What I did on my summer vacation

Ugh! I looked at my blog and realized I have not posted for all of July.  In all fairness, I had not been able to knit due to surgery...then went on vacation.
So now I am back, *groan* and have finally started knitting again.  I am working on a great cameo purse my Mom gave me ( yeah mom!) and I just started some socks in a beautiful blue.  As soon as I get around to taking pics I will post my works in progress.
So what did I do on my summer vacation....Relaxed...

Well as much as you can with a house full of kids... My girls plus Lydia and Elizabeth

This is the house in Kure Beach, NC.. we realized how much we missed living there during our vacation:(
These are of the Kure Beach fishing pier
Katie and Elizabeth play together on the beach.

This is Elizabeth and Kennedy on the beach cooperating...the later ones get bad quickly as nap time neared

This is the whole crew of kids from 16yrs to  11 months ( Back Left to  front right--Lydia holding William, Emily holding Kennedy, Randy, Nathan, Jacob, Elizabeth, Katie , and Rachel)   You have no idea how difficult this picture was to get!!!!

Kennedy on the beach,  I have a matching one of Katie at this age, on the same beach, too.

We also stopped by some friends house on the way home and this is the view from their deck, gorgeous isn't it!  These are the three boats he has in the water, you should see the collection he has on the front lawn.  Nikki put her foot down about not bringing anymore boats home, so now they just seem to come to him!!!!

And before we left, Ken helped Nikki get a rat snake out of the yard with the help of their great dog Streaker! What vacation is complete without snake handling!
