Galveston's Last Blog Entry

Well, the packers are coming tomorrow, so I thought I would get one last post from here. My parents came down tonight to help while the packers are here. We went to Yaga's one last time and had dinner with our good friend Tara. FBC Galveston had a praise and worship night at the Checkerboard, so we got to say goodbye to our FBC friends. The movers load up on Friday and Saturday. We will drive out on Sun. Here we come NC!!

Here are the Carnes. Jillian (applying for Med School next year!!), Meg, Me, Lisa, Rusty and Lori.

CCCC Small Group

Our CCCC Small Group gave us a fare-well party tonight. Today was our last Sunday at CCCC. So sad to leave such great relationships here in Galveston, but it has been a great experience living life with these guys over the last three years. We have made life-long friends and grown tremendously throuth these relationships.

Jason and Melissa Harper

My cousin Jason got married this past Saturday and came to Galveston for their Honeymoon. We felt so privileged that they wanted to hang with us old married folks for the day!! Congrats Jason and Melissa!!
Katelin trying out her photography skills...not bad for a 3 year-old!!

New House

Here are some pics of where we will be living in Durham. We will be about 5 minutes from Duke and 40 minutes from my work. It has 5 bedrooms, an office, and a huge play plenty of room for you to visit!!


The other day, Dina was talking about her wig hair, so she brought a wig for Katelin to play with. She thought it was so fun, but couldn't figure out why the dummy didn't have eyes.

Potter visit

This past weekend, the Potter family came to visit. Steven, Brittany, Preston, and baby#2(!!) live in Arlington where Brittany is a Family Medicine resident and Steven works as an engineer for a flight simulation company. We have known the Potters since we lived in Galveston the first time. When we moved back, we jumped into their small group through Clear Creek Community Church. We don't get to see them too often, but when we do, it is just like old times and we pick up life just where we left off.

While in Galveston, we had a beautiful day for the beach. Galveston brought tons of new sand in for the beach after Ike and it was so soft and warm to the toes!! The kids had a blast. We then went to the Strand to eat at Yagas. Galveston had a "re-birth" party on the strand to celebrate Galveston coming back after the storm. We had a great time walking around down town seeing what has re-opened. We couldn't have asked for a better weekend!!

OK's time for you to update your blog now...
Welcome to our new blog! We thought this would be a fun way to share our pictures and lives with family and friends. Thanks for visiting. Enjoy!
Katelin celebrated her first birthday at her grandparents' house in Round Rock. We grilled hamburgers and had cake and homemade ice cream.

Katelin's one! (April 2007)
We went to the Grand Canyon for our vacation this year. We stayed in Sedona, Arizona. The mule ride was great fun! We suggest everyone seeing the Grand Canyon at least once in a lifetime.
