On the fifty-fourth day of summer...

an early morning thunderstorm cancelled our plans to go horseback riding.

We all went in to Asheville, instead to visit my sister-in-law. The surgery went well, and now it's just a waiting game to see how she heals up.

After that, we had lunch at Mellow Mushroom, then split up to wander downtown Asheville a bit while the kids and dads went bowling.

Later in the evening, the kids had the idea to do water balloons, and the best part is that they did it all themselves!

Filled them up:



Tied them:



And threw them!



Ryan with his cousins Rachel & Kate:


We had two levels of decks at our cabin and the older ones were having fun tossing little water balloons up to Jillian:


Can't have a cute shot of one kid without a cute shot of the other:


Then the kids went up and I threw balloons at...I mean to them:


My mom & dad came up from Charlotte (since it's only 2 hours away) to spend a few nights in Asheville themselves. They had dinner and hung out with us tonight. Mom and I got Jillian ready for bed:


She looks ready for bed, right?



Like I said, she's not really ready for bed.


Plus, she wanted to watch everyone play with the telescope Mr. Toby brought with them:



And then it was time or the highlight of the evening, margaritas and bingo!


We all gathered at the Tiki Bar at the Brach/Hinton cabin:


and Suzanne was the bartender:


But her mom was the bingo caller:

Toby and Garrett:


Grandad and Alex:

Ryan and Scott:
