Happy 12th Anniversary Jesse!

  We celebrated our 12th anniversary in OBX this year. We had a fun day taking a hike, going out for milkshakes, and walking on the beach.
Hiking in the march :)
 
Thanks Papa for the help!
Milkshakes on a hammock!
 

 So thankful for each day with this guy.
 Poor little Savannah had the stomach bug this day. She kinda just laid low.
   It's a joy to be Jesse's wife. I love every part of life by his side.
 
The grand kids and grandparents
So thankful for this family and the time we spent at the beach!

Surfing Lessons!

 Mimi and Papa gave Maddie and Charis a surf lesson for their birthday! We had such a fun time watching the girls learn to catch a wave.


 
It's hard to see, but she's up!

 Thank you for this wonderful experience, Papa and Mimi!

Hatteras and Ocracoke

We drove about an hour to Hatteras and found some beautiful shells not he beach.

Then we climbed the lighthouse- super interesting that this lighthouse was moved due to the changing shoreline from storms.

 

     

 From there we went to Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum.
 Then we took a ferry ride to Ocracoke.
 Maddie fed the birds :)





 

We enjoyed the lovely sunset that evening!
