Last week we were on vacation in the Outer Banks and needless to say, we're all a little bummed to be home and back into our normal routine. I wish we could live at the beach. I really don't think it'd ever get old!
First, this was the first year Jacob was actually brave enough to be in the ocean. The last two years he's just sort of hung out on a blanket and played in the sand and maaaaybe let his feet get wet. This year, though, he was all in the water! He even begged his Daddy to take him out further and further. Here are a few pictures of my little dare devil having fun in the water ...
Henry enjoyed some time in the pool last week, but wanted NOTHING to do with the sand. I wasn't even able to snap a picture of him with his feet in the sand because the poor baby would scream as soon as his feet touched it.
On Thursday, we took the kids on a dolphin tour ... Jacob was just excited to be going on a boat, I think. haha We did see some dolphins, thankfully. I was a little nervous we wouldn't because when we were little, we went on the same dolphin tour and didn't see a single dolphin! Thankfully I was able to snap some pictures of the dolphins just as they surfaced for some more air. Henry, poor kid, was too tuckered out and slept through most of it. Ah well ... there is always next year!
This week had a few "firsts" for Jacob (Henry was just too little to do much still) ... first time he drove a go-kart (or rode in one - Gee actually drove it), first time he climbed Jockeys Ridge, and first time he flew a kite. I love when either of them experience something for the first time ... it's like I'm experiencing it for the first time all over again!
We had to head home on Sunday ... it was sad, but at the same time we had an awesome time and look forward to the next time we get to vacation in the Outer Banks!
