I can’t believe our week at the beach is almost over. Boo. It’s always so hard to leave. I’m just getting warmed up!
Blake, Cole, Eva, and I took off Friday morning and headed down to the farm.
Must be nice to tune it all out….
Farm means horses
The girlie found an old bridle
This was the first long car ride that she was good. What a relief that was….hoping the trip back goes just as well.
We stopped in Birmingham for the night. And the kids hit the pool.
The next morning we hit the road again.
And later after we arrived in Watersound, we hit the pool again
I have never seen the water so rough here. It only lasted a couple of days
It snowed at the farm- Barley sent me a selfie
I felt a little bad we were enjoying the sun…
Eva loved this dead cockroach. She said it was her friend and the best pet ever. She accidentally broke off a couple of its legs.
We have spent a lot of time on the back screened porch. This house has so many porches.
We take a lot of night trips around the neighborhood.
Tiffany and her family came to visit. The girlies were so funny together.
June left her pink princess sunglasses and someone borrowed them
The week started winding down and we started to get a little sad about leaving.
This little dude is my biggest fan (although Andy says HE is)
Off to enjoy our last day at the beach- tomorrow we start heading back.
I wish that it was warmer but it sure beats snow.
By lunch time it warms up and we head out.
I’m not ready to go back north.
Our house has a pink golf cart. Eva loves it.
Meeting up with some friends today- can’t wait!
It’s so stinking cold. I don’t like it. Our house is cold. I don’t like that either. The boys don’t like playing lax in the cold- it requires many layers
We are about to head south, for which I am very very grateful- although it is cold down there too.
So let’s change the subject. Yesterday I photographed my friends house as she is about to put it on the market and start another big project like me. I thought I would share. Her house is gorg!
These stairs lead to a fun little bedroom tucked up in the eaves. It is so stinkin cute.
The living room.
It has the best kitchen
The family room
Ok I could post a ton more but the kids are hungry and fighting. If you want to see more go here.
Happy Spring Break!!!!!!
It has been a crazy week. Our Chapel Hill house went on the market. A somewhat sad day for me but also happy in that I always like to move forward.
A few days later we had two offers on it, with a third that was backup. Which was also a bittersweet day. Believe me I want to sell that house, and get started on this one here in Ohio. But it’s never easy to close a door.
Now that we are not in North Carolina the pressure to do NC beaches is off and we can go back to our fave beach. And I can’t wait. It’s been two years since we went there.
We are hoping a lot gets knocked out on our basement while we are gone. It’s framed and ready for walls. Bathroom is plumbed, our boiler system has been ripped out. Which means that only two living spaces have heat. We have been using space heaters to stay warm.
It has been so cold. Poor Blake was wet and miserable when he got home at 8pm last night from lacrosse. And covered with mud. And then Eva couldn’t get her jeans off in time and peed on the bathroom floor. And then when I was reading her books for bed a neighbor stopped by to drop off yummy treats and Blake sat right by the door and didn’t answer it. Finally Austin went to answer it with Cole dancing around in his undies. It was the same neighbor that helped Blake and Eva at the park the other day when she ran into a fence and busted her head and was bleeding everywhere (I was at the store). I have not met her yet. She must think my children have no parents. Andy is in NYC.
We are ready for a break! And some warm sunny skies.
This is what my baby looked like the first time we went to Watersound. Time flies
