Sunday, we all went to Chapel Hill for the Festifall. Here's Jason with our niece Anna getting an alpaca wool bracelet.
Even the adults got in on the fun. That's Jason's brother (Katie and Anna's dad) for those of you who are unable to recognize him from this angle.
And finally, we hit up Loco Pops for some fresh made popsicles. Anna was especially thankful for her chocolate bounty. (She was really watching as Jason and Erica exchanged popsicles over her head but we thought it was funny that it looked like she was giving thanks to Big JC.)
It's good to be back. Really really good.
***Edited to add***
Something just reminded me of the best "out of the mouths of babes" moment of the weekend: My sister-in-law is pregnant and we were all at her house over the weekend. At one point, Katie put her hands on my stomach and asked "Are you going to have a baby too?" I told her "not yet". (Though I was thinking, "Perhaps I should lay off the cheezeburgers.")
Later, Katie and I were looking for the cat and as we went into the room that is rapidly approaching nursery status, Katie - in all seriousness - says to me, "You're lucky you're not having a baby. You know why? Because they're LOUD. And they wake you up at night." Count on a five-year-old to tell it like it is...
