Our Vacation

We are now back in Florida after spending a wonderful week back on the OBX. While we were there we got to spend lots of time with my parents, Nathan, Tricia, and Gwyneth, and Rachel and Ramon. We hung out at my parents house a lot just relaxing and enjoying their company. We got to see a lot of Tricia and Gwyneth, which was really nice considering what all they have been through this year and what we have missed. She is a beautiful baby and has those beautiful Lawrenson blue eyes. It was a great week catching up with the family.

We were also able to spend some time with friends. I was able to see several at Gwyneth's baby shower, and we saw several at Nags Head Church on Sunday morning. It was great to be able to go to church there! I miss it! I was able to swing by Kitty Hawk Kites and The Culinary Duck to say hi to some old co-workers (sorry I missed you Heather!), and that was nice.

We never made it to the beach, sad, but we did make it to La Fogata twice! I really miss some good Mexican food here. The local chain just doesn't cut it. On Saturday we went with some friends to see Batman, which rocked! Sunday I planned a girls night out. We went to Barefoot Burnies for some good food, then we went to see Momma Mia!, and that was awesome, even better than Batman!

The only bad part of the trip was our flights back. We were delayed a few hours in Norfolk, but luckily our flight out of Charlotte was delayed too, so we made that. We finally got home at 4am, so I slept until 12:10 today.

Monday was our anniversary. We ate our cake topper, which wasn't half bad for being in the freezer for a whole year. We decided not to do anything special by ourselves and took the chance to spend more time with our family. It was a good day thinking back of our first year as one.

And thanks to Karie and Paul & Diane for keeping and taking care of Lilly for us.

Friday night the family went to the beach for some family portraits. Nathan took all of them, and he did a great job! All of these pics are courtesy of Nathan. Thanks Nate!

Frodo flew like a pro; he did great both times. He got to hang with Nate's dog Meka all week. Frodo liked Meka a bit too much, if you take my meaning.

We had a great time on our vacation, and can't wait for you all to come and vacation with us!
