Happy Tuesday Everyone!
Today, I'm finishing up my OBX vacation recap! That's right, I took so many pictures, this trip deserved a two-part post!
Each day started with a full breakfast, so I definitely couldn't leave that out! My Dad is an amazing cook, and breakfast foods are his specialty!
After everyone was full, we spent our mornings hanging around the house or at the pool before going on an outing for the day.
You can see here that some of our group preferred nap time!
I spent all the time that I could in the sun, attempting to come back with at least a base tan!
Around lunch time, we'd come in, eat, shower, and get ready for whatever fun outing we'd decided on for that day.
One afternoon, we visited the Wright Brothers National Memorial in Kill Devil Hills, just ten minutes from where we were staying.
It was a beautiful day, and we had fun just walking around and being tourists.
Another afternoon, we traveled to the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse!
The four of us actually climbed all 248 of the spiral stairs, which is equal to a 12-story building!
The view from the top!
This was such a fun trip for our family, and I would highly recommend it!
We enjoyed lunch at a pizza/diner-type place called Angelos just outside the lighthouse area.
On Wednesday evening, the forecast showed perfect weather, so we grabbed tickets for "The Lost Colony" outdoor drama in Manteo. After an amazing dinner at the beach house, we got dressed up and went to the show!
Before the week was over, Paisley made sure to try out all the cool furniture in the house, and have adequate doggie time on the beach!
On our last night, we had a delicious dinner at Outback...it was time for a break from our seafood-filled week. We also made sure to grab some ice cream at "Scoops" near Kitty Hawk Kites!
Before dinner on our last night!
On Saturday morning, after seven amazing days, we packed up our things bright and early to head back home. Though I was sad to leave, I am so thankful for such a wonderful vacation. It blew my goal for 2013 way out of the water!
I will definitely be going back to the Outer Banks again soon, and this Doodle Bug says she's in too!

As always, Have a Sweet Day!
