Outer Banks



What a wonderful week in the Outer Banks! Our weather was FAB.U.LOUS!! Sunny and 85 degrees, with just 15 minutes of rain Friday morning...that quickly turned back to sunshine. We spent the week migrating between the beach, the pool, the hottub and the theater room stocked with over 400 dvds!!! With breif stopovers in the kitchen for snacks and meals. I was happy to keep up on my running and a bit of ab work with my niece.......it helped to balance out the happy hours and candy on the beach! It was sooooo nice to kick back and relax...sprinkled with long walks on the beach and dolphin watching.



One evening we went up to the dunes in Kill Devil Hills. We got there just in time for sunset. What a great night...we climbed and ran down the dunes for a while and just stood in awe at the views......you could see the ocean on one side and the bay on the other. Of course we had to stop in a few "knick knack" shops...as Cubby calls the souvenir shops. He's quite the shopper!!!! We picked out a few treasures to take home.



I got myself and two of my sister in laws Outer Banks hats....they picked what color they wanted and left the pink one for me....which is the one I secretly wanted. It matched the chair I sat in all week and one of the suits I brought with me :) And check out my new ankle bracelet....of course I brought leather cord to dangle stuff from!! We collected shells during the day and made jewelry at night!!!!




Here are my in laws with 14 of their grandchildren ranging in age from 22 to 2 years. They were sooooo happy to have us all together for the week. Wonderful memories to last a lifetime!!!
