North Carolina Cousins Visit

We have many awesome NC relatives!  (all on Stephen's side)

I'm backposting from last fall, it's literally been a year since I kept up with the blog. Last year (2016) in July, the younger kids of Joey and Tammy came to spend a week with us.  Stephen had to work, but the rest of us treated it like a vacation!!  They're all awesome, so it was an incredible time!!

We took long walks at the parks, the walking bridge, and downtown several evenings.

Played several games, including PicWits and that weird Jelly Bean game where you eat a certain color and it might be pear or peach, or something yummy.... or it might be dogfood, vomit, or something else equally disgusting :)  I think Dawson and Courtney lasted the longest...??

Stupidly, I decided to hike in the heat with this delightful crew.  They did great, but I did not.  Devin and my mom had to hike me out the last 20 yards or so.  But the water was fun!

Clyde's on Main :D

Indoor Trampoline Park!  This was a huge hit!

Lake Winnepasauka!!

Wish we could have ALL THE MANY North Carolina kin out all at once!!!  But in lieu of that, this was a blast!!!

Anniversary 2016!! Because I'm a Year Behind on My Blog

We always celebrate our anniversary a month early, because July is just easier for my sister to host what everyone calls "Camp Sherry."  This is when Sherry and David keep the kids for 4 nights.

I, as you can see from the title of this blog, am WAAAAY behind on blogging, a year behind.  I thought about giving up, but I'm hoping I'll start feeling more up to doing it.  And hopefully I'm getting more used to my new, and by new I mean 1-year-old, picture software.  (Boo!  I miss Picasa so badly!)

Moving along...

I can't remember what else we did with our time, since it was a year ago... but we ate Hibachi

And then ate at a ramen house downtown!  That was pretty novel and fun!

And so we celebrated 16 years together!  He's been precious, and loves unconditionally!!
