Papa, Nana, Battleships, and Ice Cream

November 22nd, 2010 Posted in Uncategorized

We’ve sure been busy!  Papa and Nana came for a short visit.  We went to the park to do some swinging and walking.

We went to Krispy Kreme on Saturday morning.  We go there every Saturday.  We like to keep it healthy.  Take a look at the faces in this photo.  Donuts are serious business, y’all.

We visited the battleship.  Here’s Papa hanging out and being a weirdo.

Will sort of took control of the camera on the battleship trip.  Out of the 100 photos he took, about 4 have people in them.  These two I have posted are the only ones with people we actually know in them.  Get out your magnifying glass, that’s Marian, my Mom, and me down there.  We had already escaped the battleship and were on to the vending machines full of animal crackers.  Marian threw up the animal crackers a little later.

This was Halloween night.  Marian’s second Halloween.  Also her second Halloween of having no costume or fun and festive activities.  It is my goal to change this next year.  My daughter does not need a stick-in-the-mud for a mother!  We will totally rock it next year!  Who wants to come?

We finally remembered to bring some bread with us to the park a couple days ago.  First we brought the bread to Greenfield lake and let me tell you, it wasn’t pretty. Approximately 10,000 ducks, geese, and other birds descended upon us and Marian was not too happy.  We took some bread to the more tame Hugh Mc Crae park and fed 5 loud Canada geese and it was a lot less scary.

This bridge here had been underwater for a while so Marian was excited to see she could finally cross it again.  And again.  And Again.

Today we went downtown to get some ice cream.  The Christmas tree was already up.  Will had the patience to stop and take a picture while I made my way to the ice cream shop with the Pearl.  You do not tell the Pearl there will be ice cream and the pause to take pictures.  That is just unacceptable.

A nice lady offered to take a picture of us today.  We now have a grand total of 4 photographs of us together as a family.

My girl is ridiculously cute.  Oh.  My.  Goodness.

After we ate our ice cream, we made our way back to the Christmas tree.  Whenever Marian sees something Christmas-y she yells out “MAMAS!”.  It took me forever to figure out she was trying to say Christmas.  Her excitement is contagious though and I’m very much looking forward to the Holidays.

The town we live in is pretty awesome.  There are many interesting places and events always going on.  I am really looking forward to the North Carolina Holiday Flotilla.

It looks like a fun time!

I am one lucky lady/wife/mama.
