OBX

Our Dental School graduation present to ourselves was a week long vacation to the Outer Banks in North Carolina. It is one of our favorite places. This time we brought along Grandma and Grandpa California. We stayed at a friends beach house in Kill Devil Hills.
 
We spent everyday at the beach. The kids enjoyed learning to boogie board and digging for little crabs. Even Grandma and Grandpa got in on the action.

Audrey was afraid of the water, but dragged her boogie board around anyway.

When we weren't at the beach we were exploring the island.

Umm..not really sure
We also went to the Wright Brother's Monument.  Where the first flight took place.
 

One of our favorite places to go is Jockey Ridge Parks where there are enormous sand dunes.

Wither you are flying kites or jumping off sand dunes Jockey Ridge Parks is tons of fun.


We are so grateful we got to share one of our favorite spots on the East Coast with Grandma and Grandpa California.  We had so much fun swimming, sunbathing, kite flying, exploring, and playing together.  All good things must come to an end so after a week of playing we said goodbye and headed back to Maryland to prepare for our next big adventure.  Moving to Alaska!
