Things have been super busy this summer and it has only just begun! Not that I’ve been great at blogging lately anyway, but it’s getting harder and harder to find a free moment to sit down to write, and when I do, there is always something else to be done (like keeping the house relatively straight or packing up a box or two)
Anyway, I’ll do this catch-up in 2 segments, because it covers quite the span of time.
First up, our trip to Charleston a few weeks ago! As soon as we got to town, we met up with James, Heidi, Sam, and Emmaleigh for some drinks at Westbrook – Mexican Cake anyone? Our stay in Charleston was just one night before we made the 3 hour trip south to St. Simon, GA for my “cousins” wedding (family friend from way back). The wedding was Saturday so as mom, Sarah and I went to the celebration, Brooke did some hanging out by the pool 🙂

It was so great catching up with Brad, who we hadn’t seen in round-about 5 years. We also got to meet his lovely wife, Jenn, who was so sweet. They have a little one a little bit younger than Brooke, so we bonded over toddler stories.
Henry got in some relaxation and pool time – he loved it!
We took a few walks down to the Village and out onto the Pier.
Brooke also got in some fun time at the pool in the backyard. It was so great to have that amenity!
And the cutest picture of all – Henry and Connor with HUGE smiles. Just awesome 🙂
Back in Charleston, we got in some beach time – Brooke had a blast playing in the sand and in the water!
And at the tail end of our trip, Uncle Sam reenlisted into the Navy – congrats Sam!
I’ll be back soon with another update, including Brooke’s BIG 2nd Birthday!
