Yesterday my baby turned 9....his last year to be a single digit.....next year he says he will be a "tenager"....haha! Seems like my younger ones are growing so much faster than my older ones did.....maybe they really do since they are always listening and trying to follow in the footsteps of someone older. At any rate it just seems too fast!!! We had a great day.....cut our school day a little short and spent some quality time together.....time playing and of course baking a birthday cake.....went out to eat for lunch and and then on to Bass Pro Shop. We ended the day with Papaw, Nana and Ivan over here for supper......and a big "Thank You" to Nana for a delicious chocolate eclair!!! Happy 9th Birthday , Jacob!!! Hope this year is everything you want it to be :) Love you!!!
Happy weekending!!! Hope you all enjoy your time with family and friends this weekend....maybe you will be able to step away from the hustle and bustle that the week days so often bring and enjoy a little down time :)
Oak Island, NC.....Have you ever been there? It was a first for me and I am totally in love!!! I love the feeling of freedom I get from being on the beach anyway, just having my toes in the sand, and the breeze...Ahhhh!!! It had been 5 years since we had been to the beach and we thoroughly enjoyed every minute! We cooked very little, walked the beach a lot , found lots of seashells, enjoyed watching the fishing boats , fished a little ourselves and most of the time we didn't really do anything :) The down time was much needed and you cant beat relaxation in the sand and sun!!!
We celebrated Kimberly's 17th birthday while we were there and took a little ride to Wilmington to see the USS North Carolina. I had been there as a child and wanted our children to see it. I will leave you with a few pics :) Hope you enjoy!
Thank you for visiting out little space here on the web :) Have a great week!
Happy Birthday, girl!!! Don't know where the time has gone....just 17 years ago we were eagerly awaiting your arrival..... You decided to keep us waiting 20 extra days....haha.....but you haven't stopped since!!! You are forever playing music, crafting, drawing, painting....doing something productive! You're quite an inspiration to me :) You always make time to include a sibling in your frequent trips to the candy store or to town and they love you for it!!! Hope 17 is everything you want it to be and more :) Love you!!!
Thank you for stopping by to see what we're up to :)
