my parents came to visit! {picture overload}

My parents flew into town last week to escape the heat they're having in California and immerse themselves in our everyday life here in North Carolina. I planned a relaxing few days, with everything we did being something that Bryan and I do on the reg. I really wanted my parents to see what our life is like, living in Charlotte -- We had dinner at North Harbor Club, breakfast at Toast, got pedicures, made Target runs, got take-out from Red Rocks, went boating, took Cali for her final swim in the lake, drove up to wine country to do some wine tasting and even took my parents polka dancing! 


North Harbor Club (notice the lights, lake and boats in the background... this is 5 miles from my house *swoon*)

Lake Norman

Cali's final swim of the year

wine tasting in the NC wine country

 Largest cow we've ever seen!

 There were a couple blips on the screen, but all-in-all, it was a good visit and I'm so looking forward to having my parents AND in-laws out for Christmas!
