When we got home from Tennessee, Todd's family from Florida and Connecticut were at our house for a beach vacation! We had a great time and enjoyed their company for 2 weeks!

On the Nolichucky River

A few weeks ago, we loaded up and drove to Erwin, TN, with 23 youth group kids, 7 adults, and 4 other young kiddos for a fun time on the river and an awesome time with the Lord! We all stayed in the same cabin right on the Nolichucky, and Uriah did very well staying in the same room with 2 other toddlers. It was interesting; I wasn't too sure what I had gotten myself into when we first got there, but after one night around the campfire with the kids, I was super excited to be there, and I am so glad we went! We cooked all our food over the fire, no frig, no microwave, no stove. We did have toilets and showers (with hot water) though, thankfully! We had 3 days of white water rafting, and Todd stayed back with Uriah on the second day so I could go. It was so much fun! And I went caveing too, all I have to say about that is...extreme and FUN!

summer visitors

Summertime brings lots of visitors our way to the beach! So far this summer we have enjoyed the company of Lance and Todd's parents and uncle. We are looking forward to more visitors soon!

Uncle Lance flew up and stayed with us for 2 weeks! We all had such a great time!! The time just went by way too fast!!

We went surfing together! He got the hang of it really quickly and caught a lot of waves :)

Uriah will be walking soon!

Todd's Uncle Chuck, mom and dad, and Breezy (the white fluff at the bottom of the pic) stopped by for a few days to say hi and see how big Uriah is getting. We were so happy to see them!
p.s. The invite is open...we are so blessed to live where we are and we want to share it with others. If you are ever near the area, or want to see the beautiful outer banks of NC, you are welcome to come stay with us. We have plenty of beds and fun!!
