Brace Family Visit July 2010

My parents, brother Chad and sister-in-law Sarah drove here from Michigan with my parents' dog, Milo and a pop-up camper. They camped at the Bent Creek Campgrounds which is technically part of the Pisgah National Forest. It is only 10 minutes from our house and there is a small lake there, Lake Powhatan. The campground is different than any other campground I have seen before but it turned out okay though I am not sure they would choose to camp there again.

This summer has been a rather rainy summer here in North Carolina and so to provide an appropriate North Carolina summer experience mother nature was sure to keep up the tradition as it rained nearly every day there were here. Unfortunately I only have a few pictures as the pics I downloaded from Chad and Sarah's camera seem to be lost from Nathan's computer crash.
In anticipation of their arrival Nathan and Audrey took it upon themselves to go into the food storage room and decided we needed to make two desserts -
Triple Chunk muffins and Triple Chunk brownies.

Bubble fun with Grandma Karen

Art projects with Aunt Sarah

Hopefully I will be able to get my hands on the other pictures again soon. There were some nice ones of Chad and all three kids.

Activities while they were here: Swimming at Lake, Powhatan paddle boats on Lake Julian, art projects, a trip to Barnes and Noble (sponsored by Uncle Chad and Aunt Sarah), ice cream, just hanging out at the camp ground, over nights for Nathan and Audrey (separately of course).
