Happy 4th of July

We just hung out at home this year. The kids and I went swimming and shortly after we got there the sky turned dark and it got super windy. Everyone cleared out but I told them we would stay as long as it wasn't thundering and lightening. They had a blast!! As the weather was this summer, we swam a lot in the rain!

 Around firework time, we decided to head over to mom and dad's for fireworks. Before we knew it Leslie and her family were headed up to watch as well! I love spur of the moment family time!

Adeline turns 4

Right when we got back from vacation it was time for Miss Adeline to have her birthday. So, I got her decorations together for her Peppa Pig party and it was a hit! I absolutely love decorating for parties. So much fun!

Day 4 and 5 of vacation

After a great day for Olivia with everything done for her, we woke up to mom being sick. Remind you Easton has now been throwing up the last 3 nights. We turned over our puke bucket to mom because she apparently had a terrible case of food poisoning! She made the best of it on day 3 but was down for the count the rest of the trip. We pretty much stayed low key the remaining days.

While at the beach this year, Olivia discovered the boogie board, or as she called it, the booger board. She loved it and could not get enough! I love her adventurous spirit! 

Our sweet friends, Ashley and Ryan moved to North Carolina, so instead of heading straight home, we went to their place to spend the night. It was so good to see them and we can't wait to go back! They sure do love our kids! Olivia and Easton love them too!

Happy birthday Olivia!

Basically day 3 of vacation was for Olivia! Anything she wanted to do is what we did and the day was really fun! Easton was feeling better and mom wasn't fully sick yet but didn't eat a bite because she knew her stomach wasn't right...member food poisoning full blown by tomorrow for her. We got up and went to a local donut shop. Then it was present time! I love to watch her open presents these days! Use to she was too shy to open them, but she isn't anymore! We let her open her presents from us and had her wait to open from mom and dad later in the day to make it last longer for her.

We all got ready and headed to the beach! 

When it's your birthday you get to walk to the pier with your daddy and get an icee! 

After a day at the beach, we headed back to the house and took showers and Olivia opened the rest of her presents.

We had dinner and then she wanted to go play putt putt. 

We ended our day with a local ice cream spot. It was delicious! Happy birthday sweet Olivia! I cannot believe you are 7! Mommy and Daddy love you so, so, so much!

Vacation Day 2

We had a rough night with Easton. I could tell he had fever and just didn't feel well. So, we sent everyone off to the beach and I went with him to a minute clinic.

Bless his heart, he felt terrible. His temp was 103 and he was just miserable. After seeing the doctor we left with amoxacillan for his ears. Yep, his ears....again. I decided since he seemed so pitiful to just hang in for the day with him. He slept off and on all day.

After getting some tylenol and a dose of medicine in him as well as a restful day, I decided he could handle going out to dinner. By looking at the picture below, you can't tell he even fells bad or had had such a rough day! Dinner was excellent!   We walked around for a bit trying to find exatly what we wanted to eat without a 2 hour wait. Plus, mom wanted fresh red snapper. I didnt care where we ate as long as there was food other than fish on the menu my group would be fine! We decided on a restaurant and it was very nice. They had homemade hush puppies with a raspberry butter and I had a salad with a watermelon vinagerette! Delicious!!!

(Nope, didn't eat here, but they played on their sign!)
