Going to the Carolina Renaissance Festival became an annual trip for us, and it was one of my favorite things to do while we lived in the Carolinas. It was always a fun photo opportunity, and despite it being a bit corny, it was fun to be surrounded by the sights of colorful costumes and… Read More 2005: Carolina Renaissance Festival
We don’t have many photos from this daytrip, and I think it is because we only brought the Canon, and shared, rather than each of us having our own camera, as we usually did. The photos really aren’t fantastic, but I want to include them in our story for a few reasons. For one, I… Read More 2005: Crowder’s Mountain State Park

I just got home from a week away, and Peanut informed me that she not only A.) didn’t miss me, but B.) didn’t remember me when I picked her up at daycare. She’s trolling me, right? I also left a baby a week ago to go on this trip, and came home to a toddler.… Read More Missed my birds.
