A little break...

Did ya miss me? It's been a little quiet around staciewood.com as of late and I do apologize. It has not been for lack of content, but rather the opposite extreme of too much going on to keep up with the blog. So get ready, because you are about to be bombarded with pictures and updates and thoughts.

We just got back last night from a ten day trip to South Carolina where we celebrated my parents 40th wedding anniversary. That, I do believe, is the longest vacation Mr. Andy Wood has taken since our honeymoon 8 years ago. It was absolutely wonderful.

My brother and his wife, sister & her family, parents, and the Wood clan all rented a beach house for the week.

Here's my typical morning schedule:

6:30 AM: Wake up call courtesy of 5 very excited cousins all ages 5 and under
7:00-8:00: Go for a run on the beach with my sister and sister-in-love
8:00-9:00: Eat breakfast, get the kids ready for the beach
9:00-12:00: Beach baby!
12:00: Lunch and then naps

The afternoons were filled with more beach or pool, a walk to the pier, painting sea shells, or movies. Each family took a turn cooking dinner so we ate like kings every night and I've got about 4.5 extra pounds to show for it!

We killed some desserts:
  • Peach cobbler with ice cream
  • 2 (TWO) nights of homemade peach ice cream
  • 3 dozen chocolate chip cookies
  • 2 pound cakes
  • 1 chocolate bundt cake 
  • smores
  • Chocolate Passion Bowl
  • 2 dozen Krispy Kreme donuts
  • 1 loaf of cranberry bread
If you count, you'll notice that that averages out to be more than one dessert per day. But that's what vacation is for, right?!

Ok, enough commentary for today. It's time for a few top pics.
