Steve, Rosie and the kids came to visit us in North Carolina during part of their week-long vacation. The kids were so happy to be together. They never get enough "cousin time." As hard as it may be to believe, they were relatively calm when together and even went to bed at a reasonable hour each night!

Ryan was able to take Monday off while they were here. He, Steve and Zach went golfing. While the guys were off golfing Rosie, Sandy, Alaina, Nathan, Audrey and I went to Chimney Rock.
We ate lunch, went hiking, took a bunch of pictures, (some) got wet in the waterfall and
saw some water snakes!

On Tuesday (after Ryan went to work) the rest of us headed out to some new adventure that we have never experienced...we went to Looking Glass Falls and Sliding Rock in the Pisgah National Forest.

After our day full of fun. We had Nathan's new favorite meal
white pasta (Chicken Fettucini Alfredo).
Steve and Rosie gave him an early birthday party because we
won't be together for his birthday.

I have a hundred more pictures I would love to post but I can see this post is long enough. Thanks everyone for a great time!
