A Visit With the A-Team

We had a visit with the A-team, which is what my cousin calls her family because all of their names begin with the letter "A."
The weekend just went by way too fast! It always does when you have a limited time to spend with people you rarely get to see.
The A-team arrived late Thursday night. We stayed up talking even later. It was great! Here's a pic of Angie and mom....or "Aunt Nanny" as Angie's always called her.

Art pointed out that he and Angie have been married twenty-five years. Yep twenty-five years and this is the first time I've seen him since shortly after their wedding. He and Bruce just met over Thanksgiving and clicked right away. It was nice to see our hubbies getting along so good.

Yes.....Yes, I am wearing a Mr. T t-shirt. I didn't think about it until I titled this post that Mr. T was part of the original A-team. I have to admit that he was one of my favorite characters on that show. It was my dad's t-shirt. And yeah...I bought it for him. :)

*sigh* My offspring.....'nuff said.

This was the morning we took them to the airport before they left to go back home to Alaska. Art had to leave on an earlier flight. At first they weren't sure he would be able to make it on the trip, but it worked out for him to come. But there weren't any seats on his family's flight. So he had to leave in the wee morning hours.
Left to right: Angie, Allison, Ashley, and Ari. Love you all!

Friday night we took them to Krispy Kreme and then to see the lights in McAdenville. The trees around the lake have always been my favorite spot in McAdenville. Thousands of lights in this small mill community. It's a tradition to go see their lights every year.

I had a good time. I got out and walked with my kids for a while. The cold air was crisp and refreshing! Loved it!
So we had a great time with the A-team. We hope to see them again soon. :)
