Outer Banks - Part 1 - The Beach

We had such a wonderful week at the Outer Banks with the Jackson's. We were blessed with fantastic weather and made so many precious memories. We are so grateful for time together as a family and for our dear friends. We can't wait until next year!

We had some perfect beach days! The kids all enjoyed the ocean (even Owen warmed up to it!). The boys were very brave and would go diving into the waves and even go over their heads! We were also able to go out to the sand dune and took Isaac and David out to it as well. We all enjoyed the sand...making sand castles, digging holes, making "pools", races on the beach, pizza on the beach and swimming in the ocean. It's such a blessing to observe the absolute joy that the kids had in each other and the ocean and sand. So many precious memories were made and I am so very grateful. We are refreshed and relaxed after such a fun week together.

I love my baby boy. Lili is my little sunshine. And I can't believe that he turned 5 months old today. Don't grow up so fast!!!

Pizza on the beach!

We loved having our Mimi with us. She made some very special memories with the boys and was a great help to us! It is a special memory that we will never forget!

Dave and David having some special time out at the sand bar.

Brothers enjoying each other.

These two are so adorable together!

David and Dave had a lot of special time together swimming in the ocean. David is becoming such a big boy and it's so special to see his relationship with his Dad grow and mature.
