A Little Vacation Time!

We're leaving this afternoon to go camping for two nights with some friends. Boy, does it take a lot of packing for just a little time spent camping! Since a lot of it is food, at least we won't be coming home with as much stuff.

We'll be getting home on Wednesday. Then I'll be doing several loads of laundry and packing to leave for the Outer Banks of NC on Saturday. We'll probably be there a little over a week. We're very blessed in the fact that some friends of ours own a house down there. We go down when they go, so we don't have to check out on the usual Saturday or Sunday. We avoid a lot of traffic that way! Plus, our friends are kind enough to let us stay for free! We just buy most of the groceries for the week and maybe take their family out for dinner. It's a nice, relaxing week.

Since we'll be away a lot, I probably won't be too bloggy during the next two weeks! My internet access will be very limited while we're in NC.

Below, I have posted some random pictures. The first two are from July 4th. We spent the day at a neighbor's party, and they have a pool. My kids didn't want me to take their picture that day, so this is all I have!

The picture below is of Cooper in Cape May, NJ, last month. Eric and the boys went fishing down there with some friends. Poor Sam didn't catch anything.

And here is one wet doggy! Otto had a much needed bath on Saturday. After we washed him, he just ran around the yard like a maniac! He was a tired boy that night.

Well, this has really been a post about nothing. I just wanted to let my bloggy friends know that I may be MIA for the next two weeks. I pray that all of you get to enjoy some rest and relaxation this summer!
