It was time for our annual Memorial weekend trip to Florida with our friends Rylee and Jesse, and we were so ready! Last year we had to take Crew, and while we love our children dearly, we also love a good vacation with no kid responsibility. It was a little change of events than previous years, because this time Rylee and Jesse had their little boy Cash. He was a dream and we were more than happy to have him!
Because I still have a broken elbow, I was essentially banned from water activities, mostly because the rip current was super strong, and if I were to get taken out, I wouldn't really be able to swim back in. So I stayed ankle to knee deep and enjoyed myself just fine. Ethan and Jesse spent some quality time hanging out in the water, while Rylee and I enjoyed hanging out with Cash in his little blowup pool they brought and filled with a little water.
The weekend was filled with beach time, naps, lots of snacks, Barbara Jean's (a restaurant right on the river, the food is amazing!), TPC Sawgrass for brunch (the French toast was fantastic), Settlers of Catan, Marvel movies, and so many awesome conversations! We always love our trip to Florida, and feel so grateful this has become our tradition with some of our favorite people!

This haircut was a long time coming. With Nixon it was so much easier because he hair was just kind of straight and thin. But Crew has thicker curly hair, and I swear it matches so much of his personality!
But after the worker at Costco asked if "she" wanted a treat, I knew it was time. It still took a couple weeks to get it done, but it happened.
It was so stinking long! But look at him now. Thankfully he kept some of his curl!

I think it went really well....

North Carolina isn't known for its snow during the winter, but for some reason, this year it dumped on us. By the time it was done we got about 4-5 inches. That meant everything in the city basically shut down, and we were able to have Ethan home from work!
Crew was not interested, but these two boys were living it up! They would have stayed out there all day if we actually had snow gear, but living in the south, we don't have any of that.
