A Carter Weekend

As some of you know, Ben's mom & brother came to visit us last weekend.  It was such a blessing to have family come visit us in our new home.  The weekend can pretty much be summed up in three words: 
 Lighthearted. Relaxing. Coffee.
Ok, a lot of delicious food was involved too, so maybe I can't sum it up so easily, but the combination of all these things for a very memorable visit :) 
Hope you enjoy a few pictures of our weekend fun! 

my three tall family members. we walked pretty much the whole trip.  it's a must when you eat a lot of good food.

our first coffee pit of many :)

sweet pictures of the reflection of an airplane in our siphoned cup of coffee.  yes siphoned.  look it up.

sleepy bob.

If you haven't already surmised from the picture of that tired pup, it was a pretty fun & event-filled weekend.

A few highlights:  tasting all the best coffees in the area, homemade eucalyptus mint candles, priceless & sweet time with family, good bbq, finding a toms store, long walks & movies at night, finding a local restaurant & tea shop that makes my heart {and tummy} happy.
