This is another long, full of pictures, post =) I just can't narrow down the pictures!
We headed to Blue Skies (Garet's mom's beach house!) in Morehead City! The drive there was good - uneventful - Addison's first trip! When we got there we didn't waste any time jumping in a canoe!
Colin dug a really big hole that he kept getting in. He also kept putting sand back in it.
There they are out on the water. The tide was out so they had to drag the kayaks out a bit before they could jump in and paddle. But look how far across that is!!
That night Garet and I got to go on a date! ... well we took Addison. She is still not so sure about when she wants to eat, so it's easier to just bring her along. And it seems like we are still on a date because she just chills in her seat =)
Colin had a blast with Grandma Kay and Papa Rod!
We left the next day and had quite the trip home... it is supposed to be 4 hours, it took 5, but it seemed much longer! When we were about 1.5 hours into the trip, we stopped for lunch. I fed Addison, the rest of us ate, then got back on the road. Not long after that, Addison started crying. I jumped in the back seat... between the carseats... yes it was super tight! And I got her calmed down and told Colin we were all taking a "rest time". That lasted about an hour, then it started raining. We had a cloth roof rack. So Garet pulled over, got all our luggage off the top and into the front seat. I fed Addison again. Then we crammed back in. Garet and a FULL seat of luggage in the front. Addison, Colin and me in the back with me covered with stuff (books, food, luggage...) Suzi and more luggage in the very back. We were a full load. Oh and it stopped raining.
Once we were finally home we were tired! But the trip was sooo worth it! We had a blast!
