Labor Day Weekend

We had a great time over the long weekend. Our friends Adam and Natina Gardner from TBS came to visit from Virginia Beach where Adam is at the F-18 RAG. We were hoping to go up there, but Steven supposedly had to work, but at the last minute got canceled. We had fun just hanging out and watching football, the OSU game was showing here, which was awesome. Steven and Adam decided to do a garage project, and they built shelving for the garage, which gives us more space. It looks great!

Monday, we went to Wilmington for some family fun time and some shopping! We first had to stop by Chick-fil-a for our free chicken strips if you wear collegiate logo.

Here are some pics:

We also went to Jungle Rapids. It was a fun arcade/water park that has a super cool indoor play area. The play area is huge, and the girls had so much fun playing together. Gracie kept getting stuck in the mazes of tunnels and Steven had to go get her. We don't know why she is such a scaredy cat of slides. She cried and cried when we left, she was having such a good time. Emma loved the big ball pit. She kept sinking lower and lower until she was almost covered!

In the afternoon, we went to TJ Maxx and bought a beautiful painting for our living room. I'll post pics later.....We then ate dinner at Dockside, a seafood restaurant right on Cape Fear river. It was really good, but pricey. Every time we spend more than $50.00 on dinner, we always regret it. It's just food....we would have rather spent that money on stuff for our house. It was fun though, the girls did really good....and big news.....Gracie went on the potty three times while we were out. She usually is terrified of the big potties, but she did great! Gracie was cracking us up....she was so hungry at dinner, she kept stealing food off Steven's plate. She loved his clam chowder and corn on the cob. She ate both of his pieces.

We had such a great weekend, and some great family fun time. We are treasuring these moments because it won't be long until Steven is deployed. Will post more later....
