Erin is a single mom and it has been really fun watching these two little girls, Caden and Delaney, grow up. They were just as smiley and giggly as I imagined.
The boys were hesitant about hanging out with "kindergarten girls" but they all got along like gang busters. Noise and laugh level were at defcon 5 most of the trip. They had so much fun that both boys cried and cried at bedtime when the girls left.
We showed the family various things in the area- the natural history museum, the state fair, Duke gardens and chapel, and the crazy number of parks. And of course, no trip to the area would be complete without pulled pork, biscuits, and Krispy Kremes.
I had planned to take family photos at Duke Garden for them but in the mad rush to get out the door, I forgot my camera! The next morning we went to our local park to take some quick shots and I'm glad we did. So very very glad.
