Learning to Talk and Spell

Lauren was so proud that Addie started saying "Jesus" right before the Easter weekend.

Bubba also chose this time to teach Dalton how to spell "Holy Sh#*".

Get Well Soon

Get Well Note from Bubba
Dear Nana, I hope you arm feels better. Love your concerned grandson, Bubba

I had rotator cuff surgery on February 19th. I sure missed seeing the kids and picking up Addie while I was recuperating. Bubba's get well note made things a lot better.

Pier fishing Weekend

We set out for Jennette's Pier on Saturday afternoon. Big mistake. After living in Chesapeake for almost 20 years you would think we would know better-Saturday is change over day for the Outer Banks hotels. After sitting in traffic for 2 hours and only getting 1/2 way, we turned around and headed back home.

We ate some sandwiches and went to Little Island Fishing Pier in Sandbridge. It was low tide but Terry tried fishing anyway. Dalton went with him for a while but then he lost his flip flop off the side of the pier. A lady on the beach found it and threw it back up to us.

The kids and I stayed on the beach and watched a photographer take family pictures and the surfers trying to catch a wave.

On Sunday morning we got up early and headed for Nags Head again. After a 1 1/2 hour drive we reached our destination. Terry paid his fees and set up for fishing. It wasn't long before he was catching spots. The kids were more than happy to help reel them in- sometimes two at a time.

A small thunderstorm came up but we waited it out under the shelter. The sun came back out and it was so hot but the fish were biting better than ever. They fished for a couple more hours and we headed home around noon time.
After Jill and Darren picked the kids up, Terry and I took a 3 hour nap. We had to get rested up for our next big adventure.

Amazing what a little rain can do...
They've doubled in size since last week.
Can't wait to see how they taste
