Arcade Night, The Wright Brother’s National Memorial, and Other Fun

Picking up where I left off in my last post, we are enjoying our time in the Outer Banks! We had another nice weather day on Saturday so my mom, Sadie, and I made it to a new-to-us park while my dad and Jimmy went to day two of the car show.

I definitely had a wicked sunburn from the day before, so I made sure to wear a long sleeve shirt and lots of sunscreen 😂 (more…)

Hello from…

Hello from the Outer Banks of North Carolina!

I’m on vacation with my parents and sister. I just wanted to pop in and share some pictures!

Before I even left for vacation, Jimmy drove out to my house and gave me a care package for the trip (sorta like I did for him when he was working a few hours away for a week). He included all of my favorite things: sun block, peanut butter, snacks, gum, stickers, and Sharpie markers. He’s the sweetest. I’m glad he doesn’t judge me for loving stickers at age 20.

I’ve been enjoying plenty of raw oysters.

My mom loves sipping coffee on the deck of the beach house we’re staying at.

I love the deck because I can hear the ocean while I read my Bible.

Hannah looks older than me. Nothing new about that.

I played skee ball in the local arcade and turned in my tickets for stickers. Best. Prize. Ever.

We’ve been saving money by packing lunches each day. Tuna and turkey sandwiches for the win! Yes, my nickname is Stitch.

My dad is in fishing heaven. I spent about 30 minutes with him in the fishing aisle in Kmart. He was so “in the zone” that he didn’t know I took this picture.

Cookies have been baked. Coffee has been thoroughly enjoyed.

The scenery is absolutely breathtaking. I just gape at everything.

The fish are biting.

Lastly, what kind of journalism student would I be if I didn’t read the local newspaper?

Well, that’s all the pictures I have for now. I can’t wait to take more because I’m going to be going on some fun adventures this week.

Where is your favorite place to vacation?
