Mom & Dad come for a visit!

This weekend my mom and dad came for a visit. It had been awhile since their last visit. We were also dog sitting Lucy again, so there was a lot going on this weekend. My parents brought their new bikes down with them so we were able to go on a couple of fun rides. Friday night we got some…

Happy Easter

We had a quiet Easter this year. The weather was beautiful after a cold start to the weekend. Here are some pictures from around our house and such. We finished the firepit area!

We decided to celebrate New Years with Brazil which was 10pm our time. That way we could see a celebration and head…

Christmas Time is Here

There’s no question, Christmas has been a bit different this year. Southport cancelled ALL live events. They usually have a week long Christmas Festival with all kinds of fun activities, but this year, the events they did have were all virtual. Oak Island still had the Christmas parade this year but it was a “flip flop” parade, meaning that instead…

Happy Thanksgiving

Here are some of my Thanksgiving decorations. We got together with my friends from work for a “friendsgiving” meal at a place called Mike’s Farm. We had our own private room for dinner with just our group. After dinner, we went on a hayride to see a Christmas lights display. It was very enjoyable. On Thanksgiving day we had dinner…
