Fun with Daddy in North Carolina

Matt has been flying a lot lately, which means us not seeing him very much. This past week after being gone on a four day trip, then home one day and then leaving again on another four day trip, Mattie and I decided since he couldn't come home to us, we would have to go to him! He had an extended lay-over in Charlotte, NC. We flew up on Wednesday night and spent all day Thursday hanging out with him. We were going to rent a car, but the prices were a little outrageous because of the basketball tournament going on. Instead we just did the taxi/bus thing and went to the mall. We walked around the mall for awhile and then got lunch. It was getting close to Mattie's nap time and she was acting very tired, so we decided to walk down the block to go check out a movie. It was beautiful outside and along the way we saw some wonderful trees with white blossoms on them. It looked like "popcorn popping" on those trees, and since that is Miss Mattie's favorite song, of course we had to sing it as we walked down the street! The movie was a little lame and Mattie actually stayed awake to watch the whole thing. After a few more adventures we finally ended back at the hotel for the night. The next morning we accompanied Matt to the airport, us heading home to FL, him heading off to Cincinnati. Even though his day was filled with the typical delays, he made it home just in time for the Deseret Ranch Rodeo (stay tuned for that post, possibly tomorrow).

I can't wait to show this to the kids tomorrow. They'll love seeing MoMo! She's such a doll. I'm glad you got a full day with Matt. You got some fun pictures. We still have a few weeks until the blossoms to show up here. They are so pretty and cheery....can't wait!

What movie did you see?

We went to the only movie that was playing at the time we got there, and it was College Road Trip. Seriously the best part of the movie was Donny Osmond! But, I guess Mattie kind of liked it, since she did stay awake to watch it.
