Sunday Snapshots

As you might remember, my folks visited this week.

Saturday

 
They arrived Saturday afternoon and wanted to go out to dinner.

Mom chose Red Robin (Yum!); so we piled into the van and away we went.

Halfway there I realized I was still in my work shirt.

Luckily, Red Robin is attached to the mall, and one of the stores had a sale.

Sunday

 
On the way out the door for Sunday church, Mom realized that Dad and I dressed very similarly:

As we were close to the beach, we visited Fort Macon and Atlantic Beach between the morning and evening services.
 
First up, Fort Macon:
 


 

As I wandered around looking for unique architectural details, I noticed something about the springer.
 


 

Then, it was on to the beach!

 And onto the beach, as it were.

 


 

That evening, we were back at church. What luck it was a fellowship night!
 


 

Monday

 

We went shopping for groceries to make apple pie.

 

 

Dad also cleaned our coffee pots. He did a good job, even if I did have to stop him from trying to take apart the Keurig.

 

Tuesday

 

We visited the Farmer’s Market and Tryon Palace

 

 

 

I made a Venison Roast, which I didn’t take a picture of; however, we did have apple pie and vanilla ice cream for desert:

Wednesday

 

Mom and Dad left Wednesday morning, but not before we ate breakfast at Baker’s Kitchen

Thursday – Saturday

 
Soon after they left, I developed all the symptoms of a simply wonderful summer cold.

So, I used the time to catch up on my TBR:

Instagram – where I show you my Life in Motion and share quotes and such. The widget only shows my last three photographs – don’t you want to see them all?

Photo Challenge: On The Way

This week’s Daily Post Photo Challenge is “On The Way“.

With six hours (local time) left until Thursday turns to Friday, I thought I’d share some pictures with you.

The first two were taken at Fort Macon, North Carolina.

These next two were taken in downtown New Bern, North Carolina.
