Camp Carrie and Carol

So we left Myrtle Beach, drove to Chapel Hill, did a little unloading and reloading and then got back on the road.  We were going to my parents' beach house for the week! Eddie stayed home to work (thanks, Ed!) so it was me and the boys heading down.  We had BIG plans though.

The boys went to camp at the beach-- called Sea to Sound camp... they learn about the different habitats and explore and play and they had a BALL! It was awesome!

You know who else had a ball? ME AND MY MOMMA! We had so much fun doing whatever we wanted to do whenever we wanted to do it! It was awesome!

 We dropped those cuties at camp Monday morning and this is our "FREEEEEDOM" smile as we pulled away. 

Then we headed to a tennis clinic down the beach a ways. 

After tennis, we walked across the street to the beach and had a LOVELY lunch outside,  
 Then, we proceeded to SIT in chairs and relax and drink and read and do whatever else we wanted to.  Definitely didn't suck.  At all. 

We picked up our campers at 4:00-- can you see the spring in Andy's step? He was loving camp!!

 We came home and the boys got in the hot tub for a little wind down time.  I love this picture so much:

 Bruce missed his boys all day! He kept looking in the hot tub to check on them!
 "They are really here, momma!" (and Cal is drinking a sprite with a clever coozie....)

Tuesday, we had some ready to go campers!

 Every morning, they played in this field during drop off-- they played the best games.  Can you spot Cal running?

This day, mom and I did some shopping! We hit up all our favorite spots and then had lunch on the waterfront in Beaufort.  The day started off rainy, but the clouds parted for out lunch. 
 A wild horse walked across this beach as we sat there eating.  Pretty cool to watch!

We came home for  a little chill out time before pick up-- Bruce was all about chilling out with his grandma. 

Wednesday was SOUND day for the campers.  They were going exploring in the sound and they were PUMPED!

We picked up the crew and headed straight for the pool where the boys practiced their dives.
 The wind was whipping out there.  

Thursday was basically our favorite day.  We started out by taking the dogs on a long walk that ended at the gazebo-- can you see Bruce? 
 HAPPY boy!
 Then we played tennis.... and it was HOT hot hot hot.  We sweat like you would not believe.  It was noon and we were running around a court-- what were we thinking?! But it was too much fun to stop. 

After tennis, we threw on swim suits and headed out in the kayak.  We went all over the sound, drinking our hard earned beer.  
 Until it started raining-- so we retreated to the deck to drink champagne instead. 

Friday was the last day of camp.  They put on a little skit and it was just adorable! Cal was the main "speaker" which was funny, and unexpected.   Andy was a fish.  Which isn't unexpected...
 This camp was right on the beach and it was just gorgeous. 
 Friday at 7, Andy couldn't take it any longer.  He passed out in grandma's bed.  He was cooked.  It was a long week, going 9-4 every single day. 
 Cal curled up....on the dog bed.....and had some good rest time. 

My brother's wife was down in Savannah with his girls and Jackson was at camp, so Chris came down solo.  He lost his dog a few months ago (sob sob) so he got some gooooood pup snuggles in with Bruce.  He LOVED Bruce-- it made my heart happy.  Bruce was fond of him too-- they had lots of snuggle time together.  

Talk about a great week!!!!
