Beach Trip

We were lucky enough to join our friends the Dickey's for a week long vacation in the OBX last week.  It was great to get away and relax.  We have a 2 and 3 year old and 4 teenagers running around so it wasn't quiet, but super fun!

The house was right on the beach and had great views and a big pool!  The girls loved the pool!  I think they got in it everyday.

Cali tried out some arm floaties!


Sand is so much fun!

We spent most of our time at the house enjoying the sand, the pool and hanging out.  The girls got along pretty well and we only had a few meltdowns - we all know how hard it is to share!

Got to love the beach with good friends!

Strawberries and a Wedding

We had another fun filled weekend!  Saturday I had a Gluten Free expo in the morning - super fun!
Saturday afternoon Nick and I went to a wedding for one of the couples from our small group.   It was a beautiful wedding and everyone seemed to have a great time!  We were able to enjoy some kid-free time with our small group.

Sunday after church Cali and I went to my mom's house, Nana's, to play.  After lunch and a nap we headed off to a strawberry patch.  This was Cali's first time picking strawberries and she LOVED it!  Nana showed her how to find the good red ones and how to pull them off.  She did a great job carrying the bucket until it got too heavy.
Ready to fill her bucket

Found One!


Ice Cream!

We finished our adventure off with some homemade strawberry ice cream.  Cali wanted to "do it" so a lot of ice cream ended up on the ground.   Strawberry picking is such a fun spring adventure!  Now off to wash strawberries.
