I grew up in North Carolina, but last year was the first time I had ever visited the Outer Banks. Our vacation plans had fallen through and some good friends invited us down to spend the week with them. We had the best time, and decided to go back as often as possible. Of course, then life rushed back in & before we knew it, we were at the end of this summer without ever making the trip down there. We’re only two hours away! But thankfully we have some other great friends who invited us down to spend the week with them! Yes, I realize we are like, the luckiest people in the world. We have fantastic friends! We weren’t able to go fro a whole week, but we did get to spend two glorious days down there.As soon as we got to the banks, we stopped for some delicious BBQ at Sooey’s BBQ in Nags Head. It was delicious! And I snapped this for Instagram. I’m pretty much in love with it, as is all of Facebook. 😉We had zero agenda for the weekend except to relax and go to the beach. The guys spent most of their time watching documentaries & forensic shows while the girls went shopping & hit the beach. The kids? They pretty much got into their own shenanigans all weekend.Dancing, giving giraffe kisses to the baby…… giving real kisses to the baby…… and more playing with the baby. Hazel seems to have a real gift in loving and mothering. It is very sweet!!And sometimes you hear an urgent, “Help!” coming from the restroom and find all the toilet paper in the toilet.Annndddd more baby kisses.The toddlers also spent a fair amount of time in the loft playing with fly swatters. We pretty much left all our parenting rules in Virginia this weekend. 😉These two are 10 days apart and have always spent lots of time together. It’s so sweet to watch them grow and develop alongside each other. Sometimes they’ll both do the same things at the same time, and other times, it’s like they’re on separate planets!Thank you, Bozungs, for inviting us!This is what toddlers look like when you make them hug each other, and they hug so hard they end up falling. I’m pretty sure they’re both reevaluating life at this point!
