Back from the Beach...

Okay, so it's been a month since I blogged (before yesterday) and I'm sorry for keeping you in waiting... life took over, and the internet and computer went to the back burner. I know you're just itchin' to find out what I've been up to, so here goes... Last month, my nephew, Noah, came to visit for the month and we were busy doing things to keep my 3 kids plus Noah occupied. We went to the pool, the park, the library, shopping, boating, dirt-bike & 4-wheeler riding, dune-buggying, bike riding and who knows what else... and they STILL had energy... I don't know where they get it, but a map to find the source would be nice. :) Here's a picture of the four on one of the days we went to the park. (If you click on the pictures, you can see them bigger)




Following Noah's visit at our house, we went for a weeks vacation in the Outer Banks of NC. Yes, I live in NC, but we had to travel 4.5 hours to get to the Outer Banks. I live in the South Outer Banks... much less touristy, if you know what I mean. Anyway, we spent the last week of June with my extended family... some from Georgia, Pennsylvania, and even New York. I wish I could've seen more of my family, but they couldn't make it. We had a great time seeing the ones who were there... we had a housefull... 22 people total.





I miss them all already and can't wait for next year. I have already started scrapping the pictures from the beach. Check out what I've done!





So... what do you think? I'm pleased with what I've done so far. I think I'm going to redo the Ahoy Matey page and spread it into a 2-page spread... so I can add a few more pics & make it bigger. :) I've also been making cards like crazy, but I can't share them until the recipients get them. As many of them read my blog. Sorry. :) I'll be sure to post them soon, though. Leave me a comment... I'll be back soon! Have a great day!
