J's aunt, uncle, and cousins live in the OBX and we always enjoy our visits with them.
This time Brent's girlfriend Fay (Faye? Doesn't matter because I call her Ivy. Don't you think she looks like an Ivy?) was there and we got to meet her.
She's 7 feet tall (really only 5'9 or 5'10 but compared to me it might as well be 7'0) and plays the fiddle in several bands.
Really cool girl. Like, put a ring on the finger, Brent!
The guys built sand castles with BigBoy while BabyCakes pulled us deeper and deeper into the ocean.
She is annoyed in this pic because she isn't in the water.
For 3 hours she was barely on dry land. NO fear in that girl... she'll be our little surfer baby.
J and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary last week. Saturday night we had a nice dinner alone and then went to a movie.
His family has always been so wonderful about encouraging us to have time alone when we come to visit. When BigBoy was a baby it was the ONLY way we ever had a break.
Can't you tell Aunt Penny hates spending time with the children?
BigBoy and BabyCakes got their hair and eye color from J's side of the family. (Scroll to the top pic again.)
Their fair skin is from me.
But the sweetness is 100% their own.
