Where We've Been: Beach Week

My (Emily) family goes to the same beach house at the same beach every single summer.  It is wonderful and this year was no exception!  We were only sad that my sister, brother, and new sister-in-law couldn't join us. 
At the beginning of August we had a very fun beach week at the Outer Banks!  
Here are the highlights:  
*spending time with my parents and brother
*watching Carly chase the crabs!  Don't worry, we didn't let her get too close.  
*eating some delicious shrimp 
*boogie boarding in the waves!  
*seeing dolphins from the shore every single day 
*reading and Olympics watching 
*driving my brother's Jeep Wrangler out onto the beach - you have to have 4 wheel drive to get to some of the northern most towns.  
*ice cream and lots of food!  


  1. Looks and sounds so fun!! You really can't go wrong when you go to the beach. :)

  2. That sounds like an excellent family tradition to have! It sounds like you enjoyed all the best things about vacation... family, food, and relaxation!!! :)

  3. That looks like soooooooooooo much fun! I haven't been to the beach in over a year :(. I am so glad I got to talk to you my Emily. I love you and miss you!
