Voting. . .and more from OBX


Steve and I ventured out around 9 this morning and voted. We walked straight in and straight out. Well, we did vote before we walked out. The funny thing was that the machine that counted your vote--it was broken. Um, but they assured us that our vote would be counted. They just had us put our votes in a box underneath the actual vote-counting machine thingy. We were recounting the story to a friend and he asked us if the box that they had us put our votes in resembled a garbage can. I am still laughing out loud!!! Then we proceeded to Starbucks for our free coffee. {Well, Steve enjoyed his free coffee, I was the expensive one and bought my chai.} But did you notice the Christmas cups????? I was so happy! I just think they are so beautiful!

We did a lot of reading and resting. . .

Jordan talking to baby Elyse:)

the thinkers:)

I was so excited to see porpoises--we only saw them twice the whole summer at home.

I asked Jordan for a glass of water and this is what I received. It reminded me of when my mom would ask my brothers to get breakfast for me (they are 11 and 12 years my senior) and they would put 1 cheerio in my bowl. Boo on them!


I was so excited to go shell hunting!

It was a great weekend. And it was a wonderful privilege to vote today. I thank God that he holds our future in the palm of His hand.

  10. No starbucks for me. I'm not really a coffee drinker. I went in hopeing to be able to "move" the money to a hot chocolate, but no such luck! Also found out that I missed out on a free Chick-fil-A sandwich.(My favorites.) Unfortunately Roderick has the car.. There sure was a lot of free items today!
