Last weekend was our annual kid-free trip to Bald Head Island with Josh, Anise, Cory, Jennie, Megan, Jason, Megan and Dave. We've been doing this trip for 6 years I think (although we missed one year when Noah was really little). As always, it was so fun!! And a huge thanks to Nana and Grandad for keeping the kids for us! I think everyone had a great time!
We dropped the kids at daycare on Thursday morning, picked up Megan A and took off bright and early. We made it in time for the 11:00 ferry and met Megan and Jason there so the 5 of us were out on the beach by about 2. We spent a few hours out there and the rest of the group trickled in through the night. We ate dinner at the house and just hung out. Press repeat and you pretty much have the rest of the weekend so I'll sum it up quick.... Friday was a huge beach day - we packed lunches and just hung out there all day. Dinner at the house again on Friday night and just more relaxing and fun! Saturday, more of the same except a little less beach time (a little more lazy in the morning) and dinner out at Eb and Flow's that night. We left pretty early on Sunday to get home and see our kiddos. What a great vacation!! Picutres....

Most of us on the beach - loved this moment were we were all just hanging out together and talking
Here I am holding Jennie's baby bump! :-) So cute!!
We can't wait to meet their baby boy in November!

Caught this one of Jason holding Megan's purse - think it's so funny!! :-)
Our whole group at dinner!
When we got home, Kylie was napping and Noah and Grandaddy were at the pool. We unloaded and unpacked and then Nana and I walked down to the pool to get Noah. It was so nice to see him and Kylie when she woke up from nap soon after. They got a great report from Nana and Grandad so we are so glad it went well.
That evening, my neck went out so that was a little miserable. I couldn't hardly move it and ended up taking half a day on Monday to recover. I was mostly better by Tuesday night so that was good that it wasn't long lived.
Thursday night, Grammy came through town and visited. They finally sold my Gramma's house so she and my uncle were going down there Friday to clear it out (which meant out dining room finally got finished!). Waylon went out with some old coworkers and Grammy and I took the kids to the pool for an hour that night.
Friday, Noah insisted on going to school since he had show and share and was so excited to show off his new spy jet that Nana and Grandad got for him. I tried to talk him out of it but he really wanted to go. So I took him to school and Kylie and I went to the mall with Megan and Ryan. It was nice to just have a day with her alone. Maybe we'll have to do that more often on Fridays - trade off special Mommy days with the kids. :-)
The only shot I got at the mall of the two of them. Several people thought they were siblings and one even asked if they were twins!! :-) They do kinda look alike...
Last night, we met up with Janet, Frank, Maddie and Mason for a quick dinner. I think I got a few pictures of them running around after dinner but I didn't get those pictures in on time. I'll get them in the next post! :-) This morning has been a lazy morning which has been really nice - no swim lessons today which is a change! Grammy came back through with our dining room stuff and we got some pictures up on the wall, too which is great!
Hope you all are having a great weekend!
