Semi Wordless Wednesday


For this weeks wordless Wednesday I tought I would share with you some pictures from a trip we took to visit family.  A few years ago we went down to Florida to visit our great aunt and uncle.  They have always enjoyed flying and building planes.  They live on a runway basically.  The handful of homes in the area all surround the runway.  They all fly and have hangers.  They have 2 planes but what is more strange is that I actually went up in one.  My husband about fell over when I said I would go.  You see I have a fear of heights.  Now flying commercial jets doesn't bother me at all, but this is a whole lot different.  I told my husband the only reason why I decided to go was first I really trusted his counsins flying abilities and knew that he could get us down if there was a problem and second I felt like this was a once in a lifetime opportunity.  How often will I ever get to do this?  I had to go.  Here is the plane we went up in.

Starting to take off.

Actually off the ground. I have to say my stomach dropped a little bit here.

Some views from the plane.

We flew over the Swanee river.

Here is the runway as we were about to land.

The hanger.

Their second plane.

You have to drive on the runway to get to the house.

All in all it was a scary but fun experience. Hope you enjoyed.  Have a wonderful Wednesday.

Miscellaneous Monday

Good morning all,

Well I wish I could say I have been doing a ton of fun things since arriving in NC, but truth be told all we've doing is projects, projects and more projects.  It's getting embarrassing, I think the Home Depot staff think we now work there (ha-ha).  

The little one did turn 14 months old yesterday though.  I took some pictures but haven't transferred them to the computer yet.  Here are a few pictures from his second haircut before we left.  The kid is only 14 months and has already needed two haircuts.  His hair grows so fast.  I guess he takes after me with that.

Hope you all had a great weekend.

We finally made it.

We finally made it to North Carolina after a wonderful weekend.   We started off in Michigan for my father's birthday and father's day.  On Sunday we headed to the yacht club for a father's day brunch.  The little one had so much fun at the lake watching the boats, walking on the docks and putting his feet in the water.


On Monday we headed out and along the way found this perfect little park in West Virginia to have a picnic and let the little one stretch his legs. It was on the Ohio River.  It gave us a nice break from the car too.

Monday we made it to our first destination, Lexington, Virginia to stop and see some friends.  We had a wonderful time catching up.

This morning we were up bright and early to head to NC.  Only a 4 hour drive today.  The little one did great the whole way from Michigan.  We were so glad.  We got the car and trailer unloaded and have lots to put away.  The little one is taking the longest nap ever right now.  He is tired out.  We all have hardly had any sleep the last several days.  I think I will sleep good tonight.  Hope to catch up with all of you soon.

Happy Birthday

I want to wish my wonderful father a very Happy Birthday.  He turns 88 today.  Luckily we get to spend this day/weekend with him in Michigan.  Even though he will be getting some presents, the only present he wants is this little guy :) They are buds and have the best time together.  Happy Birthday dad!! We Love You.

Pink and Green Thursday

For Pink and Green Thursday I wanted to share with you new company I found at a trade show I went to a while back.  It is called Studio 59.  They had the cutest stuff.  You pick out the necklace of your choice such as sterling silver, leather cord, satin cord etc and then pick out the pendant along with any spacer beads.  I wish you could see all the cute pendants they had at the show. Their website doesn't seem to show everything. 

I ended up getting a green pendant with a pink crab (which doesn't appear to be on their website yet) and the matching cord and spacer beads.  It's just perfect for summer.

Happy pink and green Thursday.
