After picking up Grandma at the airport we headed to The Pit for a Wounded Warrior Project event. The kids had a blast racing go-karts, playing laser tag and tackling the rock climbing wall-- and Grandma really was there even though she's not in the pictures.
One of the best parts of Grandma coming to town is that Jacob and I can get out for a date night! The sunset as we crossed Lake Norman was BEAUTIFUL and we enjoyed a delicious dinner at Smoke Modern Barbeque before seeing a movie.
When Grandpa got into town, we went to Wink's Barbecue for dinner and Barbecue Center for colossal banana splits for dessert!
Poor Ellie! We thought it would be fun to stick her with the giant bear at Costco-- she did NOT agree!!
