A Royal Weekend!

One of Joe's Best Friends from Atlanta, Dr. King came to visit us this weekend. He took Joe in when he was at Georgia Tech and has been like a Grandfather to us. Erin is actually named after him, as he is Dr. Aaron King. Maybe one day she'll take on the Dr. part too! We always have such a great time when he comes up even though it is such a short visit. Last year when he was here Anna was still cooking, so this was their first meeting.

We had a delicious dinner at our home on Friday and just spent time as a family. Then on Saturday we headed to IHOP and then the beach which was cut short by rain. Luckily the sun came out again Sat. night and we were able to eat outside at the beach. After church today we dined at the Founder's Inn. SO you can tell our favorite thing to do with Dr. King is eat! I think we all gained at least 5 pounds and Erin discovered she loves popcorn shrimp - that's my girl!

Here are way too many pictures, but I just can't narrow them down. It's only once a year we get him all to ourselves, so we have to soak it in. He and Erin share a special bond and she just loves him to pieces, he even got to snuggle with her on the couch which isn't something we even get to do! Hopefully Anna will take to him just as well in the future, right now it's a momma only phase!
