What a wonderful and relaxing day I had yesterday! It was the first day of my twenty-eighth year and I so relished kicking my feet up, floating in the pool, spending a lazy day at our new home and being treated to a fabulous dinner by my handsome husband. Life is surely sweet and I’m currently riding a blessed sugar high.
We spent the morning in the pool, splashing in the water, laughing and watching the clouds roll by. It was heaven. Emery was well slathered in sunscreen and her bright pink hat while I was hoping for a sun kiss.
How cute are those pink ruffles and giant chubby cheeks?
After lunch we took a family ride in the mule down to the scuppernong vines. Hunter’s grandparents owned a nursery years ago and still pride themselves on the variety and deliciousness of these succulent fruits.
We eat them right off the vine.
Hunter had to stop at one of his deer food plots and toss out a new bag of corn.
He takes his hunting preparations very seriously.
Meanwhile, Emery and I hang out in the mule and she sees how tightly she can ball her fists.
More fun in the pool, this time without the pink ruffles.
The sunset over the bay was gorgeous!
Of course, we had to stop at Bud & Alley’s before dinner to watch the end of the sunset and reminisce.
Cheers to all of the fun we’ve had and all the fun to come! (If you’ve never tried the Mo-garita, you’re missing out!)
We went on to dinner at V Seagrove and proceeded to indulge in more tasty cocktails and delicious food than two people should be allowed to enjoy. Our taste buds and bellies were happy!
After an appetizer of shrimp…
