Okay, so it's been a really long time...the boys are practically in college. Alright, it hasn't been that long, but they have grown a bunch! I left off just 2 weeks before vacation, so I'll start there. My parents invited us to stay with them at the Wyndham Cottages in North Myrtle. We shared the cute little cottage with my parents BFFs Jim and Diana and my mom's sister, Aunt Kathy. It was a fun week filled with beach and pool outings, dinners out, a date night for me and Zac and me holding my breath each night hoping someone's laughter or jokes didn't wake up one of the kids. I think that's just a mother's worry, because the kids never woke up to noises and everyone had a great time! We also spent that week spending quality time with Zac's parents, grandpa and his sister and her hubby and two kids, Tadan and AJ. It's fun watching the kids play together now that Luke is a bit older and AJ was just so sweet to little Z. I remember when AJ was just a little tyke and now she's so tall and beautiful. Watch out South Carolina!

Last night we carved a pumpkin with daddy in lead. It was a lot of fun for both boys...Luke got to hold the knife KNIFE once or twice and ZZ (did I mention we sometimes call our Zealand Z.Z., thanks to Luke) got to play with some of the pumpkin insides. Then right before bed we went outside and lit up our jack-o-lantern and both of them were so excited!
Now we have Halloween to look forward to (I'll reveal their costumes on a post-Halloween posting) and Luke's 2nd birthday the following Sunday!
