Corolla, NC Vacation

We just got home from our OBX vacation last night and it was awesome!  We arrived late Thursday night and spent Friday getting settled in and ready for the big wedding Saturday!  The weather was CRAZY on Saturday, as I’m sure most of you here at home have heard.  The rain held off until after the wedding was over, but the wind was insane and we had tornadoes touch down very close to us.  Please keep the victims of the NC tornadoes in your prayers.  We were very lucky to not be affected and to have the wedding go off without a hitch.

Other than Saturday, we had great weather and got three good days in at the beach.  Luke LOVED the beach.  Well, he loved the sand.  He hated the water because it was ice cold.  I think he’ll like putting his toes in the water this summer when it’s warm.  IMG_2121

my man appreciates a great beach nap, just like his Mommy


Andrea was such a doll all week.  She loves when I swing her around and sing Disney songs to her :)

This vacation was all about relaxation and lazy days.

So, that’s our vacation in a nutshell.  Hopefully we’ll get some more beach time in this summer in Ocean City because I can’t wait to see Luke get excited about the beach again :)
