This past Friday my mom and sister Jessica came for a quick weekend visit.  We got up on Saturday and mom made pancakes while Jessica entertained the kids, then it was off to The Peach Stand, one of my favorite places in the Charlotte area.

They have all kinds of homemade jellies and preserves, as well as a multitude of other things.  Mom really wanted some fresh peaches, but the strawberries looked better, so we bought some (they were deliciously sweet and juicy).  I also bought some Strawberry Rhubarb jelly - delicious.  As we were leaving we noticed an outdoor stand across the street, and it turned out to be an extension of The Peach Stand.  Mom found some good peaches there, according to the kids.

We then took Logan for a haircut and stopped in Books a Million so I could get Joey a Father's Day present since the kids weren't going to be here on the actual day.  I got him a book by Dave Ramsey, a money advisor he's obsessed with watching on the Fox Business Network.  (He loved it, by the way.)

We then stopped at Target so Aunt Gessa could buy the kids some gifts for their birthdays.  Logan chose a Dale Jr. truck pulling a Dale Jr. racecar. Shocking.  Gracie chose a Polly Pocket set that comes with different outfits for Polly. 

We came home and rested for a bit before heading out to the neighborhood pool.  The kids loved showing off for Grammy and Gessa, but they were worn out by the time we got home.  We grilled hot dogs and finally put the kids to bed around 9:30.

On Sunday morning I finished packing the kids up to send to Kentucky with Grammy, to be delivered at Mawmaw's house.  They were super excited to be going and eager to get in the car.  I managed to snap a couple of pictures before they left.
And as they were leaving.
It's been very quiet in the house since they left, but I know they're having a great time with their cousins.  And they'll be home before I know it.
