First embroidery project

I finished my first embroidery project!
I am so happy with it and can't wait to do more.

The back is particularly interesting!

Blue Ridge Camping Weekend

We got a wild hair.
We decided to take the kids camping in Blue Ridge.
To our credit, the "camping" aspect was camping in a pop-up tent with an attached bathroom and cooking area. Not too strenuous, right?
What we didn't expect was the downpour on rain on Friday night that left EVERYTHING muddy and not suitable for a crawler and restless toddler.
And so, the weekend was a smidge more stressful than we were all hoping.
But we did have a lot of good moments! And even some sunshine and pool time!

In the end, my need to go camping with the kids have been fulfilled for a bit. ;)

What a way to spend the first day of his 33rd year!

Courter conked-out on one of the beds after a full day of exploring Blue Ridge, hiking in the woods, and playing at the pool.

Courter's First

My baby boy turned ONE on Thursday.
I can't believe how fast this year has gone by. Time is amazing.

We celebrated today with a "Wild One" themed shower. It was so much fun!
And pretty chill.
Just a little family and some friends. It was great!
