We finally had a break from doctors and spent a marvelous weekend in North Carolina visiting with my family. First, we went to Raleigh on Friday and Saturday to stay with my son, Barry, MaryAnne and Thomas.

When we arrived, we found Thomas and a friend playing games on the computer. (Thomas is the red head.)

Last weekend, Barry and MaryAnne took advantage of “Cash for Clunkers” and traded their old ’93 Pathfinder for a new Pontiac Vibe. Wow.
My how the baby chicks have grown. I think they have about six. They said the chicks have finally started earning their keep and they have not bought eggs in weeks. I love this picture!!

On Friday evening, we went out to dinner at 42nd Street in downtown Raleigh.

We all had delicious seafood dinners, except MaryAnne who ate tacos. I had great fried catfish; Thomas had calamari, and Barry and Ken had the chef’s special creation of blackened grouper over a bed of mixed salad greens. So sorry I did not get a picture of that unusual dish. But, Thomas did get pictures of signs he saw on the bathroom wall and thought they were worth memorializing!!

That's Thomas and Barry in the mirror!

On Saturday morning, we drove over to a nearby park and introduced Barry and MaryAnne to Pickleball. They had never played before and it was a lot of fun to finally get them on the court to play. Forgot my camera again, so we took pictures in the back yard with our paddles.

Here are Barry and MaryAnne, thrilled to be presented with official PICKLES!!
