{Random} OBX

Ohhh, OBX. I just adore you. My family has been vacationing in Corolla, North Carolina for a week in the summer since I was in high school. The vacation has grown to include my mom's two brothers and their families as well. When all three families are there, we're talking around 40 plus people. Nothing better.

We were fortunate this year to have amazing weather during the last week of August, which is prime time for hurricanes to sweep up the east coast and wreck major havoc. Every single day was gorgeous complete with blue skies and brillant sunshine.

This is one of my favorite pics of my little man on vaca this year. He doesn't stay still for very long and rarely will look at the camera and smile on cue, so it was absolutely wonderful to have an opportunity where he was smiling and stationary for a minute to snap his sweet face. Plus, it captures what summer vacations are all about -- sun, sand, and carefree fun.

Our family attempted family pics on the beach again this year. We were missing three family members so there were some holes :-{ My brother and wife were unable to be there and my sister's hubby as well. We still had fun taking the pics, but it's not quite the same when some of your peeps are missing.

My sister snapped this pic of me at 28 weeks pregnant with baby #2. Other than being a little tired from chasing after my on-the-move 2 1/2 year old, I'm feeling really good and having another great pregnancy. Blessed!

Some of the vacation highlights included:

- Ghost crab hunting with the kids {pic above}. They were sooo cute & excited!
- Family pics on the beach
- Pool pizza party with the entire clan
- Beautiful beach days with cousins
- Family dinners
- Nap time {which meant a few hours of relaxation for us adults ;-}

**Back to REALITY on Tuesday. It doesn't seem quite so overwhelming this year because I'm only working until the first week of November. Then I'm off until the following September to be home with my little boy and new baby boy/girl!
**ENJOY your Labor Day weekend!
