In-law Visit

We have had a very nice visit with Myron's family. They arrived Friday night before I ever had dinner on the table. The girls were able to open their presents and start playing with some of the items. They got lots of accessories to go with their American Girl dolls.
On Saturday, we went to Chimney Rock. It turned out to be such a nice day. It started out very foggy but eventually cleared up enough that we could see beyond our noses.
A very nice lady agreed to take a picture of us all together with the clouds behind us. It was so beautiful up there.
Kathy set the timer on her camera to take this one. She only had 10 seconds to get in position. She almost tripped. We were laughing which made this the perfect picture. We all look so happy together don't we? Thanks to Kathy almost busting her tail. Not funny ... really.
The 400 foot Hickory Nut Waterfall. Just amazing. A scene from Last of the Mohicans was filmed at these falls.
That night for dinner we went to one of our favorite restaurants, Tupelo Honey Cafe. I can't believe we haven't taken them there before. It is so yummy. It has been featured in Southern Living and on Fine Living channel.
On Sunday, we attended church where there seemed to be more visitors than regulars. It was a very nice service about the Holy Family. We had a visiting priest whose parents are parishioners of St. Eugene. He did such a wonderful job. We had lunch at one of our favorite Mexican restaurants. Then did a little shopping. Kathy was looking for a TV and was lucky enough to find one in her price range at Circuit City. Yeah, Kathy!!!
That concludes the short visit with the in-laws. They will be pulling out of here tomorrow morning. Then Myron and I will both head off to work. I hope to bribe my kids with lunch and a movie if they behave while I am at work. We will see out it goes.
My thankful thought is Visiting Priests. Sometimes you just need a change from the same ol' same ol'. We love Fr. John. But it is nice to hear someone else on occasions.
