Here are a ton of pictures from days 1-3 of our vacation:
After breakfast at Chick-Fil-A, been on the road for 2 hours...
Ben took some scenic pictures from our six-hour-drive
Driving onto the island
When we got to Roanoke Island, we stopped at the aquarium.
It was such a great stop!
We enjoyed lunch and a bunch of animals :)
Caroline at the entrance to the aquarium
Trying to get a picture with both girls...
Searching for fossils
At the entrance
The girls LOVED it!!!
Love this guy!
The girls loved every. single. exhibit!
Ben even touched the stingrays and showed the girls
The jellyfish room
The big shark room
Our rental house was about an hour away from the aquarium. We stopped at a grocery store to grab some fresh produce and milk and then headed to our rental house. After unpacking and dinner, we took the girls to the beach.
Beautiful, relaxing, wonderful :)
Ben in his happy place
Caroline scared of the water :)
Elizabeth just IN LOVE with the beach and ocean
Caroline was much happier a little later...
Enjoying the beach with my big girl
She just had to get in the water...
Baby was happy too!
Headed back to the house
On Sunday morning, we loaded up our gear and headed to the beach for fun in the sun! It was a great day of relaxing at the beach, enjoying vacation, and playing in the water with the kids.
Our beach setup
The girls built sandcastles and played in the water ALL DAY
Sunday afternoon, Elizabeth enjoyed her oreo snack on the deck
Monday morning we woke up to a tropical storm over the ocean
It never made land, but it made some beautiful pictures :)
Because of the high ripe tide, we stayed in the pool all day Monday
It was so humid, every time you walked outside all the lenses fogged up.
We gave Ben the inflatable rings for his birthday.
We had a great day at the pool!
And Monday night, my mom and I had took a tequila shot because we promised Ben we would :)
Ben- very happy we took our tequila shot
That is days 1 through 3.
Happy Wednesday y'all!
