actually staying home...

we're at home for the first time in a few weekends, and i'm loving it. as much as i am a traveler, sometimes you just need a few nights at home to rest, take care of the mundane stuff, and relax with my husband and the animals.

pepper cooperated with me earlier in the week, and i was able to get some of the great macro shots. i love the texture on her nose, her glossy brown eyes, and the cute folds of her ear.

justin's been at home all week for "vacation" and has been extremely productive around the house. he's also been enjoying some quality time with the animals, and those moments where pepper and milo will actually come together for a common interest (in this case, pretzels.)
and then they do their own part of helping clean the house. like yesterday, when pepper assisted with wiping down the front door... last night, we continued with the summertime vacation theme and headed out for a kinston indians game. it'd been a year since i had gone to a game, and justin had actually never been to one of their games. there were plans for a group going from church, but the actual details came together at the last minute and we knew we wanted to go, so we went ahead and made plans to go with our buddies johnnie and heather (and johnnie's connections got us free tickets!) we had a great time hanging out with them and watching an exciting game--the indians won!

afterwards, they had fireworks and i have to admit--they were awesome! better than the ones we saw for the 4th of july, honestly. it was a long fireworks show with lots of variety, and the crowd loved it!we ended the night with a quick trip to mcdonald's to grab a snack and let the boys reminisce. justin and johnnie go way back, and it was fun to hear them talk about memories of the past few years and some of the crazy stuff they and their friends did way back when during the college years.

and now it's a lazy saturday. and i'm loving every minute of it.

how about you?
