North Carolina

Well since we didn't get orders last week (surprise, surprise) I decided I needed to go see my hubby. Me and Taylor left Thursday (wish I could have taken Kaylin too...but I would have lost my mind trying to take 2 babies on an airplane by myself!!) We thought Nathan was just gonna have Friday night, Saturday, and Sunday off but he was able to get off Thursday night and didn't have to be back til Tuesday morning!! We are so blessed. The 1st Sergeant even gave Nathan a ride to the airport to pick up the rental car and I guess that is unheard of when your only an E2 like Nathan. It worked out so perfectly! We spent the first night at the E.R. due to some birth control issues (call me if you want details...not really appropriate for the blog! LOL). We got to the hotel at about 6:00 Friday morning and slept until like 12:30. Taylor was awesome!! She slept all night while we were at the hospital and all morning while we were catching up on our sleep! Friday we went shopping and just explored Raleigh. Not too exciting but it was just nice to be together! Saturday we went to the Beach!!! Don't let the pictures fool you...we were only there for about 20 min! Kinda hard when you have a baby who can't be out in the sun for too long! It was still nice to see the ocean and walk in the sand...and take some pictures!

Yes...Taylor is still a chub-a-lub! She's wearing 3-6 months...and she's only 2 months old!
Sunday we took a road trip to Ashville, NC...it was about 3 hours away. We went to the Biltmore...its the largest home in America! It was really cool!
Here were are driving around on the Biltmore roads....its on like 8,000 acres of land so there was a lot of driving around!
Taylor was SOOO sick of her carseat...so we took her out...don't worry, we were only going like 5-10 miles an hour!
This is what you saw when you first walked into the house! It was so cool!
Nathan took A TON of pictures of the house inside and got in trouble 3 times...one guy even called on him!! "There is a tall man with a hat who keeps taking pictures after I told him not to. His wife has a baby..." Nathan was talking to me while the guy was calling on him so I didn't hear it so I wouldn't worry. But he told me afterwards what happened...he's such a fart!
Here's the view of the front yard.
There was like 5 different gardens...we walked around like 2 before I decided we were done. It was SOOO hot and humid!!

Here's the road we were driving around on....so pretty!!
It was such a fun weekend! I hated having to say goodbye AGAIN!!!

Here's proof!!

Taylor can smile!! She's so stinking cute! And so stinking chubby!!

Playing Dress-up

Kaylin's new favorite pass-time is Dress up! She is such a girl and I love it!!! Thanks Grandma Sherwood for all the dress up clothes!!
I kept saying "Smile Kaylin" and she just kept doing everything EXCEPT that!


We took Kaylin to Jeeperz a couple weeks ago. It was pretty fun. The AC was broken tho so we were only there for about an hour and a half! She LOVED the "choo choo" Thats all she wanted to ride on...I didn't get any pics of it tho...I know...I'm lame. But you can enjoy all the carasel pics that my mom took!

She went down this slide a bazillion times... And the last time was just as fun as the first!!

4th of July pics

We went to Joe City for the 4th. It was a lot of fun! We watched the kids in the parade, then headed over to the park! They had all kinds of stuff there! Kaylin had a blast! She got to play all day with my cousin Brook's kids. (Love you guys!! Wish we lived closer!) We watched fireworks that night in Holdbrook...sorry no pics of that! They were really good tho!
Kaylin spent most of the morning in that little yellow pool in the background of this pic...I think at one point there were about 6 little kids squeezed in there! LOL! Shandi, your kids are so cute!

Church with 2 kids...

...is interesting.

During Sunday School my dad was holding Taylor and she started to get the hiccups...really really loud hiccups. As soon as he got up to take her out (yes, they were loud enough to be disturbing the class) the nursery leader comes in with Kaylin because she pooped and Kaylin announces to the whole Sunday School class "MAMA POO POO!" I wasn't embarrassed of my kids but I was embarrassed that I could not stop laughing as I was trying to get my bag ready so I could go change Kaylin. Its the worst when you're trying to be quiet and you have the giggles!

Time to complain a little.

Nathan is going to the beach this weekend. I am happy that he gets to go do something fun...but why can't we have a holiday TOGETHER and have fun TOGETHER!!! I am sooo very very sick of all this. And its still going to be 4 more weeks before we even find out where we are going!! He's not even doing anything where he is. Its so dumb! Send him somewhere so he can actually do something! Send him somewhere so his wife will stop being so annoying and texting him 24/7! Send him somewhere so his wife won't get mad at him for not texting her back when she texts him 24/7! Send him somewhere so we can go to the beach together! Send him somewhere so we can be a freaking family again!!

Okay...complaint over.
