Happy Birthday Miss Sarah!

It's hard to believe our little girl is three! She is growing up so fast!
For her birthday we celebrated at RuckerJohn's with our neighbors and also had a party at Matt & Naomi's with their family and Ryan, Denise & Hayden. It was a great birthday for our little Miss!

Dawg Days of Summer

It has been hot & humid here in Eastern Carolina and nothing is better on a hot day than a popsicle!


Look who's riding too! He is so proud!

The other day I overheard Moses say, "Come on Silas, be my buddy". And for the most part they really are buddies. They seem to share a special affection for one another. Here they are after doing "guy stuff" with Daddy (washing the motorcycle)! They are having so much fun when Daddy lets them "drive".

Moses Rides Part II

After the monumental removing of the training wheels in the spring they ended up going back on. But after the week of vacation and seeing all his big cousins riding their bikes along with a little encouragement from a neighbor (who promised she would bake him cookies if he could ride without training wheels) he said goodbye to the training wheels and just picked up the bike and started to ride. He is super fast and keeps the neighbors on their toes as he buzzes around the neighborhood. He has even motivated the other four year olds on the block to ride their bikes. One mom told me today that her daughter wants to ride her bike more so she can be as fast as Moses! are a few shots of the day he took off without the training wheels! So proud!

Summer Nights

We love evenings on the beach and since Mark works most evenings we especially cherish the nights when we can stroll the beach, fly a kite or search for shells. And that is just what we did on this evening in June. It is hard to believe it has already been a month since our family vacation and the night these pitctures were taken but life just seems to be in fast forward these days. Anyways...we are hoping to catch up and give you a few peeks into what summer brings us here on the island!
