Home, Home On the Range...

Where the deer and the antelope play...

Okay, not quite, but we are home nonetheless and quite thrilled to be so! I cannot believe it has been two weeks to the day since I last posted, but I did kind of vow to take a technology break and that I did!

We had a blast on our vacation and I actually got to read a book that was not school related and finally finish the last of the series. We went to Yorktown, Jamestown, Busch Gardens and hung out with Mr. Clean's cousin John for dinner and dessert. We hit the beach, pool and lazy river (at the condo on North Myrtle Beach) everyday without fail, went to Dixie Stampede (a hoot) and several geocaches. Life on the beach was good. To top it off, we had almost no humidity and weather in the low 80's.

On the way home we stopped at the Battleship North Carolina in Wilmington and spent a couple hours on a self tour of the ship. It was a blast and quite hands on. The kids were thrilled to be able to open the oven doors in the bakery and see the large metal muffin tins that served to feed a battleship full of men. We called it a field trip and enjoyed it immensely.

So now we are home and I have some blogs to catch up on, MOMS Club work to get done and luggage to unpack (plus figure out something for dinner!). So for now I am signing off with a promise to post pictures very soon!

We must have just missed one another in NC. I LOVE Wilmington and the Battleship! Wilmington is my favorite thing about NC (besides the friends I have there). Sounds like a great vacation!
