Wedding Fun

Our friends Joe and Jean got married a few weekends ago.  They had a beautiful wedding reception during the morning in Spartanburg and a super fun party at night at Greenbrier Farms.  The kids had a blast and so did Michael and I!  Surae danced during almost the whole wedding reception with her buddy West to a fantastic bluegrass band.  We even decked her out in one of her beautiful Chinese dresses that we brought back.  It was a fabulous day!

Goodbye Summer 2010

Well, summer has almost flown by.  Our smaller, more portable camera broke a few months back, so we’ve been relatively pictureless, but we have managed to take a few, some with just my cell phone.  We’ve all had a busy, but fantastic summer!  Graham is now back in school and just started first grade and Surae is getting ready to start 3 year old kindergarten!

Graham, Surae, and I joined Otter Creek Water Park this summer which we all loved.  Going to the pool several times a week was so much fun and Graham was able to learn how to swim.  He loves to swim underwater the most.  Surae is getting much more comfortable with the water too and I think by next summer, she’ll be swimming right beside him.

Graham and Surae have spent lots of time with their grandparents this summer which they both have loved and Michael and I have greatly appreciated!  Thanks Grands!!!

They took a trip with their Nana and Poppy to the beach and stayed at Pirateland in their camper.  They had a great time!  They were able to swim lots, go to the beach, and to the Imax theater.  Fun!

All that fun in the sun certainly wore them out!

Surae spent lots of time camping with her Pop Pop and Roni this summer too.  That girl loves her Pop Pop!!

Graham has also continued his obsession with Legos.  His little word really revolves around them:  buying them, putting them together, taking them back apart and doing it all over again, drooling over the ones he doesn’t have, watching reviews of  Legos on the computer… The boy is in love with Legos!!  I decided one day this summer to take him to Charlotte to the Lego Store as a surprise.  He loved it.  He was even able to participate in a Lego building competition and take home a mini fig.  That was the ultimate in cool for my little Lego freak!

We made a side trip on the way to the Lego Store at a Natural History Museum that was super cool.

And finally, to officially end our summer fun, Graham started 1st Grade.  He is growing up way too fast.  You always hear everyone say that, but you never understand it until you have kids and watch them do it!

I feel very lucky to have been able to spend the summer with the kids!  We stayed super busy and had so much fun and I already can’t wait to do it all over again.
