2011 Week 8

We have had the best weather this week! Combine that with the fact that my parents were still visiting, thus giving us the excuse to play a lot and take a break from most of our usual routine and home improvement projects and that makes for one pretty good week.

Friday Mom and I got in some Girl Time out shopping while Kaitlyn was at school and Tyler got to play with Grandpa. Sam got off work early and took Dad and Ty to the base to show them around a bit and get some lunch. When Kaitlyn got home from school she was excited to have Gma and Gpa watch her at dance class.

Saturday we headed to the beach! Oh it's so much fun to be able to take a day trip out there (took us 2 hours to get to Wrightsville Beach) and the fact that we were sitting on the sand without jackets in February - so nice!

Being outside in the sun is draining. So Sunday we just kind of hung out in the morning, then went to a movie with the kids in the afternoon.

Monday was President's Day. Sam had the day off and Kaitlyn only had half day so we kept her out of school and goofed off in the morning, then went for a hike at Raven Rock State Park. Dad was really interested in the Cape Fear River, so we had wanted to take him to the overlook. It's a great view up there. Will love to go back when the leaves are on the trees and the water is higher and see how much of a difference it makes.There is also a place where you can go down a bunch of steps and be near the river itself. It had all kinds of really cool rocks and trees and things. The kids didn't want to quit exploring.

We got some one on one photos of the kids with their grandparents while we were there.

And Tuesday they flew out. We spent the rest of the week playing catch up on all the stuff we put off during their visit and working back into our normal routine.
