Snapshots From the Outer Banks Part II

As promised, I have a few more pictures and details from our trip to the Outer Banks earlier this month!

We stayed from a Wednesday to a Monday and were able to squeeze in a lot of fun. My dad and Jimmy went fishing off of the Avalon Fishing Pier and caught ten skate, we all went shopping (Sadie made out really well and got spoiled with a stuffed animal from her Pap Pap and lots of clothes from Grandma!), visited Jeanette’s Pier, Jimmy got a haircut, and I got a pedicure! It was downright luxurious 🙂

We went out to eat for dinner each night, which was such a treat. Sadie was just starting solids, so she enjoyed lots of shrimp, bread, and veggies. My mom also fed her gourmet breakfasts (pancakes, eggs, fruit, etc.!) each morning, which was adorable. We also visited our home away from home church, Son Rise Church of Christ, on Palm Sunday and it was great!

It was truly such a wonderful, relaxing, and fun trip. We felt so incredibly blessed to spend time as a family with my parents and can’t wait to do it all again in the future!

Snapshots From The Outer Banks

Jimmy, Sadie, my mom, dad, and I (plus Mavis and my parents pup, Brandy) all took a road trip to the Outer Banks, NC in mid-April and it was lovely!

My parents purchased a beach house almost a year ago and Jimmy and I were so excited to finally stay in it!

The 8.5 hour drive wasn’t nearly as tough as I expected it to be with a six-month-old thanks to toys, books, and mom singing plenty of made up songs to Sadie 😉

Sadie enjoyed looking at the ocean but wasn’t a fan of having her toes dipped in the water since it was so cold. Mavis was totally afraid of the waves but enjoyed walking on the sand!

We had great weather–highs in the 70s, with sunshine–most days, and enjoyed our time together. Jimmy and I were able to go on two dates (bowling and dinner out!) and so appreciated my parents watching Sadie for us!

How about some pictures?!

I’m realizing this post is getting long and is picture heavy, so part II will be soon to follow with more details!
