What we did on Summer vacation

Phillip and I were fortunate to do a lot this summer. We kicked the summer off by celebrating our third wedding anniversary.

The first week of July we went up to Boothbay Harbor, Maine. Robi and Will invited us up there for about a week for some R&R before they shipped out for two years in the Peace Corps. Maine is an incredible place! So beautiful and peaceful. Dolly even enjoyed being up there. She had so much energy and enjoyed running around the front yard and exploring the rocky bay.

Robi and Will were off to South Africa in the middle of July.They had a going away party a few days before departing and Robi took this opportunity to mimic Phillip and one of his many faces.

Next we were off to South Carolina for the annual Hilton Head Vacation. What a great time we had! Gramma, Uncle Dan and Aunt Julia and their kids, Bob, Meg, Julia, and many others were able to joing us for a few days! Not only did we have a reunion of sorts but we were also able to celebrate Mom and Dad's 60th Birthdays.

After Hilton Head we drove up through Atlanta on our way back to Asheville. We took in a Braves game one evening. It happened to be the same night that Barry Bonds hit his 755th home run. Not an hour before that happend we took some pictures of Phillip infront of the stadium-appropriately located at 755 Hank Aaron Avenue! At least Hank didn't have to dope up to get his home runs!

We then went up to Boone for a few days to see some friends and get my hair cut. I cut 12 inches off for Locks of Love! What do you think of my new coif?

Before we had to head back to work we took Phillip's Mom to an Asheville Tourists game. You gotta love minor league ball for the intimate stadiums, great seats no matter where you sit, and of course the cheap beer!

All in all we have had a great summer! We got to see many family and friends and enjoy some time together to relax. Just when we thought all the fun was over until next year we discovered one more thing we did on our summer vacation....
We Made A Baby!

That's right! We're PREGNANT! Baby Brown is due in mid-April!

Next summer should prove just as busy but three times the fun.

Congrats Kelly and Phillip! That is awesome news, and I am very excited for the both of you! You will have to post the sonograms!

I am glad to see that the name "Two Braids" is still around. That brings back many memories my friend.
