Camping and a Carnival

Let's skip the excuses on the long overdue blog post and get right to it, shall we?  Yeah, I thought so.

We went camping in Ocracoke.  We had a great time.  It was in June but I'm just now posting.  I'm slack.  Sorry.  Oh, but I said I wasn't going to go into that.  Sweet!  Smooth sailing from here on out.

We played on the beach all day.  It was great.  Kingston didn't go to sleep either night until about 11:30.  We just let him play the iTouch until he couldn't keep his eyes open any longer.  Sometimes you just do what you gotta do.  We did.

Kingston was not so impressed with the Ocracoke lighthouse, having seen the Cape Hatteras up close and having climbed the Corolla.  Ah, well.  It killed some time and he fell asleep on the truck ride back to the campsite so it was worth it.

Surprisingly, we kept the mosquitoes at bay.  Worse, perhaps, were the sandspurs (which Kingston called sandbars).  He is still worried about sandbars any time he steps somewhere that is natural ground and not a man-made ground of sorts.

My 2 favorite boys on the ferry.  Well, my 2 favorite boys in the world, who happened to be on the ferry when the picture was taken.   You know what I mean.


A few days after coming home from our camping trip (or maybe it was a few weeks-it was so long ago I can't even remember) a friend of mine took this picture of Kingston and Nigel at the top of the Ferris wheel at a local carnival.  Kingston was so brave.  He wasn't scared at all, just got chilly at the top.  Nigel certainly didn't mind the extra snuggles.

We've been busy this summer.  So busy I haven't had time to blog.  Or at least that's my current excuse.  Oh, wait.  No excuses.  Enjoy this post!  Who knows when there will be another one. ;)

Thank goodness a post from Lori. I had withdrawals from author Lori! Please don't make us wait so long between posts. It was super cool to read what your family has been up to this summer. Let us know what you have done during these hot, humid days in July! I don't like sandbars either Kingston! Be careful of those things. Thank you for a great post!
