This past weekend we went to the eastern shore! As usual, we had a relaxing time, great weather, and great food! Greg’s dad is such an awesome cook — his family always jokes that he needs his own TV show. I also had lunch at my favorite, Georgia House (my third time there) — and for the third time, had the club on wheatberry bread with sweet potato fries and some delicious pretzel salad. I have absolutely no desire to try anything new even though I know it’s all good. We also hit a few yard sales where I picked up two vases for $1.00, and a couple antique shops where I got a darling vintage white dress with blue embroidery (in perfect condition) for my darling Dhara, a few wooden spools for my yarn, and some vintage woven dish towels because I just have this thing for vintage woven dish towels — a small collection of mine. : )
And as always, we hit the beach! Dhara wore a two-piece that her Aunt Lori got her. She had an excellent time at the beach. Our baby loved to feel the breeze and feel the sand between her fingers. She would quietly pick up a handful of sand in her small chub hand, and softly let is slide through her fingers — so cute.
I just love this photo of Greg and Dhara — so peaceful and content watching the waves get closer and closer.
Dhara loves to touch Aunt Beth’s dog, Missy.
An old chapel built in the late 1800’s. Greg’s mom wanted to purchase this chapel to start a quilt shop! Dhara says, “There’s still time Grandma!”
Dhara visited Grandma’s school, saw her beautifully plush office, and met her co-workers. She also met Aunt Beth’s co-workers too.
This cloth doll belonged to Greg’s mom’s great, great grandmother, Dr. Martha. Which means, it belonged to Dhara’s great, great, great, great grandmother! Wow! It’s probably dated back to the Civil War era. The history behind Dr. Martha is so interesting. A while back, Greg’s mom showed me an article written about her. She was a medical doctor who was very familiar with holistic medicines. She rode horseback to her patients’ homes to treat them. My most favorite part of the article is the part about her being a radical Baptist woman who cried out to God when she couldn’t help a patient. What an amazing heritage! I pray that Dr. Martha’s prayers be imparted to little Dhara — so that she too can be a radical woman of prayer!

Susan, really nice pictures! I’m looking forward to meeting Dhara some time this summer. And what a neat story about the doll. So fun to have antique things right in the family.
I don’t remember if you’ve already told me but which sling are you using?
And did you actually transport the high chair to the beach?
faith, yes, the sling is made by puj baby. it’s just a simple cotton cloth sewed in sling fashion. no padding, buckles or anything. they make this sling, a signature infant tub which I love, but my baby prolly woulda been to big as an infant to use, and shoes. here’s the link for the sling and a demo video:
the sling is good for when your baby is able to hold his head up on his own.
and, yeah we took the high chair to the beach! 🙂 she loves being in it, plus it’s not hard to transport, so we decided to bring it.
i enjoyed this post 🙂
and loved the last photos of Dhara enjoying her sweet potatoes!
thanks mazhalai! dhara loves her sweet potatoes! p.s., I will email you about which cities we will be visiting when we come to Texas next month.
Great pictures Susan! I really like these a lot.
