Kai comes home from Journey Camp

This makes me smile and cry at the same time. Kai had an amazing time this week at camp. He had his heart broken for those less fortunate and was simultaneously filled up with inspiring and life giving messages from some absolutely amazing youth leaders...I am so grateful that he was able to go and I'm also a little bit jealous, because it seems that he had such an amazing time... But, really the brother reunion was pretty special...These pictures absolutely melt my heart.

Fourth of July week

Ok- last week Craig had a birthday, he and I went surfing for the first time (and second, and third) and we got to enjoy fireworks on the beach. Not a terrible week.

Downtown Wilmington

Just some pics of the boys hanging out downtown after a recent museum trip.

Carolina beach state park

We live less than a mile from a beautiful state park with amazing hiking trails and beaches. We took a family hike recently, and almost made it home without anyone complaining about how hot it was...

Myrtle Beach trip

We got to tag along with Craig, who had mandatory training in Myrtle Beach a few weeks was a week of sunshine and fun, and such an unexpected blessing to have a "free" vacation. Here's some pics from our trip.

Probably my favorite moment of the trip...
Lego World at Broadway by the Beach= boy heaven. 
14th story oceanfront? Sure!!
Free admission to Wild Waves & Wheels? Why not? 

Morning quiet time. 
Organized pool activities daily...
Some necessary chill time. 

Snacks and lazy rivers. 
Tie-dye shirts...
Jak went for a 2.1 mile run with me on the beach. Tough guy...

You HAVE to go to Planet Hollywood when you go to Myrtle Beach... :)

Jak jak

Just an quick update on jak- He is a fan of playing music... and he likes to play dress up at the museum...and he was baptized recently...So, yup, he is pretty much awesome.
