weekly sparks

Highlights from our week:

lori walking

Enjoyed as many walks as we could outside in between the rain storms.

walk outside

Love watching storms rollin’ in, do you?

We remember growing up and watching storms come in over the gulf. Something about the sky and the water changing…pretty cool.

This week we didn’t film any videos. We filmed them all last week to get ahead as we knew this past week was going to be crazy. And it was! In a good way as mom is in town and Lori’s house remodeling is just about done!!

pizza peel restaurant in charlotte

We tried out a few new restaurants while mom was in town!

First one was a local pizza place up the street called pizza peel. AMAZING!!! Loved the atmosphere.

They happen to have live music that night!

They offered GLUTEN-FREE pizza crust. OH YES!!

We ate way too much…left the plates clean. So worth it. Baby M liked her pizza.


Jax joined us for a few meals out.

It was Gary’s birthday so we celebrated all weekend!

grilled dinner

After eating out all week, last night we grilled up some fish and veggies! Nothing beats home cooked meals.

And the highlight of mom’s visit was getting more things for the nursery. We did LOTS of shopping. We went a little overboard on baby clothes…they are just so cute!!

Aww! Looks like an awesome trip! That walking path looks nice and I LOVE watching storms roll in too. It must be from the “calm before the storm”. It just seems so peaceful before the rain and thunder roll through. That could be a good analogy for a lot in life though 😀

Thanks for sharing the links too…I always find something interesting from your weekly sparks posts.
