Ahhh Summer Vacation

Hi everyone! I've been feeling guilty for not updating our blog very regularly. Since we're on vacation I have a few minutes to spend on the computer....just a few though because I would honestly rather be out at the beach than in here on the computer - n0 offense. :)


We're in Avon, North Carolina at the Outer Banks. We're here with my mom, stepdad and brother. My mom's friends let us use their house for the week and it's been really nice. Shan hasn't had much surf time but it's been nice having him all to ourselves without the distraction of those darn waves. Our days have mostly been spent at the beach - my brown leathery skin is proof of it. Noah got his first boogie board (I've heard it's a "boogie" board until he's older when we'll have to rename it "body" board), Shan tried teaching my uncoordinated self to surf (didn't work out so well - I flopped around out there and couldn't even sit well on that thing), Jordan has been playing in the pool and at the beach, we played mini golf (Noah now calls himself Tiger Woods), ate ice cream, ate fresh fish Dennis caught and even spent some time with the Veales who happened to have a house a few doors down (our friends from church). It's been a wonderful break from the busyness of our lives. We will spend a couple days in DC at my mom's then head back home to start fall 07 and get ready for Jordan's next surgery. I'll send updates on that once we get back and things start happening. We have many, many appointments in September and the beginning of October before we hibernate leading up to the surgery. We will be praying she doesn't get sick causing them to postpone the surgery.


I'm going to post some pictures from our trip on our slide show here for you to see.


Thanks for checking back!

Thank you for sharing, Jen! It looks like an absolutely amazing place . . . I've only been to NC once, and didn't make it to the coast. What precious family time!
