One of our first stops was the grocery story, of course. These boys are constantly eating. Austin and Blake did not mind the trip though, because United Supermarket had such a fun cart! Austin really reminds me of me in the picture below. When I am really happy, I get a big, goofy grin on my face and I clasp my hands together. Sometimes I clap a little bit. I basically look like Austin.
FAMILY TIME AT WINDY BLUFF
Austin, Blake and Katy created their own outdoor kitchen on the porch. It was quite the operation and kept them very busy for hours. Thank you BB for having a special draw for kitchen tools for toddlers!
Austin and Katy
On Sunday afternoon it was time to say goodbye to Lewis, Heidi and Katy.
Blake literally go into the car with Katy and did not want to come back out.

HEADING BACK TO CHARLOTTE
Traveling Tip: Stickers make toddlers and mommies happy.
Pocket at the Children s' Theatre of Charlotte
When I saw a theater production advertised for children aged 0 to 3, I was admittedly worried. I had no idea how children that young could possibly be expected to be quiet for more than 60 seconds, much less a entire show. However, I was pleasantly surprised and the set up was wonderful. Everyone was invited to add to the set afterward as well. Austin, Blake and I will definitely be back!
One final picture... Life with toddlers can be a bit of a roller coaster sometimes. Emotions can change moment by moment. The picture below is 10 seconds with Austin. He keeps me on my toes.
