Family Visits

We were lucky enough to spend our holiday weekend visiting family in West Virginia.

The boys fished, swam, played, rode bikes, water slides, and more, all in Grammy and Dad-Dad's back yard! Even Evie got into the boat rides and lake activities.

Here is Evie catching her first fish with dad...

Here are the kids, enjoying their grandparents, and their great grand-ma.

At the River with Friends.

We had a great time on Father's day at the river with some good friends... the water was refreshing, burgers and dogs were grilled to perfection, and everyone had fun.

The kids jumped off the cliff...

And after seeing how much fun it was, Arden wanted to try... and he tried... but couldn't bring himself to take the leap...

We spent the whole day, just hanging out...

 And goofing off.

Not all smiles and fun...

So many times we look at photos and think "oh what a perfect family" or "what a happy child"...

For the most part, we want to project those thoughts into our images... but I have to share one photo of my not so perfect, but perfect none-the-less, daughter. Here is my little fusser-butt in all her glory:

Summer Vacation at Myrtle Beach...

We got to go to Myrtle Beach this past week, and had a blast!

We tend to spend most of our time at the State Parks. It is less crowded, and there are tons of fun things to see and do.

Myrtle Beach State Park is the closest to the house and is fairly isolated, giving the impression that you aren't "in town":

Huntington Beach State Park is another local park that is a ton of fun. They have a Nature Center, marsh lands, and a beautiful beach. Unfortunately while we were there, it was POURING rain, so we didn't get to do as much as we normally do.

We also went to "Broadway at the Beach" and while we were there this summer, Lego's Brickation was there! The kids (and cute hubs) had a blast!

The boys also decided to go in a fountain while we were there... I told them it was only ok IF they didn't get wet... they listened REALLY well.

We also went to Barefoot Landing.

All in all, it was an awesome trip, and we can't wait to go back again!

Birthday Fun

The Big A-man turned 6 this week, I cannot believe how big he has gotten!

For his birthday he got some fun things, including a new 18in bike! Here are a few shots from his first birthday pool party, his first ride, and his first wreck!

I'm so proud of my big guy.

Summer Begins...

This is the weekend that we all associate with summer; the pools open, picnics start, and schools start to end. Our boys have one more week left of school, but for us, the summer fun has begun!

Our Memorial Day weekend didn't quite start out as we had planned... on Thursday we headed out to the Davidson River Campground to get a camping site, and to spend our weekend relaxing on the river. Well, when we arrived, it was full. All 164 "first come- first serve" sites had been taken, which NEVER happens on Thursday, always early on fridays... We didn't let this phase us though, and drove over to North Mills River Campground, but it was the same, no vacancy. We decided to try Lake Powhatan, but again, they were full!

We spent 4.5 hours in the car looking for a site, to no avail.

But we didn't let that phase us. The kids pitched tents in the back yard, we lit up the fire pit, and we had "campfire stew" (foil packets filled with veggies and meat, cooked over the coals of the fire). Since then, we have filled the weekend with friends, fun, and festivities!

Yesterday we went to the Cradle of Forestry, and hung out with friends. Here is a sequence of shots of Rory jumping from a 12-15ft rock on the Davidson River, he did it once, but refused the second and third times he climbed up, apparently it scared him a little! LOL!

 And here is a random of Evie from the shore while we watched big brother.
