Catching up.........

I finally have a chance to sit down and write a little post for you all.
It's been two week since we have returned from vacation, and we've been busy catching up.  The garden and berries are producing like crazy, so I have been busy processing squash, beans, cukes and making batches of jam.  It's always satisfying to put up your own foods, but I am so tired from standing in the kitchen all day.

I dream of the beach, and how simple things were when we were on vacation, but it is good to be back home, even if it is a ton of work!

Here's a few highlights from our vacation pictures.
Petersburg Battlefield

Storm to the north the first night at our house on the OBX

Avon Pier - always beautiful

Entrance to the beach we took each day.  We were only 4 houses away, then up and over the dune to the beach.

Scott, Steph & Allie

Our little princess

Grandpa and Allie

Sunsets on the OBX

Chris & Scott on the Ferry to Okracoke Island

A beach fire  at night...how utterly relaxing.....

Little Elena was as good as gold

Allie in her 'pool' on the beach.  She LOVED it.

We always enjoyed watching all the crabs that came out at night.

A visit to Kitty Hawk

To say it was hot and humid was an understatement!
Bodie Island lighthouse.

Allie hamming it up for the camera.

Sadly, the last sunset at our place before heading home.

A storm as we approached Fredericksburg, VA.  We stayed nearby and visited the battlefield too.

Our lunch stop before the final push home.
I hope you have a wonderful week everyone!
