Beach Vacation

Last week, we went on a very fun vacation to Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina. Matt's parents rented a beautiful house right on the beach for all of us to get together and enjoy a week together.

Warning! Many pictures to follow!

Here's a video of the view from the balcony outside our room and of the adults making a whirlpool for the kids in the pool. Fun stuff!

After leaving the beach house, we went to see our friends Matt and Courtney who happened to be nearby in Myrtle Beach on vacation. On our way out of town we stopped for some quick go-kart fun!

Wow, what a fun vacation! I love Oliver's, "this looks like the kind of shell that has an animal in it." :)

Looks like heaven!

That looks like SUCH a fun vacation! What a gorgeous view you had, right on the beach! The boys are getting so big. We miss you guys so much, more than I can say. Looks like you're enjoying every bit of your summer break!
