That's right folks! I am officially
And I have to say, it is kinda nice. I am no longer in my "20's". Weird. I actually like being 30. Such a nice well rounded number! Anyway, to celebrate my age, we took a family camping trip to Sunset Beach. It was beautiful! Wild flowers were in bloom everywhere. However, it got down to 42 degrees F that night and we weren't really prepared. All four of us ended up on the queen blow up mattress because it was chilly! We were also graced by the presence of a skunk. About 2:00am, we heard this strange bird squaking crazily and flying around our tent. Needless to say, we were all just lying there in the dark with our eyes wide open and frozen! About a minute later, we could hear something walking along the tarp right outside our tent. Oh yeah, and there was that lovely smell of skunk in the air. Luckily, it did not spray anything, but our folding chair did smell a bit like skunk on the way home.
It was a nice little adventure. The kids found lots of shells and sand dollars to bring home.

The weekend after our trip, it got up to 93 degrees F. Man, I wasn't prepared for that. We did yard work all day and we all got a little too much sun. The kids enjoyed themselves in the pool. The water slide came the following week. (Robby really isn't this boney!)

Needless to say, the kids really enjoy it! It barely fits in the yard, but we seem to manage! This is pretty much where you will be able to find my kids all summer long!
