Vacation Part 2: OBX

The second half of our trip took us down to Hatteras Island in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. We LOVE the Outer Banks. David has been vacationing there for more than two decades with his family. We took Molly down for her first trip to OBX when she was only 3 weeks old. This year was Harper's first trip. We can't wait for many more years of OBX fun with our girls.
OBX fans for life.
Harper enjoys an upclose look at the waves during her first trip to OBX.

The girls loved digging in the sand and building sandcastles with Daddy.

Vacation Part 1: Norfolk

Here are a few pictures from our recent trip to the beach. We spent ten days in all on the road. Our first stop was Norfolk, Virginia, where Aunt Marcia's in-laws graciously let us stay in their house just a block from the beach. The girls loved it! I have decided I have amphibians for children -- both girls love the water as much as the land. We were hard-pressed to get them off of the beach or out of the pool!
Harper's first trip to the beach -- or bay -- in this instance. She loved every part of the experience! She didn't even seem too phased when she put sand in her mouth although she decided it wasn't a very tasty treat.
Molly, our original amphibian, was ecstatic to be on the beach and in the water!
We took an afternoon trip to the Virginia Beach aquarium where Molly and Daddy got an upclose look at a komodo dragon.
My favorite picture -- Molly in awe of the aquarium's tropical fish tunnel.

Summer Fun

We just got back from a quick weekend trip to Greenwich, Connecticut. We had a great time with family and friends. And we especially enjoyed the cooler weather!
