North Carolina for the Holiday

Friday, November 28th, 2008
We flew into North Carolina on Monday.  Travel was uneventful.  Staying with family for the holiday.  Just hanging around eating too much and playing a lot of Wii.  We actually finally found one for ourselves… Yeah Black Friday:)

We have had a lot of fun playing Wii.  Even Joanne and Stan are becoming addicted.

Carri, Chase, Kim, and Chris went to a Hurricane game while Mike cooked with mom.  The game was fun but they lost…
Thanksgiving was very nice.  A good time was had by all and Mike did a great job on the dinner.  We have been enjoying spending time with family doing a variety of activities.  Chase had hockey practice which Chris, Grandma, and Grandpa enjoyed watching.  Mike, Carri, Chase, Kim, and Carri’s brother Brad went ice skating on Sunday.  It was a succcessful trip as we all returned without incident.  Back to work for Mike and Carri on Monday but Chase spent the day with us and we did some touring of local parks in the area.  We stopped by Bond Park which Chase likes to visit in the summer to go fishing and rent paddle boats.  The day was quite chilly so there was no water sports involved.  We decided to head to another park called Hemlock Bluffs Nature Preserve where we took a few short hikes.  Have to make the most of each day.

 It was great spending time with Barry and Nancy.  Had dinner at their house then did breakfast and a hike with Stan, Joanne, and Chase.  They showed us one of the lakes that they spend time at boating and camping.
