Outer Banks Vacation Part 2

Ok, when I left off at part 1 we had just arrived in the Outer Banks after about a 3 hour drive from Raleigh. Our house was a 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom condo in Kill Devil Hills on the beach. It had a LOT of stairs, both inside the condo and outside of it....but I could hear the ocean from my balcony and that made me think less about my aching back after carrying a 17 month old up and down steps all day long....

The first day of the trip, Hannah was not a fan of her first steps onto the sand. She curled her toes up and lifted her legs up to get them out of the sand and totally hated it...but then before long she was running into the water with her clothes on!

We spent a LOT of time at the pool

and a LOT of time at the beach

We went putt putting one morning.....thinking we were smart to go right when it opened at 9:30am to beat the heat... yeah, we did not beat the heat. Saying it was hot was the understatement of the year....

We drove into a neighboring town to go shopping and have lunch on the boardwalk on a cooler breezy day

We took a dolphin watching tour and saw TONS of dolphins!

The trip home got a little windy though :)

We drank champagne and watched the bachelor- bye farmer Chris!

I'm pretty sure I went to wings or a wings-like store 4 times

Vacation is definitely not the same with a toddler, but having family around helped a ton and gave us the opportunity to go out to dinner a couple of times and have some baby free time at the pool/beach during nap times. One night we had to try out this little dive seafood restaurant called Armstrong's Seafood.

...but I think I'll save that and the rest of the food from our trip for a third and final post :)

Bye for now!
