Brent started taking steps about 3 weeks ago. He went back and forth for a while trying to decide if he preferred walking or crawling more. Well, just a couple days ago he discovered that if he walks, he can carry things as he travels-goodbye crawling! Brent walks all over the place now carrying anything from stuffed animals to buckets of who-knows-what. So everyone has warned me that it is "a whole new world" once they start walking. Well, hello "whole new world" here we are....(now, I just need to buy the poor kid some shoes!)

Brent and I were in Michael's the other day and they had just put their Halloween decorations out on display. In the isle, there was a life-size skeleton that moved and made noises when you touched it. I was curious to see how Brent would react to this since he's never seen anything like it before and I just happened to catch it on camera.
There were moms all around staring at me. They must of thought I was a terrible mom for filming it but I thought it was pretty darn funny. So, this Halloween should be lots of fun!!

Brandon and I stayed at the Grove Park Inn (wow!). That place was absolutely beautiful! It's been a while since I've been to NC mountains and I was just blown away by its beauty. We were wined and dined (minus the wine) and really, really enjoyed this time alone.
The second day we were there we went on an adventure to Mt. Pisgah's National Forest. I absolutely love waterfalls and I was told this was the place to go to see one. They have over 20 breathtaking waterfalls in this area and we were able to see a couple of them. It was so nice to be out in nature and to spend this much needed time with my best friend and husband!

Last year when we went, I was 8 months pregnant with Brent so I was not "allowed" to swim in the ocean. Well, this year, you couldn't pull me out of the ocean. All the boys and I enjoyed getting beat up by the waves and stung by jelly fish as we boogie boarded for hours every day. Brent turned into quite the little beach baby and showed no fear as he played in the sand and the ocean. He absolutely loves playing with his cousins Kara and Deanna and they were such a big help with him.
Since we live the furthest away from Brandon's family, it is really nice to look forward to this vacation every year. It's a great time for Brent to bond with this side of the family and learn new things. This year, Brent learned to spit and give a high-five (thanks, Uncle Chad) We look forward to all the new things Brent will learn from this annual vacation :) There were too many pics to post up here so to the right is the album from the whole week.
