Summer of Lazy Beach Days

This summer being our first living at the beach we took advantage and spent a lot of time there. I have gotten very comfortable taking the kids to the beach while daddy works. We enjoyed many trips with daddy as well. The kids love to fly kites there and build sand castles. Kenny's favorite thing is to drive cars in the sand. Daniel and Sydney love to catch the waves and ride them in.

Let's Go Fly a Kite.....

We went down to the pier in our neighborhood and used the high wind there to fly ours kites. It wasn't as good as we thought it would be. Next trip will be to the beach.

Memorial Day 2013

Well we kicked off the Weekend with a trip to Maw maw and Paw paw's House in Loris, SC. PaPa Peter came along too. We had a wonderful barbeque and sat and watched the kids play. Mom and dad got the ok from the State to move into the house that they have been building for 3 1/2 years. It looks so great. I think they will officially be living and sleeping in the house in about 2 weeks. I am so happy for them and excited to share in the many celebrations there.

Mother's Day 2013

This year my mom and I drove to NC to spend time with Grandma for Mother's day. It was a great trip.I was so thankful to see her looking so good.

I spent most of the time there like this.. in her arms. I felt like I was 8 yrs old again, as she rubbed my head. It was hard not to think that this might be the last time I see her alive on this earth. She has been such a great grandma and mentor to me. She is so smart. She is the best cook. As far as I know I am the only one who can reproduce her famous pound cake. It was one of the hardest parts about moving to SC..leaving her. I was the only one close to her for over 12 years. So many hospital stays with her and grandpa and help caring for them and running errands. Its ironic, because now I wish I had spent more time with her and grandpa. I wish I hadn't let the busy schedule with the kids enjoying them more as an adult. I love her more than words can express.

Then I woke up Mother's Day morning to three of the sweetest hand made cards from my kiddos and an awesome one from Stefan, along with breakfast in bed. We then packed up and went to Folly Beach for a day in the sun. It was a blast and perfect way to celebrate.
