More adventures with Grandma and Grandpa

We have had such a great visit with Andrew's parents. It's going to be hard to let them go home. It's too much fun with them here!

Yesterday, we went on a little hike at the Piedmont Environmental Center. It's the same place that Cindy and I got lost with the kids, but this time I was a better navigator, and we managed to avoid another disaster. :)

During Whitney's nap, Barb and I went shopping for some new clothes for the kids. We were very successful and found some CUTE outfits for both Brandon and Whitney. Brandon didn't pose for me, but here is Whitney modeling a couple of her outfits.

I love her in turtlenecks!
Actually, I love her in everything.
But she really looks cute in turtlenecks.

Barb couldn't resist when we found these
adorable cowgirl boots and outfit at Old Navy.
Whitney turned lots of heads when she wore
them around town today.

After Brandon got home from another good day at school, we went mini golfing. He's gone a handful of times before and normally does really well. He was a little impatient today and kept going one or two holes ahead of us and we'd have to tell him to wait for us. Then he'd get as close to the water hazards as he could without falling in while waiting.

We had to keep reminding Brandon to PUTT
the ball. Don't hit it as hard as you can!

Say Cheese!

After we finished golf, we thought it would be fun to try out the go-karts. I had done them before at a birthday party, so I sat out and took pics while the others raced. They had a great time, especially Brandon--the future NASCAR driver.

"And Dennis takes the lead...but not for long"

Barb had a definite disadvantage because
Whitney got freaked out if she tried to go fast.

Often when we are spending time with our parents, we are sharing them with all of the other grandkids, so it was nice to have them to ourselves for the past week. They'll be heading back to Utah early in the morning. But I think we had such a great time that they'll come to see us again. Hopefully soon.

Oh, I'm jealous! It looks like you guys had a lot of fun. Whitney is just too cute in those outfits! I love shopping with Grandma because you always end up getting the cutest stuff that you'd usually not buy on your own.

How fun! I just picked up Mom and Dad today from the airport and they had such a good time. I would love to come to North Carolina again and stay at the beach. SO much fun.

Love you guys!
