NC Vacation

The night of July 4th Luke and I rode back to NC with Emily and Robby to spend a few days with our family in NC. Like Emily, I do not have any pictures of our time at Rob & Em's, but Luke and I had a blast hanging out with them, eating at our favorite restaurant "Moe's" and going to visit Rob's work.

On Sunday Em drove us down to Greensboro where Ashleigh met us and picked us up. We spent Sunday to Wednesday with Ashleigh, Chris, & Cadence.

It was fun for Luke to get to spend time with Cadence. As you all know Luke is gone most of the time, so he doesn't get to see our nieces and nephew very much. Cadence enjoyed having Luke around, and walked around the house for 4 solid days saying "ALUUUKE".

On Monday afternoon, while Ash & Chris were teaching, Luke and I took Cadence to the park. She is such a "DIVA" and covered her eyes and asked for sunglasses as soon as we stepped out the front door. The best part is that she kept those sunglasses on the entire time we were at the park :)

During our time in NC Asheigh and I did A LOT of scrapbooking! Ash finished her graduation pages for Mom's "Graduation" album, and I did a small "Beach" scrapbook for Mom's B-day. One day Cadence fell backwards into Ash's scrapbooking box... of course we had to take a picture of her before we helped her out :)

Slang was "Itchy" while we were there, so one morning we came downstairs to find him wearing one of Cadence's diapers... Poor Slang :(

The last night we were their Ash & Chris took us to this really cool restaurant called "Cookout". They had incredible milkshakes in every flavor you could imagine (even Watermelon!!)
But the greatest thing about Cookout was their menu... Take a look at their beverages... We all got a good laugh out of the "Huge Tea". (For those of you don't know HUGE is Luke's favorite word, and Cadence has recently started saying it as well!!)
Luke and Chris did a "Guitar Camp" while we were in NC. I will post those pics soon.

Yeah, cookout's good but do you have any idea of the calories in that?? Me either, I googled it but found nothing. I'm sure there's lots though. Every Friday the people in my office get cookout and I had to say no on my first Friday because I couldn't bear to eat so many calories in one meal.
