Vacation part 1, and new job

I think I am finally caught up on some laundry, and cleaning. Big News around here. Rob started a new job this week. I have been wanting to post the news but everything has been so crazy and then there were all the approvals before I wanted to mention it. He has been very dedicated to his last job and really had no intentions of leaving. In the last couple years he felt more and more that that next promotion he has been working for may not be what is best for our family. Although the money would be a great benefit the time and stress may not be. One day he got a call and he just listened to what they said and it sounded to good to be true. Several interviews later he had to make the tough decision to resign choosing what was best for our family. It so happens that he said no to something else to say yes to something better. I truly feel that God is honoring Rob with this by him following His will instead of his own. One of my favorite verses is "Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart." Rob is a hard worker and wants to provide for our family. He first wants to honor God and that is a hard position to be in at times. You want to provide but at the same time still know what matters most in life. He did not want to miss the kid's games and not see us as much just to make a lot more money. This job seems to be the best of both worlds so it was very hard to say no. One of my friends said. God brought this to you and you have been faithful so why would you say no to a blessing he is putting in front of you. It is sometimes hard to accept a blessing and we feel humbled. Anyway it is a totally different industry, natural gas. Which is a green resource with great future in a America. So our new adventure begins!

So this week he has been in Texas, it is all new but exciting.

The week before his new job started we already had our vacation planned to Myrtle Beach. It was a great relaxing time and it gave us a lot of time to talk about our future. We stopped in Mt. Airy, North Carolina. Rob loves Andy Griffith so we stopped at the museum for him. I am glad my husband is simple when it comes to wants this made his day.

My movie star

The kids loved the beach!! We saw lots of wildlife. My boys love to fish and pretend to hunt so catching sea creatures was a favorite pastime.

They call these things crabs for a reason.

Some guy caught a sting ray and he told the boys to pretend they caught it, cute.

Jaden floating. This is the life!! I loved the beach area where we stayed. In North Myrtle Beach the beach seems much wider and when the tide goes out it leaves pools everywhere so that little kids can play in them and they are not to deep. Plus all the fish and hermit crabs get trapped so the kids have fun catching them.

Rob taking the kids out. They all loved the water, especially Jaden. He had a boogie board and went out past waist deep he kept ridding the waves over and over again.

I plan on posting more tomorrow or later today. Lots of fun and good times but so nice to be home. We have had to detox the kids from fun 24/7 so back to reality (:
