The weekend started off not looking too good. We were expecting a hurricane to hit on the Fourth. Bella woke up on the morning of the 3rd with a fever and upset tummy, so I ended up spending the day home with her. She was pretty sick and spent most of the day sleeping, which is highly unusual for her.
The 7U had their championship game that night. Bella slept in her wagon (bless her heart, such a trooper). The boys dominated and 10-run ruled Western Branch for the win. I have the cutest third baseman (funny he plays the same position as his older brother, and the same position his Dad once played).
The hurricane ended up not hitting us hard at all, and the weather could not have been more perfect for the Fourth. We had intended to spend the day cleaning. Josh wanted to work on the garage. Until we got a text from some friends inviting us for an impromptu pool party at their house. The boys had a great time, as did the adults. We finished up the night with pizza at the Nobles'.
The fireworks had been moved to Saturday the 5th (in anticipation of Hurricane Arthur which was a dud). We headed down to the beach with Jodi and the kids to meet Mark & Cathy. We ended up hooking up with the Nobles & Chavis'. We decided to stay for the fireworks. We got to see two sets - the oceanfront and Sandbridge, so it was well worth it. It did get cold after the sun went down; Jackson was whiny, and Bella still doesn't like fireworks. But all in all, it was another great day. Beautiful weather, and even better company.
We asked Cameron who he wanted to invite to the beach and he said "Jake!". They already had plans to meet other friends earlier that day but made it down to our spot later so that the boys could hang out.
We finally had a stay-at-home day on Sunday. The boys had a basketball game at the field house (which we lost 39-9 but Jackson looked great and had fun, so that's all that matters). Followed by baseball practice for Jack & Kaleb.
The neighborhood kids, Darius & Malik, came over. The boys spent time in the pool and played some basketball in the driveway. It was a nice quiet end to the weekend.
My name is Kaci. I am a working mom of 3. Wife to Josh. Mom to Jackson, Cameron & Isabella. My life is dinner, homework, baseball, basketball, grocery lists, laundry, wine, video games, and bath time. I started this blog because I am passionate about photography and journaling, and because I wanted a place to write it all down, to rememeber little details so easily forgotten in the mad rush that is the life of a family of 5. Through my photos and words, I endeavor to capture our story.
