Brooklyn was not a light traveler. Since she preferred her baby pool to the big pool, we hauled around her little pool wherever we went. But she was happy, and when Brooklyn's happy....well, you know!
The Johnson Family at Ocean Isle
Thank you, Nanny and Grandpa for a wonderful week!
To end the week, we took Brooklyn to play miniature golf for the first time. She loved it and was quite good when she would walk her ball to the very end of the course and knock it in from 5 inches away. :-)

So, the moral of the story is.....shake things up in the housing market and things will happen.
And now, I am in the "grieving for my old house" stage and thinking about all the things that I will miss....but that's for a future post.

We have had our house on the market for 5 months now. The first 4 months were busy with activity and even two offers, but the last 4 weeks have been dry and lonely. So, this week we took the house off the market and then will re-list it as a brand new listing in August. Well, wouldn't you know it, this week alone our realtor has received two phone calls with people really interested in the house.
Hmmm.....what an interesting market we are in right now.
So....please think great thoughts for us as we continue to try new ways to sell our wonderful little home! :-)

The mama ostrich with her TWENTY ONE babies.
Nanny and Brooklyn in the backseat.
We went to the Greensboro parade with Nanny, Grandpa, Gramma, and Pops.
The afternoon was spent at Allie's Nana's house (and pool!). Thanks, Nana Margaret!
On Saturday, we had a super fun cookout at the Henzler house where all the "Shout sisters" got to play together. Here's Zoe, Brooklyn, "Baby" Allie, and "Big" Allie goofing around at the screen door.
Brooklyn and Zoe were having a blast making silly faces on the couch.
#1: Rental Van (with a DVD player- yay!)
#2: Daddy's Shoulders (and eating Twizzlers for breakfast at Hershey Park)
Thanks to Aunt Patty, Uncle Bill, and Sean for their hospitality while we were visiting...it will probably be a while before we get back up north, but I can't wait for the day when Brooklyn and I can hit the streets of NYC to buy knock-off handbags and see Broadway shows together. :-)
