|We were missing my husband's brother and his family, but hopefully they can make it next year!|
Every summer my in-laws rent a house on the beach for a week and invite their kids and respective families to come for however many days they can. We were able to make it from Thurs-Sun this year and hopefully can stay longer next year. This year the house was in Southern Shores, NC and it was absolutely beautiful. We couldn't have asked for more perfect weather while we we were there. We got to enjoy each others company, the beach and a few local restaurants. Next year we hope we can do more sightseeing and introduce Baby Knives to some of our favorite spots in the Kittyhawk area. Pretty sure she'll be a big kite fan!
Baby Knives had never seen the ocean before and she greeted it with her usual calm demeanor and would have happily sat on her Mimi's lap letting the waves splash their legs all day long. I credit her sleeping well the entire trip to her cousins and the beach wearing her out each day! I can't wait to take her next year when she'll be running all over the sand, it'll be insane but a ton of fun.
Below are a few of our favorite snapshots of our mini-vacation (so thankful we bought a portable DVD player for Baby Knives before we left, it made the 4 hour drive bearable!)
