Girls weekend in North Carolina (plus my brother in law)

A couple weeks ago I got to spend the weekend with my sister (Nikki), brother-in-law (Andrew), and two nieces (Ayla & Mia)! I had a blast relaxing and getting waited on at their awesome house! Andrew was sick that weekend so he stayed in Atlanta. I felt bad leaving him for the weekend, especially because we only have one car (he ended up riding the bus to the dr. while I was gone). At the same time, it was nice to be out of our apartment and away from all the germs :) Here are some pictures that I took on my phone while I was there. 
Ayla and Mia

Nikki is the best baker and she rocks an awesome baking business here in Charlotte! I requested these peanut butter pretzel chocolate chip cookies. They were amazing

Sweet Mia
Brought this book for Mia. 


Ayla and I 
I got there on Friday just in time to enjoy some delicious veggie lasagna and homemade bread. Andrew's mom Nan who lives in Atlanta currently, but just retired and is moving to NC, was there for the weekend as well. She is so fun to be around. We all talked and watched tv for a while and then went to bed around 9pm (This is becoming a routine these days)! 

While the girls went to gymnastics with Nan and Andrew, Nik and I took a long walk around the neighborhood! It felt so good to be outside and in the sun no less! We met the rest of the gang for lunch and then back home for a nap and more relaxing. Ayla told me all about her upcoming trip to D.C. and her science fair project.  I had so much fun spending time with the girls, I plan to see them as often as I can. 

French braided the girls' hair for their big super bowl party, ate some breakfast, packed up and hit the road. It was so good to be with family!
