This past weekend was very eventful to say the least. Friday night was great, both girls participated in the Graduation Ceremony for the newest Swansboro Young Marines. Julia was the narrator, and Michelle  was able to sing the National Anthem! Make sure you check it out, she was awesome. I am so proud of both my girls, they are both growing up so fast. It’s amazing to me that it still feels like yesterday when they were reaching up for me to pick them up. Now I’m looking up to both of them, given the fact that they are both taller than me. I sometimes wish that everything can just slow down so I can catch up. I’m going to wake up and they both will be off to college and well, who knows what I’ll be doing. It’s scary if you really sit back and think about it.

Friday night also was great because I met up with some good friends and some great music for a pre St. Patricks Day Bash. Even though it was freezing outside the atmosphere was nice and everyone seemed to have a good time. I don’t get out much to that side of town, it was a good change of scenery. I hope to do it more often. DSC_2439 Kites
Friday came and Saturday morning came way to soon. Me and the girls got up around 7a.m and headed out to pick up some of their friends. We made our way to Greenville for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation Walk for a Cure. This year the walk took place at the Greenville Convention Center. It was a lot of fun and the weather cooperated for the most part. It was a very long day and we finally made it back at about 430.FxCam_1363447849416 FxCam_1363447138832 FxCam_1363444053251 DSC_2454

We went home and Michelle turned around and got ready for a birthday party that she was invited to. So make a long story short, me and Julia were at the Pub when I got the phone call.

So me and Julia got up and left. I didn’t even pay my bill, well until Sunday. We got there and needless to say it was pretty bad and we took her to the ER. We waited for about an hour in the waiting room. Finally we got into the ER and she was seen, then taken to get a cat scan which came up normal. She might have an orbital fracture but it has to heal on its own. We ended up spending about 3 hours in the ER and then finally headed home.

She is doing much better now and is scheduled to have a follow-up appointment tomorrow. She is back to her old self, and ready to get back to playing soccer next weekend. Last weekend was crazy, and I’m really hoping this weekend is more low-key. So here is to a low-key weekend, and no ER visits!!!  🙂
