Our Beach Week

Now that we are all back and already ready for another vacation, I think it's time I finally posted a few pictures from the beach, don't you think? Above you'll see a comparison of last year versus this year. Big difference, huh?

We didn't have the greatest of weather that week - lots of rain and a couple of pretty chilly days, but we all made the most of it! On Monday, it poured down and was COLD. Everybody on the Outer Banks must have had the same idea as we did...Aquarium. It was packed, but for the money and to have something to do, well, it was good. Seven really seemed to enjoy pressing his face against the glass and watching the fish and turtles. He was even brave enough to put his hands in the Sting Ray tank to try and touch them!

On the days we did get to go down to the ocean, he had a big time playing with Clay and Nate and digging in the sand. His favorite thing to do was to push the dumptruck all over creation..and after two hours each day of beachtime he was ready for a big 3 hour nap! (now, where can I get a beach? Anyone?)

Now we are trying to plan a cruise for January (for our 10th anniversary, can you believe it?) with Seven and Mom and Dad and anyone else who wants to join us. You in? One week, under a grand for 2 people. Let me know, the more the merrier!
