Over the years, we have found that getting away for vacation is essential. Taking time to breathe away from everything. This was such a special vacation with my entire family, possibly our last for a while. My sister, Joy, and her family will most likely be moving to Ghana, Africa before the next summer. It was bittersweet. Here is a beach-load of pictures with a little recap at the end.
Our time at the Outer Banks was unforgettable. From flying kites on Jockey's Ridge with the sun setting along the sound to digging for shark's teeth at the NC Aquarium, our family vacation was everything we had hoped for. Being there with my parents, two sisters and our families brought back many childhood memories spent along the beaches of Japan. We will never forget the family meals together, eating the fish caught by the guys & Chloe one morning, the several walks along the beach and through the neighborhood, trying out a new frozen yogurt place (the cutest place ever!), date nights for the couples, finishing the 700 piece puzzle, swimming along the sound, family devotions, discovering Coquina Beach with all its shells, eating mexican food out, and the list could go on... Now summer is officially over. Fall is in the air and change is on the horizon.
