We crossed the bridge into the Outer Banks and breathed a sigh of relief! Hurricane Matthew had struck the night before and left behind flooding and storm damage. Not long after we crossed, they closed down the bridge. Part of our group tried to cross the next day only to be told it just wasn’t possible. Right before they were about to give up and turn around, an officer took pity on them (thanks to a crying little baby!!!!!) and let them cross. And then our post-storm week of fun began!
I’ve never before seen so much sea foam just rolling around on the shore! And I’ve neeeeeever seen so many beautiful shells lying around on the beach. We stocked up ; )
And we made crafts.
And we walked on the beach.
And we ate A LOT.
And there were so many gluten-free treats available that I was in heaven.
And I ate a Duck Donut even though it wasn’t gluten-free. (It was worth it.)
Mostly though, I just loved waking up all week long to the sleepy little faces of my nieces and nephews. Watching kids have fun and laugh and be silly always heals my soul.
I’m not a videographer by any means, but I have fun taking video sometimes. Videos like this are so precious to view now … but are so, so wonderful to view in the future. They also do a good job of showing how to get happy photos on a photo session! Just have fun. Play. Laugh. Wear your jammies. Get wet. Let go and have fun … and we’ll get the best pictures ever!
Much love to all my little nieces and nephews … their Mommies and Daddies … and Nonnis and Poppis, too : )
