And we're back!

Whew! It has been a busy month! I've gotten way behind and since I know I'll never actually catch up if I try to go in to detail...I'm going to see if I can share some of the highlights (or just cute pictures) from lately. 

Moving Day...Thank goodness we had lots of help. Apparently you can accumulate quite a bit over 10 years and moving 5 people instead of 2.

Everyone worked really hard and although we have a long way to go...we are a functioning household. Maybe I'll share real pictures once there's no boxes in them.

Parker and Tinley went on vacation with Ganny and Grandaddy and had a great time.

Meanwhile we stayed at home to celebrate 6 months with our little man.

Since he is half a year old, he enjoyed some yummy carrots for his half birthday.

We made our way out to the Fan Fest for Carolina Panthers...and although our experience kind of failed, we're still fans and some of us looked year we'll know what we're getting into.

Shared a special birthday with a special friend getting her first American Girl doll and Isabelle got a new do.

Another birthday party for our friend Lilly at Claire's.

Most exciting news... we got a new niece (and cousin). Matthew and Meagan welcomed Avery Blair and she is just perfect.

Just love this picture...and also it makes me feel old;)

Got to get in some visits with friends before the summer ended!

Parker's birthday party celebration! 9 years old!

Lake Lure and fun girl time!

 We carried watermelons!

Cousins are definitely your first best friends...we love all of ours!

Beach...Carolina Style

We always enjoy all our favorites at Carolina Beach...some things never get old.

Like the beach...

And Britts donuts...yum!

Puzzles with Booya (well not my favorite...but some people like it)

Party Boat- first time for the kids

 The aquarium

Seeing some of our favorite nearby locals

Who needs the aquarium  when you find a jellyfish for examining?

Sporting their new bands..

 Boardwalk fun!

Be back soon Carolina Beach!

No summer is complete without at least one trip to Carowinds...(aka- the hottest place on Earth)

Love the NC/SC line- and yes I made everyone pose.

Since it is soooo hot, we opted for water first...

All the water was really fabulous until we had a near storm scare- but after the scary black cloud (per Parker) passed by...we managed to find dry (and cooler) land.

Exciting times as Tinley ventured onto her first roller coaster.

And survived!

Another day of water adventures and a random groupon.

 A free slurpy at 7 eleven on 7-11

We've been enjoying VBA...with a colder theme like Everest, we've had to really use our imagination and dig out some winterish wear.

Camden came along for some fun too!

And of course, we celebrated Cow Appreciation at chick fil a...I know our little chicken mini is excited we didn't leave him out.

And in other news... we're moving (or in light of this picture, I should say mooooooving)...A busy exciting time for us as we move beyond this house of many memories and into a new place where Camden can have a room with a door!
