This is just a little bit of what our beach house
looked like.

Fun at Outer Banks!!

I haven't written much about what exciting things we did before little miss Zoe was born, so I thought that I would periodically post some pictures of trips and other things we have done, etc.

Last September we (me, Mike, and my parents) rented a beach house... RIGHT ON THE BEACH! It was incredible! Going to sleep and waking up every morning to the sound of waves crashing on the sound. It was AWESOME! While I wouldn't necessarily want to live on the beach, I loved visiting, and we decided that we would likely do it once a year, but at different beaches. Our beach house was at the Outer Banks (OBX) in North Carolina, which is about 4 hours from Raleigh. Not something I am used to, since we used to live in Southern California only about 30 or so minutes from the beach. But, now it's a treat to go.

We had a lot of fun trekking around seeing all the sights, which included seeing 4 beautiful lighthouses!! (there are only 3 posted) I love photographing lighthouses, but I just posted a couple of the pictures that I actually took.

Since North Carolina is "First in Flight", we went to the wright brother's museum, which was OK, except I was pregnant, and my ankles were the size of tree trunks! ha ha! We also went geocaching, walked on the beach, collect a massive amount of shells, relaxed, read books, visited Ocracoke Island, saw the most amazing sandbar that went miles into the ocean (There were several cars parked on it because apparently it was a great fishing spot), my mom and I had some mother daughter time as well, which was nice. All in all, we had a very memorable, and fantastic experience!

I'm telling you, if you don't visit North Carolina, you're missing out! But, you have to be willing to get out and see the sights! Want to visit? Come on!! :)
