A Southern Sojourn

Monday, June 2, 2008

Dh has taken leave for a couple of weeks so last weekend we finally made the trip down to NC to visit his family. It had been several months since we'd been to Mamaw and Papaw's house in Asheboro and the kids were thrilled. We went out for a steakhouse dinner Friday night, then crashed from the exhaustion of trying to entertain and appease 3 weary, wiggly, whiny, kids on the 5 hour car ride. As we nestled all snug in our beds, we were serenaded by the belching bull frogs that had taken up residence near the family pool. The rest of the weekend brought a little league game, a birthday party, tractor rides, some pool time and even a little free babysitting! Dh and I managed to steal away for an hour or so and a cuppa joe...the closest thing to a date we've had in eons! All in all it was a great weekend in the great state of NC.
