I finally have a chance to sit down and write a little post for you all.
It's been two week since we have returned from vacation, and we've been busy catching up. The garden and berries are producing like crazy, so I have been busy processing squash, beans, cukes and making batches of jam. It's always satisfying to put up your own foods, but I am so tired from standing in the kitchen all day.
I dream of the beach, and how simple things were when we were on vacation, but it is good to be back home, even if it is a ton of work!
Here's a few highlights from our vacation pictures.
|Storm to the north the first night at our house on the OBX|
|Avon Pier - always beautiful|
|Entrance to the beach we took each day. We were only 4 houses away, then up and over the dune to the beach.|
|Scott, Steph & Allie|
|Our little princess|
|Grandpa and Allie|
|Sunsets on the OBX|
|Chris & Scott on the Ferry to Okracoke Island|
|A beach fire at night...how utterly relaxing.....|
|Little Elena was as good as gold|
|Allie in her 'pool' on the beach. She LOVED it.|
|We always enjoyed watching all the crabs that came out at night.|
|A visit to Kitty Hawk|
|To say it was hot and humid was an understatement!|
|Bodie Island lighthouse.|
|Allie hamming it up for the camera.|
|Sadly, the last sunset at our place before heading home.|
|A storm as we approached Fredericksburg, VA. We stayed nearby and visited the battlefield too.|
|Our lunch stop before the final push home.|
I hope you have a wonderful week everyone!
