This week, Seth's parents took us to North Carolina to visit Seth's son Chandon for his 3rd birthday. This trip, we flew into Charlotte, where Chandon lives then drove to the Asheville area. It is up in the Blue Ridge mountains and is really beautiful. Chandon had a pirate themed birthday party in the park which was a lot of fun. Here he is thoroughly enjoying a corn-dog.This is Holden, Chandon's baby brother, looking super cute for the camera.
Opening presents with his mom, Jessica, and grandma, Sue.The next day, we went to the Biltmore estate which is a huge and magnificent mansion. It makes Hearst Castle look little. Grandpa John and Grandma Kim with Chandon in the yard at our bed and breakfast.Relaxing on the porch swing. And, as it happens, God has decided to bless my life by having my sister Kate and her husband John move to North Carolina as well, so we get to see them as well every-time we go out to see Chandon! Two for one trips! She and John drove 4 hours to come see us in Asheville and we appreciate it very much. It was really nice to see them again. I miss them.
Enjoying his new camera which takes real digital pictures that you can download! How cool!

Enjoying being able to bounce around on the beds at the hotel.
It was a very fun and exhausting trip. Three year olds have SO much energy! It's fun to see how much he has learned in the 6 months since we've seen him. Thanks to John and Kim for taking us and to Jessica and co. for entertaining us! We had a fantastic time.
