Click on the picture below for a REALLY poor quality movie I made of clips from the real tape... I'm pretty sure I won't get the Academy Award for Editing any time soon! (I have an old camera, and it only lets me convert footage in 10 second intervals.) Jen also posted about the day here, too. (Yes, she shared some of her pictures with me!)
Awut, Anger, Ayak and Achan in Virginia Beach
Anger and Achan holding the Louise Park roses from my backyard that I brought for my Dad... our first stop in Virginia Beach on Monday morning.
John C. Kennedy
I didn't catch up as much as I wanted, because I was so distracted by the Lual girls! It was their first time at the beach, so I was NERVOUS. Although it was a beautiful day, the waves were pretty big. I guessed 10 feet, but Matt brought me down to Earth! Apparently they were only 5 foot waves, but they looked HUGE to me!
Awut, Ayak, Aunt Crazy, Achan and Anger... I STILL don't understand how Jenni got their names right! Amazing.
Ayak and Nick, maxin' and relaxin'
What did you say? Oh yeah, I hear ya... it is pretty daggone brave to stand next to her in a bikini. Brave or just plain stupid. Seriously though, I'm so proud of her! And she earns it, too. Just ask her about her recent spin classes! Yikes!
Nick - I love the expression on his face! He just got his cast off, so - being the evil Mom and Aunt Crazy like we are - we kept making him run around as we giggled at his little limp. Poor guy. :)
I adore this picture of Carly and Nick. Again, it was a GREAT day.
Meanwhile, back in Richmond, in order to earn my trip to the beach, I charged myself with painting my bathroom.
For over a year now, the drywall in the corner has been slowly crumbling for a year. I finally patched it up a few weeks ago but - OF COURSE - I don't have any of the original paint. so even though the bathroom looked FINE, now it needed to be painted. And because it was a CORNER, the ceiling needed to be painted too. And because it is a BATHROOM, I might as well prime with Kilz to prevent mildew, right?
Ugh. Such is the life of a homeowner.
Crack Corner (well, one kind of crack corner!)
Friends for *GASP* 21 years?? I love you, girl!!
