Well as you have probably noticed, we have been MIA for the past several weeks. We have been on the go, but are finally back home. Ahh, Home Sweet Home! Every year we head to Holden Beach with my family. We always have a fabulous time laying on the beach, cooking dinners together and playing cards or Lord of Catan at night. This year Bryan and I were either on the beach or playing with the kiddos on this trip, while the other adults golfed or did homework(Bertha & Mom).
Trip Memories 2010:
* Playing cards with the family
* Soaking up the sun on the beach
* Toy Story 3 w/ the kiddos
* Shrimp Burger from Provision Company!
* Reading for pleasure (Same Kind of Different as Me - a MUST read)
* Bocce ball
* Reserving the house for 2011 - YAY!

Wish you were here..
After 7 days at the beach we headed back to our old college town to visit with family and friends for a few days. We had a good time catching up with everyone. We stayed with Bryan's brother and sister-in-law, and they are always the best hostess and awesome at letting us have tons of people over :) Saturday when we got back from the beach we had a get together with several of our closest friends - grilling out and playing yard games. Fun was had by all.
Sunday for the fourth we spent the day with family. It was really great weather in NC. It was nice to be able to hangout and enjoy each other.

Monday we had an AWESOME day with Lee, Kasey and Bethany. Lee & Kasey took us all to Morehead City to the beach. We went out on their boat and headed out to Cape Lookout. I could not believe the water - I felt like we were in the Bahamas. It was so clear and gorgeous. I had no idea we were going to an island with a lighthouse. It was so fun. It was a great day, followed by a great seafood dinner! We had a great time and can't wait to go back!
Fun things from the day:
* We saw 4 foot long sharks!
* Ventured to the lighthouse and learned about the lighthouse keepers
* Enjoyed the clear, clear water
* Stuffed ourselves on yummy shrimp
* Loved the boat ride - B didn't get sick! yay!
* Being w/ the siblings :)
* Catching some rays & swimming in the ocean
