Last week we drove 20 hours to Oak Island, NC to spend a wonderful week with my family. We had such a blast with my parents, my brother and sister and their spouses, and my six wonderful nieces and nephews. I tried to take a lot of pics, but most of them aren't great. Here are a few of my favorites:
The whole crew in front of our house:We are Stone 1. There are also four other houses of my relatives (Stone 2-5) within walking distance of our house.
My sister Cat and her family:
Our immediate family:
My brother John and his family:
My oldest nephew Michael and a jellyfish he caught in his net:
My dad and my niece Lizzie reading together:
My parents and all eight grandchildren:
Feeding the seagulls:
My niece Madeline just loved the seagulls:
We went to Jungle Golf. My nephew was on one hole and hit the ball so hard that it bounced to the next hole and went in. Hole in one!:
N had fun "golfing" too:
The rock band:
These giant shovels were the huge hit of the week.
N LOVED them:
B and J in the ocean:
I love the expression on J's face. He loved boogie boarding or as he called it "surfing."
The crab Michael found and later released:
N flying a kite on the beach:
My boys heading out into the ocean:
My family has been going to this same beach for years (over 30) and I just love it. It feels like my home away from home and I love that my boys love it too. Can't wait to keep going back for years and years to come.
