Blogging.... Do it for the Children!
There are many wonderful reasons to blog on Activerain. SEO and Networking are two excellent reasons, but did you know that it could benefit your children too? And Not just by bringing you more business and allowing for financial stability (although that is a really, really nice benefit).
A few weekends ago, my family and I had the pleasure of spending the weekend with fellow AR Member and Loan Officer Nevin Williams. He and his daughter visited the Crystal Coast and we all had a blast. The original idea was to spend some time sailing, but high winds and choppy waters prohibited that idea. Instead, we attended the Pirate Invasion, went on a boat tour around Carrot Island, saw some wild ponies, had a great lunch at the Dock House along the Beaufort Waterfront, Dinner at Molly's in Atlantic Beach, Breakfast at Four Corners Diner, A difficult game of frisbee on the beach (too much wind), Sunset on the Sheraton Pier, four wheeling, bike riding, ditch jumping, and body surfing at the beach. We all had a great time, but I think the kids had the most fun and now.... Tan Man has a new friend. Let's be very, very clear here....she is not his girlfriend (or so he says). We hated to see them leave to head back to Raleigh, but it wasn't long before we got to "Hang" again.
During our Hurricane Evacuation to the Raleigh area, Nevin and his wonderful wife Erika called to check on us. Rather than hang out in a hotel room all weekend, we met them for lunch at the Mongolian Grill and later enjoyed a visit to "Monkey Joes" where the kids went wild and the adults got a break!
We are already planning our next adventure together.... Maybe camping in the mountains or an amusement park! Thank You Activerain!
