What we've been up to

This past weekend we finally got to meet our new nephew Clayton Christopher Herring and niece Emme Grace Englund

We went to Cincinnati for the weekend just to visit with family and get our pictures taken by Brenda.

Kaley and Camen

At the famous IKEA store - Caleb with the fruits of the spirit hat (inside joke) just for you Nancy :)

On Sunday, Kendall & I went with Aaron & Brenda to Springdale for Emme's baby dedication, then we went to Chris & Nancy's for a delicious meal.

Lauren with Clayton

Craig & Tonya also ate with us

In October we went to hear Carrie Underwood, one of my favorite country singers.

Kendall's birthday cake- a Cold Stone Creamery ice cream cake- very yummy!

With Josh & Charity's wedding fast approaching it was time for those bridal showers.

This was the small shower held at my house.

McCain/Palin Rally

Thursday I was able to go see Sarah Palin speak at Elon University. Thanks Josh for getting me a ticket. :) I went with Josh, Charity, Joanna, Aaron, & Bro. & Sis. Wetherald (Kendall had to work & Gretchen had school).

Can you read his button?

Waiting in the hot sun! I think it was 89 degrees. Did not feel like October.

yeah, we went a little overboard with the buttons, stickers, and towels. :)

Senator Elizabeth Dole

Finally, Gov. Palin arrives

Listening to Hank Williams Jr. sing. I did not get any good pictures of him.

Senator Richard Burr

As Charity said, I would love to have her job (the woman in blue).

Gotta love the Secret Service. :)

Topsail Island

A couple of weeks ago we joined Chris, Nancy, and the kids for a few days on their vacation at Topsail Island, NC. We had a blast with them and made lots of memories. This is the house Chris rented which was only a short walk from the beach. This is the view from the back of the house.

I love watching and listening to the waves. I could adapt to being a "beach bum" very quickly.

I had to include this picture. One of the many times the waves got the best of Chris and dumped him into the sand. :)Getting ready to eat a yummy dinner prepared by Nancy.
Picture time

Thanks Chris & Nancy for inviting us - we had a wonderful time!

Summer trip to Missouri

Just a few photos from our trip to Missouri (Kendall's home state) a couple of weeks ago. We had a really fun time going to the Missouri State Fair, fishing, and just being with family. We're looking forward to Christmas when we will head out there again. We also finally got to meet for the first time this little guy - our nephew Karson. He is such a happy baby. Smiles for everyone.
