Outer Banks

We had a fantastic time on our trip to the Outer Banks, NC. It was beautiful. and SO fun.

We played on the beach. and we played at the pool.

We played bingo, and had water balloon tosses. Played tennis and road bikes.

We built sand castles. and collected shells.

Well some of us did. Some of us (one) sat on the blanket or chair and didn't touch the sand until less than 12 hours before leaving. That would be Grace. She DID NOT like the sand... or the ocean. Poor girl.

We had a few incidences... a little brush up with a jelly fish, pricks by a cactus (yes, I said cactus) and a very large wave that pummeled one boogie boarder named Braden.

But overall, it was a lot of sun. and a lot of surf.

and it was a great time!

Now, we watch the news and the very beaches we were sitting on a week ago are getting pounded by Hurricane Irene. And we sit at our house today anxiously awaiting the arrival of Ms. Irene here early tomorrow morning.

After weather the storm... school starts. Time flies when you are having fun!
