Quick Visit

On our way home from the beach we stopped at Mitzi's house for a night to pick up Grammy and Papa. We went to church in Raleigh which is always a treat since it is next to a temple. It was so cute to watch Connor just in love with Charly. He hugged on her like he is in the picture for most of church too. Lucy was not in a happy mood, that's why she is not in the group picture, but pouting on the bench. She does not handle being out of her normal routine that well.

We took Grammy and Papa for a quick driving tour of Richmond. We stopped downtown near Brown's Island and walked out over top of the James River. It was a gorgeous evening.

Grammy and Papa read the girls some stories and they all loved every minute of it.

Chuck took them to the airport at 4am Monday morning to catch a flight home. Their visit was short and sweet. We really appreciate them making an effort to visit us, even it is for only a day or two.


  1. Looks like Mitzi got a hold of the Gates' girls hair! Love it!

  2. Leland of course picked out a big bow from Mitzi's collection to wear to church. I asked Leland if she wanted me to make her some big bows like that for her to wear at home, and she replied, "No, That would be too much work for you."

  3. oh my gosh, how cute is your little girl not wanting to make you have some work! Don't worry. We will take care of it! :)
