Phish

I'm home now, got in yesterday afternoon. Typing under a pile of laundry. We just went to the food store this morning, so I'm feeling like we are about back to status quo. It's been raining this morning, but I'm hoping it clears up this afternoon. I promised J we could wash the car. We don't do a big through job or anything, he just likes to spray the water. It's something different from the baby pool.
I feel like we crammed 8 days of a vacation into about 4. We had bad weather almost the entire time. It started raining on our drive there. It continued until the day before we left. It was beautiful right before we got in the car to go home. Isn't that always the way? :) We went shopping on Friday. We went to the beach on Saturday but it started raining and we went to the Aquarium instead. We went to an area on the sound side on Sunday, that's the only day J got to swim. What a little fish (his word phish) though! We had a good time regardless.
Don't worry, that's just the way the sound water looks, it's not polluted or muddy or anything. :) Nags Head, the beach, is actually very rough. It's not some place to take very young children because the riptide is horrible. Several small children drown there every summer, in  the blink of an eye they go in the water and the current grabs them before the parents have any idea. It's very frightening. So, until J is a proficient swimmer (and even then!) we will stay to the sound side. 
I haven't had time to do any scrapping yet, but I did upload the photos and edit a few last night. I feel like I have tons and tons of photos at the moment. To answer a question that was emailed to me, I'm not a professional photographer. I don't book photo shoots or weddings or anything. I just take pictures of my friends and family. I don't want to do that for a living, I think it would take away some of the joy of it for me. Too much pressure. I know, I say this as someone who saves lives for a living. It always cracks me up though, people are willing to pay for my photos, but they want the medical advice for free. :) 
Well, I do want to try to scrap something during this nap time, so I guess I should go. After being off the computer for a while, it's like everything is new again! Happy Tuesday! Until tomorrow.

Why is it that when we go on vacation we have 3x the laundry to do than if we had just stayed home? What a stinker.

Sorry about the rain. Glad to see J enjoy it though.

I like the group Phish and the Ben and Jerry Ice Cream Phish. Phish is good. :o)

Sorry about the rain. Wish it could have been sunny the entire time, but then you wouldn't have wanted to come home and do your laundry. Hmmm...

Hope you got your scrap time in and glad to have you back!

Great photos of Nags! We're leaving for Duck on Saturday. Hoping to have good weather! We're taking my Mom, who's never been. My husband and I have the same conversation too about buying a house there, but then we think - what about hurricanes?
