SIX years

What a blessing to be married to this guy for SIX years.
Six years ago today we said I DO.

Our sweet friends, Chris & LeAnn, agreed to take our girls last night so Jake & I could enjoy some time alone.  It was a wonderful 20 hour date!
We did dinner at The Oceanic.

We also enjoyed coffee in downtown Wilmington at Port City Java

This morning we had breakfast at Salt Works, before we picked up the girls.

We girls went & got haircuts this morning.  
This was Ella's first haircut & Lily's first haircut at a salon.  
I cut Lily's hair here & here.

Lily went first.

 AFTER-ta da!
Lily said "I look like a new girl!"

Ella was next. A few days ago I told both girls we were all going to get haircuts on Friday.  Ella said, "cry." Jake & I assured her that the haircut wouldn't hurt.

Ella did a great job keeping her chin down.

AFTER-ta da!

family comes to NC

We had some more family come to visit us.  Jake's sister Jen, and her family did a road trip to NC.  They had never been down to see us.  Anna, Jake's younger sister, decided to join the road trip.  We had so much fun having them all here.  Here's some of the fun we had:

Hanging out at home, waiting for the rain to stop & the sun to shine.

 Once the sun came out & the rain stopped, we headed to WB with our picnic lunch.

 Playing games.

The girls got their nails painted MULTIPLE times.

Painting the seashells we found at the beach.

Waiting oh so patiently for the hot & fresh Britt's donuts.

Cousin donut distribution

This girl LOVES donuts; both our girls do.
