Big Sibling Class

Sunday afternoon, we took Camryn to a Big Sibling Class at the hospital where her baby sister will be born. It was a really cute class, and she was so excited to go!

Happy Birthday, Caleb!

Both of our sweet nephews are celebrating big birthdays this year. The first is our nephew Caleb, who turns 5 today! He's such a big boy now! Caleb is one of the smartest, kindest, most tenderhearted little boys I know. He is super-special, and we are proud to be his aunt and uncle! We love you, Caleb! Happy Birthday!

Easter Party

I completely forgot about posting these pictures! The week before Easter Sunday, our Children's Ministry held an Easter Party. The kids had a great time hunting for eggs, playing in the gym, and eating way too many sweets! Here are some pictures from the fun afternoon.

Hunting for eggs in the children's wing ... it was supposed to rain that day, so the hunt was moved inside.

Spring Break Continued - Oak Island Trip

As always, we enjoyed our time at Oak Island this past week. We didn't do anything special - just hit a couple of our favorite spots and restaurants and enjoyed some time together away as a family!

Eating lunch and watching a movie on the way down

Doing a puzzle at the maritime museum in Southport

Supper at PJ's at the Marina - one of our favorites

Riding the ferry on the way to the aquarium

Aquarium pics

Ice cream at Frosty's ... we went both nights!

Relaxing and playing around at the condo

Spring Break Thus Far

I have been counting down the days until Spring Break. Other than just needing some time off, we've had some fun things planned, plus some things that needed to get done for the baby's room. Monday we met Jason's sister, Alison, and our nephew, Caleb, at Riverbanks Zoo in Columbia. The kids had a great time taking on the zoo together.

Tuesday, I spent the whole day arranging all of Camryn's old clothes by size, putting them away neatly in storage bins, and cleaning and organizing both Camryn and the baby's closets. Here's the majority of the clothes in piles ...

... and then put away neatly in the storage bins!

And since our changing table came in yesterday, we are well on our way to getting the nursery in order finally. Next up on the Spring Break agenda - Oak Island!
