Ocean Isle Beach 2010 with the Elrod's

All I can really say is I needed a vacation from my vacation!!!

Wow! It's hard work with babies at the beach even when you have helping hands!

We had so much fun at the beach especially with our family. It's not often all of our schedules allow us to be at the beach together! So we are Thankful for the time we had!

We had a blast!!!

Crawford LOVES the beach! He always has! HevIs not scared of anything and does not mind to be covered from head to toe in sand...even though his dad and uncles hate it!!

Caroline had it made! We put her under a tent, with a fan in a swing! She was in heaven!

Me....well I think I sat still maybe 20 mins at a time....maybe!

Jake ...the boys played a lot of golf...and he got a hole in one!

I have never been to OIB but I loved it. We were at the very end of the island that faces Sunset beach...when the tide was low you could walk way out almost to sunset. Crawford loved it! It was so peaceful where we stayed.  Below are a lot of pictures!!!

Big Decisions

Most of you probably know....but we made the big decision for me to stay at home with the Kids. I think it is one of the hardest and easiest things to do! Obviously I choose to stay with my Kids over work anyday....however I worked with such a great group of people it was hard to leave! And staying at home isn't the easiest thing to do! Wow!!! I went from working full time to being at home with a newborn and 2 1/2 year old and let me tell you the first few weeks were rough!!! Crawford had so much change in his life from a new house, new baby, new pre-school, and being home with me more. We had a tough few weeks but we got through it and it is so much better! I am loving every minute of being with them...and I think I am doing okay! This morning I told Crawford that I was so proud of him for being so good today. His response to me was "I am proud of you too mommy"!  Oh how he melts my heart!!!!  I am so fortunate to be able to share this time with our kids and am so Thankful to Jacob for allowing me to do so! It's not an easy job but I wouldn't trade it for the world! I know in a blink they will be all grown up and I get tears in my eyes just thinking about it!!!
