nina and Big Daddy! We loved it! See you next month!
