One Quick Trip

We piled everybody and almost everything we owned in the car yesterday and zipped off to Charlotte for a whirlwind visit with Steve's family. Andy and Luke actually sat still for 3 minutes without hitting each other this afternoon and now I have the picture to prove it. They were very cooperative for our impromptu photo op, such sweet boys. Sometimes.
Eli was able to meet his grandparents for the first time, what a treat. Given our adventures this last year, we didn't come to any family gatherings. Someone mentioned this was the first time in more than 2 years that we were all together. Wow.

The cousins chased each other almost non-stop. Mariah was in a musical so the chasing ceased for a few hours so we could see her performance. My boys were up at 6am today, begging to wake their cousins up. The festivities began again once the sun was up. We intervened with aunt Holly's famous chocolate chip pancakes and a full spread for brunch, then they were back to their usual tricks right away. What a joy to have a wide variety of ages that play so well together. Can't wait to see what happens when Eli is in the mix.
