Part two of the long, long update!

Fast forward and we left Korky’s Campground and headed to the coast of NC.  We were going to spend two weeks at Cedar Point Campground.  I needed to help my parents with some paperwork and we were going to celebrate an early Christmas with my extended family one weekend.  We had also planned to have a surprise birthday party for my Mom that same weekend.  And…my Mom thought it would be a good idea to hold a surprise baby shower for Brandon and Amanda!  Talk about a busy weekend!
They were so surprised!

We headed south to Cedar Key and are now settled in for our shortest winter here yet!  Our plans are to leave here in early March and head to NC for the birth of Bennett!!  Yay!!
