Snapshots From The Outer Banks (Part II)

We’re currently driving home from our trip to the Outer Banks so I thought this was the perfect time to share the rest of the photos and thoughts from our time in North Carolina!

We spent the second half of the week doing a lot of the same things: hanging out at the beach, swimming in the pool, relaxing in the hot tub, going out to eat, and enjoying each other’s company.

We were blessed with beautiful weather and no hurricanes! My brother and his family arrived on our last night, so it was wonderful to have the whole crew together for an evening. My parents were in their glory having all five grandkids under one roof!

Fun things we did while visiting the Outer Banks

Favorite moments

  • Spending uninterrupted time with my niece and nephew all week
  • Our little family date in Duck
  • Not having a schedule or usual duties // sharing housework and childcare
  • My sister surprising me with a bracelet I said I liked while we were shopping
  • Reading in the hot tub
  • Sharing challah, babka, and cookies with my family all week
  • Eating a soft hot pretzel with honey mustard while Sadie slept on me when we were out to eat
  • Seeing the sun rise over the ocean on my last morning
  • Watching my parents moments of joy with their grandkids (and kids 😉)

Well, I think this post is long enough! We’re almost home and hadn’t hit any traffic until we reached Pittsburgh. Classic 😂

So, so thankful to be able to get away and spend time with our family! Now it’s back to our normal routines and snuggle our fur babies!!

Did you go on a vacation this summer?



  1. Glad you are home safe and created memories. I’m sure the fur babies missed you. Vacation is nice, rest the mind, body and soul.

  2. I love all these pictures so much! The family shot of everyone together is gold! All five grandkids together! ❤

    And matching outfits!! You know how much I love those. All these pictures are so great. Looks like such a wonderful time together!

    So sweet that Hannah surprised you with a bracelet you had liked. And I love that everyone had so much quality time together!
