Mini Vacations

Well we have been busy over the past couple weeks!  We are trying to make the most of time being unemployed and still looking for a job in Charlotte and Ryan waiting to get his license so he can start working:)  We started these mini vacations off with separate trips to the beach with our friends.  Ryan went with his dental school friends....and leave it up to a group of guys to not take any pictures!  I however went with some of my girl friends and their sweet little ones and I could not resist taking pictures!  This picture sums up our glasses and sippy cups...
We had so much fun going on long walks, cooking, playing with the kiddos, talking on the screened in porch at night with a glass of wine and just catching up with each other!

Although we are spread out all over the state and in different stages of life, I love the fact that we all make the effort to spend time together:)
Thanks Jennifer for a great week!  Can't wait to see yall again!
We also got away with the "soon to be" Cockerhams at the lake! Tripp and Traci extremely fun to be around and always have something fun up their sleeves!
Lots of dogs swiming, boat riding, strawberry shortcake and bbq eating, laughs and fun in the water.
I also road a jet ski for the first time!!

The dogs may have had more fun.....

Thanks to Tripp's grandparents we had a very relaxing and fun day at the Lake!!!

And finally our trip to Greenville to visit the living so close to yall and we are getting spoiled seeing yall so often!  The guys played golf while we shopped and planned for this little guys 1st b-day next weekend!
We made lots of yummy meals, Rachel made the best ice cream sandwiches(which we tried to get baby Ryan to eat), practiced climbing the stairs and lunch at Pomegranate and Blueberry Frog for frozen yogurt.

I will be sad when we have to go back to the real world and work during the week:(


  1. I am laughing so hard at your post capturing our beach week - you summed it up perfectly!!!

  2. Do you have cherries this year? I live in Raleigh and would love to have some, if possible!

  3. We moved to Charlotte! I saw cherries at Harris Teeter yesterday and I am so sad that we have to pay for them this year! Sorry:(
