Carolina Beach & Fort Fisher Aquarium

Hello everyone! Well, I warned you I'd be out more than in this summer. Man, these guys can keep a mom running!!! We just got back from several days at the beach and I thought I'd share a few pics.
We visited the aquarium while at Fort Fisher and it was such a fun trip!! Baby really was excited. He squealed and pointed and told everyone he saw, "LOOK!" Nick and Noah loved the kids tank where they could touch star fish, horseshoe crabs, and more.
This was outside the aquarium. The boys were very pleased to have something to climb on!!
After the aquarium, we spent the rest of the day at Carolina Beach. By far my favorite beach. There are very few people on this beach and since we went on a weekday, it was almost completely private.
Baby was not as enthused about the ocean water as the rest of us, so he found a BIG hole someone had dug and filled with water and that is where he stayed.
It was a wonderful trip, however, I came back even more tired than when we left. Our last day there we spent on the boat fishing and Nick caught 4 or 5 fish!! Noah never even touched a pole! Twins are sooooo different!! Have a great day. I must get ready for church.

Takin' A Break

We have been sequestered in the house because of a wildfire on the coast! The smoke is blowing inland this far and poor Noah is coughing his poor head off so we are housebound until it goes away. Since I had a minute I thought I'd share a few cards I've done (don't have time for pages right now). This one I made for the twins teachers. I love it when I get the chance to do girly things!! The boys wrote their 'thank-you's' inside.
And this one is the Father's Day card for this year.
Hope everyone is having a blast so far this summer! We are!! We'll be leaving for our vacation in one more week. Last year we hit all the lighthouses on the coast. This year we will have Baby and gas has gone up so much that we won't be doing as much driving. We're planning a deep sea fishing trip and to see the Battleship and that will probably be it. We'll spend most of our time in the ocean and the playground. Have a great day!!

MIA for a while

Summer is here in all it's splendor! I absolutely love this time of year. The heat doesn't bother me (so long as there is a pool), and the work helps me shed a few unwanted pounds. However, between all the boys being home, the garden to tend to, vacations, and company, there is little time to blog or scrapbook. So I will be gone most of the time. I do hope to do a little scraping and I will be sure to share any LO's I may get done, but for the most part, I will be MIA until the end of August.

I did want to leave you with a LO I did last week. I am so blessed with family that love the Lord and love me. This is my wonderful Mom and Dad. I've heard people say they have the best Mom and Dad, but I think mine are the best!!
Don't forget me while I'm gone!! I'll post again as soon as I have time. Now I'm off to enjoy this wonderful family God has blessed me with!!!!!!!
