Time Flies

Wow I guess it has been awhile since I got a chance to blog.

It feels like only yesterday I was writing the last one.

Where is this summer going????

We have been doing well! For our big vacation get away we went to Topsail, NC with friends of ours and had a blast. There kids and Tyler are around the same age and get along well so we like to take trip together when we can.

We stayed at a condo that had an outdoor and indoor pool and it was steps away from the surf and sand. We walked on the beach just about every night and swam in the pool everyday. Ty LOVED having the pool steps away for us. He LOVES going to the pool and swimming. We took a day to explore Wilmington, NC. We went to the Battleship NC, we found a train museum for Matt to see and then we spent sometime at the Children's museum of Wilmington. The kids had loved all 3 places and were well behaved!

We also decided that the couples will get a date night each! Matt and I went to this Mexican restaurant I discovered the day Kate and I went to the Day Spa for massages. Yes we also had a girls day at the spa and then the boys had a day to go golfing. It was nice to have time with friends and couple time. When we travel alone we never get that. We are looking forward to going back another year!
We have also been spending lots of time at the pool! It has been so hot here that it is the only place to get some relief for a few hours plus Ty gets to play with his friends without playing out in the heat.
I have also been busy scrapping away! It feels good to get some mojo back!
Dad is doing well in Ireland! I don't think he wants to come home. But all good things come to an end. I am currently looking to book him a flight home the last week of August. The same week the little man starts Kindergarten.......

Thanks for reading!
