Today, it was just me & Cam. The other 2 are still in Hatteras with the grandparents; Josh had to work. He rarely ever gets time with just us. So, I knew I had to make the most of it.
We took our bikes to the beach to ride the board walk. It was a really pretty, and hot, day. We struggled to get both bikes in the back of my car. But he was a huge help. Afterwards (and it took a lot of time and we were both sweating), he fist bumped me.
We ate lunch at Waterman's. We had been there once before for his birthday 2 years ago. We sat outside. He ordered a Caesar salad and mozzarella sticks. Watching him eat his salad, I could have cried. Afterwards, he said he could easily take a nap on the deck with the breeze blowing in from the ocean.
We rode nearly 30 blocks and turned around. On the way back, I suggested we stop for salt water taffy. He didn't know what it was. He took his time filling up his bag with various flavors. Afterwards, he saw mini buckets filled with taffy with names on them. He picked one out that said "Isabella" and asked if we would get it. "She loves candy", he said.
On the ride home, he told me "that was fun". I let him watch basketball videos on my phone, and we rode home in silence. And that was okay.
I only got this picture. And that's okay, too, because I was just enjoying this time with him.
He rarely smiles and shows his teeth. I wish he did it all the time.
This weekend was packed full of love, celebrating, and friends & family.
Firstly, I am expecting a Great NIECE this December. I attended my first ever gender reveal to learn the sex. It was truly one of the coolest, most emotional things I've ever seen. I was pretty convinced Sarah was having a baby boy. Well, I was wrong.
Bella's 6th birthday party was the very next day. It went terrific, and I know Bella was the happiest little girl at the end of the night. All of her favorite little people showed up. Along with all of her family. They swam, cooked food in her kitchen, played lots of Barbies, rode bikes and scooters, and played house. Josh made the best wings and the kids enjoyed pizza and snacks. And, of course, strawberry poke cake for the birthday girl.
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, middle school, wine, video games, and schedules. I started this blog because I love taking pictures, and I needed a place to document our life. I wanted a place to write it all down, to remember 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.
