Two months ago, our youngest son Kyler and his family (our daughter-in-law Kara, and precious grandbabies 7-month-old Lucy, and 2 1/2-year-old Abram) resettled from Cincinnati to the Charlotte area.

Kyler's career with Procter & Gamble brought him to work in Charlotte.  Don't ask me what he does...something about financial analysis and P&G products in Family Dollar stores...all I know is he has a good job that he enjoys and they are happy.  What more can a mama ask for?!  Well...except the obvious, that they didn't live so far away....

They bought a nice home in a neighborhood just across the border in South Carolina...

...complete with a wonderful fenced backyard for the children.  And adults.

Kyler picked us up at the airport, and when we arrived the babies were still napping. When Abram woke up, I went to get him out of bed. He greeted me with a big, heart-melting grin and then immediately wanted to "see my airplane."  He went downstairs as fast as he could, thinking an airplane was parked in his driveway! How I hated to disappoint him...

We spent wonderful moments just hanging around the house and playing with the grandbabies!

When in the birthplace of Krispy Kreme donuts, of course one MUST indulge in the local fare...

Saturday morning we went to nearby Rock Hill and visited a charming little children's museum there (although it was more like a play/discovery place than the traditional museum).

Abram loved it!

Alright...to be honest, BOTH the "little" boys loved it!

Lucy was a little young, but she was a good sport!

Afterwards, lunch at a local pizza place...

Kim and Kyler were quite adventurous, ordering the seafood pizza. Kara and I stuck to the traditional toppings...there's just something wrong in my mind with octopus and squid on a pizza.....

 

Kykra-126

Kykra-124

Ice cream is always in order...even after dark on a November night...

Sunday morning, up bright and early to go to church! 

 

Kykra-142

Kyler and Kara have found a new church home at Transformation Church in Indian Land, South Carolina.

 

Kykra-157

It's a very large non-denominational, multi-cultural church...

 

Kykra-159

...with a dynamic pastor, Derwin Gray, a former NFL player who actually played a few years for the Indianapolis Colts before becoming a Carolina Panther.

 

Kykra-143

Kykra-147

Sunday afternoon playtime and naps for all!

Then supper at a local BBQ place.

 

Kykra-59

A wonderful few days, but not nearly long enough...

...with the Carolina Grays.
