OBX Day 1

Some of you may that on me and my hunny celebrated 5 years of marriage last weekend. We had originally planned to do a romantic weekend away (meaning away from the kids) at Disney World but a few months ago (when Phoenix was not being the easiest baby) we decided against that idea. So we came up with the plan to go to the Outer Banks, a mere 3 hour drive, and take the kids (at least it would eliminate the stress of trying to find someone to watch them). We left last Friday and the drive was quite enjoyable. Both of the kids were really good in the car (surprisingly!). We got a hotel that was literally right on the beach, we got a 2 bedroom place (which turned out to be an awesome idea) and we were about 50 yards from the ocean. I feel like we were so spoiled, it will be hard to go back to the usual (aka parking far away). So we obviously went down to the beach right away when we got there.

Then we went out to eat at a local steakhouse/seafood place.

(the waitress brought Audrey a bowl of cucumber slices...which Audrey LOVED!)

We told our waitress that it was our anniversary and that Audrey had a birthday a few days earlier, so at the end of the dinner she brought us 3 balloons (I would have preferred a dessert...but the balloons were a nice thought). Audrey immediately released them...

and they got caught around a birds neck (don't worry though, I am 95% positive that the bird was fake).


We were exhausted by the end of the night!

to be continued...

Sounds like a blast!!! I know what you mean about the beach. We go to Topsail, in part, for that very reason. (parking nearby) Our plan was to take a cruise for our 10 year. When we planned that, we didn't envision that 10 years would find us with four kids, one less than a year old. So the cruise was nixed. But I think we had a good time anyway. ;)
