Farewell to Summer!

Well, it looks like summer left us a little early this year. Maybe will get a quick glimpse of it sometime in September. Last week we did some fun things to prepare for the end of summer, so here's one post with several different activities! It sure was a good summer one I think we'll always remember!

Spontaneous homemade pizza party with the Judds and Saunders. All the daddy's had work engagements that night so it was pizza and skinny dippin' for us. (that's a frozen yogurt place!)
Yummy - the kids liked choosing all their toppings!
Blueberry picking - we made it out to Pungo for the last day of the season. Boy were they yummy!
Cody and Erin took this picking thing very seriously and were quite proud of their accomplishments.
Look at this bathing, sand-eating beauty. That bathing suit was mine when I was a little girl, can you believe it. Makes me remember not to consign everything so my girls can pass on special outfits to their daughters!
My Beach Babes!
They think she hung the moon!
Carter gets to hang with the big kids now!
Erin's cousins came in for the day on Sunday and she had the best time with them.

That was EASY!

This is a silly post, but worth mentioning. I went back to the eye doctor today because my new contacts weren't fitting right and were blurry most of the time. He said they looked fine and suggested I give them a good cleaning there in the office. After using their solution to clean them, I put them back in and haven't had to adjust them once. I forgot what it felt like to be able to see clearly without smudges. Turns out - all I need is a different type of solution. If that isn't an EASY button task, I don't know what is. Thank you Lord for easy answers sometimes.

Good Times with Great Friends

Last weekend we were blessed to be able to spend time with our dear friends Steve and Karyn. They came up this way to head to the Outer Banks with their former small group and we were lucky enough to be home base for them while they were in town. Although the time was short, it was full of quality and we had the best time catching up where we left off and going deeper.

The best part was that we finally got to meet and squeeze their little A.J.(Anna Jane). Erin just adored her and Anna envied her. They all played together and Anna has picked up some new tricks as a result of watching her new buddy. Thanks guys for staying with us and giving us such a great weekend. Can't wait to do it again!!!!

This standing up stuff looks like fun - maybe I'll try it!

He loves me, He loves me not....He loves me!
Cruising on the boardwalk!

So pretty!
