A 2010 catch up post - Part 1

Spring Break 2010

Washington, DC

End of School Year Concerts....Goodbye 1st and 4th Grade!

Olivia and her 1st grade teacher.

Bailey and her 4th grade teacher.

Violin Concert

Piano and Voice Recitals

June 29 and September 17th

Two very special dates in my book!

Bailey turned 10 and Olivia turned 8. Goodness... time is flying by with these two.

For Bailey's birthday, she invited a few friends over for a pool party. The weather did not cooperate, so we headed over to Sports Connection for Laser Tag and games.

Not to be outdone... Olivia jumped on board with a party at Sports Connection for her birthday as well!

June - Annual Outerbanks Beach Trip

It just keeps getting easier and easier. When we began this trip together with our dear friends, Olivia was just 9 months old! Now that the kids are older....we can actually sit in chairs on the beach, have a conversation and enjoy our dinners!

August - Back to School

The girls came up with a new tradition. An "End of Summer" chocolate cake. This tradition will take place the night before school starts. I believe they think chocolate will make it ALL better.

Don't they look thrilled to be up and out the door at 7:00 am?? Where are those big smiles I was looking for? Oh wait- that was me with a big ol' smile. All day to myself. :-)

Hello 2nd and 5th grade!

September - Labor Day Weekend - Folly Beach

We went to Folly Beach with my Mom, my brother and his family. It was the first time that we have all vacationed together. We had a ball! Our children get along so well and we really enjoyed our time together.

My very talented niece, Taylor. She tumbled her way down the beach.

My very handsome nephew, Jacob. This kid cracks me up. He reminds me so much of my brother growing up!

October - Halloween
