Two Hotels and One Beach House Later!

After the last Pop-Up camper trip we headed to NC where we spent our first night in a hotel before the beach house and then we ended the beach trip with a wedding in VA. My Brother-in-Law married a gem and we are so happy to have her in our family. She's a second grade teacher and the Boy thinks she is too cool and Bella will always remember her as a princess in a long white dress. We were so worried that the kids would do something awful like not walk down the aisle, but they did great. Here are some pics from the rehearsal and wedding. We were really scared about the rehearsal because we drove from NC to the hotel and headed right to the rehearsal. Now that was one scary thought all week, but it worked out. Cheers to many many years of happiness!

Last Pop-up Trip!

We took our last trip in our Pop-up to Dutch Wonderland which ironically was our first trip in our Pop-up when we bought it. We went to the Park for 2 days and then we took the kids roller skating which seemed like a cool thing to do in my head. Well, it was like trying to teach someone to walk for the first time on ice! The kids were not happy (at all) when they started, but then they began to gain confidence. We will have to take them again so they can practice now that our backs have healed from all the leaning over and picking up. On the last day the latch broke on the trailer door and luckily hubby has an endless supply of straps in his truck so he tied it up like a present with a bow and home we went. Now, posts of the new RV trips to follow!

Emerald Isle, NC 2010

Gosh, a month of weekends traveling coupled with 4 days of house guests and the start of school leaves little time for blogging. We are truly lucky that we have clean socks at this point and we remembered to bring all members of the family home.

Our adventures started with a trip to Emerald Isle, N.C. The kids had a big first - Jet Skiing. The Boy was cautiously excited and the Girl was ready to rock and roll from the mention of the word. Needless to say they had a blast and now a jet ski is on the X-Mas list..... got that one Santa, better get those elves working! We had a house with a pool across from the ocean and the Boy learned how to do flips into the pool which was a bit of a nail biter for Mommy. We also did go carts, arcades, tasty treats, a boat trip to an island and lots of other fun stuff. The Boy loved learning how to body surf and Bella collected lots of shells and did her share of boogy boarding. It was a great trip! Next, camping with our new RV and the wedding!
