To continue the previous post...
Our vacation was filled with lots of activities- some for us, some for the kids. We visited Lane Orchards, where we took a tour, ate lunch, and had scrumptious peach cobbler and ice cream.
Tammy and I had a girls days out. We went antiquing, found fabulous finds and generally enjoyed not having to rush home to the kids. We ate lunch at a great little tea house, called Tara's Tea Thyme.
The guys also had some time to themselves. Don and Chris went out to a movie- yes, a real theater!! They took a motorcycle ride. And the most "guy" thing of all, the two men took Jason to an aviation museum. Jason and Chris took a spin in a flight simulator, which they both just loved!
We hit a kiddie water park, where the kids played in water slides just their size. I'd like to say that we girls basked in the sun, but we did have to watch the kids. They enjoyed splashing, and Tammy was brave enough to go down the adult water slide with Jason and Shelby at the same time!!
We spent plenty of time in the pool, and both kids learned to enjoy it. I think Jason would have been swimming in a few more days. Adam was becoming braver and braver too. Shelby is already a little fish- and not even 3 yet!
We enjoyed a lovely southern breakfast at Don's sister Judy's house. She is truly a wonderful woman- totally loved my kids! Her backyard has a tire swing, and both my boys loved it. I can see we'll have to get one too. (that and a pool- hint hint).
And finally, Chris and I celebrated out 5th wedding anniversary. We went out to a Japanese steak house- alone- and had an adult dinner!! Wow. These years have gone by fast. Chris is by best buddy and the love of my life.
We have been truly blessed to have such wonderful friends as Tammy and Don. Tammy and I are going on 21+ years of friendship. We met in college, and the rest is history!
thanks, my best friend!! Love you- Lee
