Be Young, Be Foolish, Be Happy!

We are finally back from Florida! It's was one long trip and made us miss North Carolina since it's so much closer to the beach. Carl has driven 1900 miles in the last 9 days. Crazy! Evie did much better coming back. Maybe she is used to being forward now and all of her teeth came in so she probably felt a lot better. She slept some, played with her dolls and snacked while pointing out every ball between Ormond Beach and Nashville.

  We drove to Atlanta yesterday and spent the night with our neighbors from Charlotte, the Haber's. It was so much fun to see them and their beautiful baby boy in their gorgeous new home. We had a fabulous time and felt like no time had passed since our last visit. The kids went right to sleep and we enjoyed a  fantastic dinner prepared by Alicia and Mike and stayed up late catching up on the last nine months. Carl and I slept so well. It felt so good to be in a comfortable bed after being on an older mattress for the past few nights.Mike picked up some bagels for breakfast. Evie and Liam were so adorable together. They kept kissing and patting each other. Liam thought Evie was pretty interesting. He watched her really carefully as she flung food from one end of their kitchen to the other. We are already planning our next visit!

   We got home around 12:30 and I took my items to consign. It was a madhouse but luckily my drop-off went very smoothly. Some people seemed to be consigning their entire house by the looks of their piles. I made a quick trip to the grocery store and Carl hung out with Evie. He said she was having so much fun playing with her toys and seemed to be taking inventory after her absence last week. Hope they are all still here. Carl mowed our jungle yard. It must have rained a lot while we were gone because our grass was so high.Our neighbors put their house up for sale while we were gone. Their son just moved to Hickory and they have decided to join his family there. We can understand that. It's hard being far from your family in so many ways.

    Evie is on Eastern time so she went to bed super early and we had a babysitter come so we could go to Crockett Park to see The Tams. Carl and I had so much fun! It was a perfect night for an outdoor concert and  we both love Carolina beach music. Tennessee has a different idea of beach music and we noticed that they did not play Carolina Girls. We danced a few songs, ate a picnic and enjoyed spending some time with each other.

    Hope you had a great weekend!
