Enjoying the Weather

I took the first few days of this week off because Tricia and Gwyneth are going to be gone from today until early next week (meaning, I'll be a work-o-holic until then, getting ready for The CALL). We took advantage of the spring-like weather to take a stroll through one of Tricia's favorite OBX spots...can you guess where we are?

Pretty sure I know where that is, as it is some of my stomping grounds. Did you by chance see a sailing ship? :) Side note: I was early elementary age when that ship was being built...and I was at the commissioning ceremony. I like that place, too!

LOVE the carseat... i am sure its a girly thing but i always wished that i could have had a pink carseat for my girls but we didn't know what we were having till after we got the carseat.. its very stylish though!
i wish it was warm enough to walk around outside here today.. but alas at -30 celsius.. it is a bit cold!

I am NOT going to show those pics to my husband! He would be so very envious of the guys out on their sailboat IN THE WATER this time of year, in the background of the one that looks like the girls on a boardwalk! Our boat will be on Lake Michigan this summer again....but for now, it is still out of the water, on it's cradle, ccovered with tarps until probably sometime in mid-late April :( But we are being teased with some wonderful 60 degree weather this week!

Love the berry throwing pic!

Tricia looks beautiful, healthy, and happy! :)

I agree, Tricia is beautiful.

And, I love strolls on the Pier, although I'm not much a beach gal (and rarely do you find a pier - one that is substantial enough for a stroll - without an ocean). I prefer the lake...no sharks.

Your daughter is so full of expressions. WOW! I cannot wait until we have some spring like weather. The Northwest just got snow!

Rode ferry over to Ocracoke?

My2Girls said...

Manteo?

I have never been to the OBX, so I have no idea.... but Tricia looks so vital and wonderful in these photos, compared to this time last year, that it brought a tear to my eye. Congratulations on having these amazing times!!

Downtown Manteo. I remeber when Shallobags use to be open along with Diamonds and Dunes.

Your girls are looking so good. Getting out in the fresh air seems be doing everyone good! Beautiful pictures!

Paige said...

What a lovely day. Wish I was there! I love the ocean too. Beautiful pictures. Love the berry (or are those flowers?) shot!! What a happy-go-lucky day.

Nate, you don't know me but I've been following your blog for over a year. I know the amount of readers you have and what prayer warriors they can be so I'm asking a HUGE favor. I am a Peds Nurse at UVa Children's Hospital and I have a CF patient who is very special to me. She is 16 and got very sick last night. Her Mom gave me permission to tell anyone and everyone about her if they would just pray and I know it's a big favor to ask but would you please ask your readers to pray for Holly? If you need someone to vouch for me, ask Patience Leino. She and I are friends from college. Anyways, I appreciate it! God bless you. :o)

What gorgeous shots! Tricia looks so wonderful since finishing chemo. Hope she feels better since finishing, too!

Denise said...

Great weather wherever you were lucky enough to be out for a walk.

Quick question...do you know what will happen to your counter when it reaches the one billion mark? I've never seen one get as high as yours.
