The trip with my parents started off rocky and ended quickly. In between that was fabulous. We went from South Carolina, through the outerbanks and then on up to Maine from New Jersey. It was a two week trip. It took us a few days to really get started because my parents had a few things to do in South Carolina but once we got to the Outer Banks we were on a roll.
Before we headed to the islands we just hung out. It was fun.
The Outer Banks of North Carolina are so refreshing and relaxing. My children ran the beaches in their skivvies; we showered in ice cold, outdoor showers; we spent hours digging for shells. Oh and the views! The views and the air were just... inspiring, to say the least.
Wowza! We had sand in the RV for a good week straight. How do beach people deal?
Hatteras Island is where we spent most of our time on the islands. My Mom and I went to the top of Cape Hatteras Lighthouse. Ronnie and Abby spent hours at the beach and came back pooped. The sunset was so peaceful with the sound of the waves rolling in.
I didn't have a suit. My mom thought it was funny so she took a picture.
Impromptu photo shoot at a roadside park in Maine, I think, produced this picture of Ronnie. Very nice posing:)
You can do so much with seashells. These massivos were fun for stacking.
My Sister-In-Law's wedding was really fun. Set in Lodi with kind, fun, lovely country folk. hehe. It was super cute. Kalle, my SIL, was a lovely bride. She was very calm and once the tiara from hell came off her head she was able to enjoy the party even more. Here are a few of my favorite shots:
Hello... Bridal Magazine eat your heart out ...
This was super cute! All the kids stopped playing to watch the father-daughter dance.
Wow! It was really hard to choose my favorites.
