Years last beach trip and family goings on...

It has been a nice last almost 3 weeks since my last post. We went on our last beach vacation, went to Amy's aunt and uncle's 50th wedding anniversary party and done a few other fun family activities. When we went to the beach, the waves were crazy big there those 2 days. We got to eat at a few of our favorite places, and the kids had a blast on the beach. We met my folks there along with Emily and John. When we got back that Saturday night, we went to the Arboretum in Raleigh for the 50th anniversary party and renewal of vowels. It was great to see so many of the family. Most recently, Steven just tested for another tip towards his black belt in Tae Kwon Do. He did great course and is that much closer now to his black belt. I will post some photos of our recent doings.

Labor day - 2009 - We're still here

It's Labor day, 2009!! A nice day off from work, but the kiddos are off too so we will have a day to hang out together. It will be nice. It has been over a month since my last post and I had hoped to have more to write on but there has not been too much going on other than normal "nearing fall" stuff. I started back to school at Wake Tech and Steven started back to school and now is in 3rd grade. It is really hard to believe. He is getting so big and is so independent allot of the time. He really does well in class though. I think we will be really lucky when it comes to how smart both kiddos are. Also Amy and I just came into the year 2009 and were hearded into joining Facebook. I was thinking that we had done stuff that was photo-worthy, but the only thing I have some pictures of is from Saturday before last when Steven and I had high hopes for the NC State football team and went to meet the pack day at Carter Finley. We did have a great time and got plenty of pictures that I will share some of. This was Steven standing in front of the new wolf statue

Daddy doing the same thing... Steven with the field behind him And this is Steven with one of his happiest moments of recent memory...
It was hard to wipe the smail off his face when we left...
That is all I have for now. Hopefully all is well with everyone. We are going to the beach and an anniversary party next weekend so we should have plenty to report. Take care.
