Before going to the beach, Mini-Book Mama and I attended the Great American Scrapbook Convention in Virginia. It was a blast!
While we scrapped, the guys went into D.C. for some sightseeing!
The day after the convention ended, we hit the road for North Carolina and the Outer Banks. Our first sights of the beach were very welcome after the long drive.
Then we tried our luck out in the waves and on the beach building sand castles.
Of course, it was also great just hanging out around the pool back at our beach house. It had a Tiki Bar which was the favorite spot for the guys.
One of the days we went to visit lighthouses - Bodie Island and Cape Hatteras. A few of us made it all the way to the top at Hatteras - what a view!!!
We couldn't get enough of the beach. It was awesome just for hanging out and watching the waves. The ghost crabs were fun to watch, also.
