Ocean Isle

My family had the amazing opportunity this June to meet up with my brother's family and my sister's family in a beach house for a week in Ocean Isle, NC. It was SO MUCH FUN! We got to beach bum it most days, go to fun aquariums, laugh at each other's sunburns, and stay up late playing games. We even got to weather out a hurricane warning (not so much fun!). I'm not sure who enjoyed it more, the kids or us. 

Somehow I uploaded not the best pics, but since my computer is as slow as a snail, I am just going to deal with it. 

Auntie Lisa and Uncle Dustin were always the most fun!

And they also shared their snacks with the babies. Needless to say they may be the favorites. 

Yes, we made the kids get together for group shots on every occasion possible. They hated it. 

Charlotte loved Taylor so much and stayed by her as much as possible.

And Chase played back-seat driver to Clara.

Everyday Dustin would dig us an enormous baby pool in the sand. 

I miss everyone so much!
On the way back we got to stop by and see my grandpa for a couple of hours before the 12 hr drive back :/. We did get to drive by the town we lived when we were first married; Fairfax, VA. Crazy to think where 6 yrs have taken us!

Yes, it's been a while.

In between the holidays, going out of town, and working on the house I kind of forgot about this blog. So here is what has been going on with us:
Clara can't quite crawl yet but she really likes going around in circles and backwards. She also has 4 teeth and has this great jack o lantern thing going on.
Charlotte is a chatterbox and still loves her sister. Her daddy taught her to use potty words so anytime we call him on the phone she says "Poopy stinky Mater(from cars) bottom daddy stinky poop monkey joes." It's pretty entertaining. 
And here is the proof that they are still alive and well:

Charlotte loving her new dress.

Pumpking carving!

Squishy pumpkin.

Charlotte's favorite face to make when the camera is out.

Pretty much the most content baby ever. 

Unless we go see Santa.

Fun Christmas tent!

Sadly, I don't have a good pic of the full on costume, but this is the gist of it.
