I think we had the most, fun, beach trip ever last weekend. We left for Oak Island after preschool on Thursday and got home at bedtime Sunday night. We went to the beach as soon as we got their Thursday and the girls were so excited. We then went back twice Friday and Saturday and again on Sunday morning. We had breakfast at the house and then ate lunch and dinner at all of the local restaurants. We didn't even leave the island. We played at the park. I got to ride the bike a few days around the island. Jovie took her naps after lunch at the house or on the beach. Haven explored for treasure and actually found a few. Jovie ate enough sand to fill a sand box. Jeremy and I just took it all in and realized we probably had the best possible weather for a beach trip. The temperature was perfect, the water wasn't too cold, and sun was shining nonstop. We are so blessed to have a wonderful place to stay at the beach.

We started this blog when Haven Noel was born on December 9, 2008 at 32 weeks and 2 days. We have been so blessed to watch her grow and now she is a big sister to Jovie Patricia. She was born on February 24, 2011 at 35 weeks 2 days. Both girls were little peanuts, but absolutely perfect. Jensen Phillip was born on November 28, 2012 at full term and we thank God for that miracle. We love God, our family, traveling, sports, and laughing.
