We just got back from a 2 week vacation. Four days were spent driving, which I don't really mind. Seven days we stayed at my mom's 'Winter Home' in Bonita Springs, Florida. And one day at Nags Head in the Outer Banks (OBX), North Carolina.
It's been over 2 years since we had any kind of real vacation, so this was something we really needed.
This was the first time our kids were at the beach. Alana had a great time in the sand, but was a little scared of the water. Owen had fun in the sand and was not afraid of the water, he crawled right out into it and it didn't phase him.
In the Outer Banks we went to see three light houses: Cape Hatteras, Bodie Island, and Currituck Beach. Alana really liked the light houses. We are hoping to be able to go back to the Outer Banks later this year.
It was great to relax and have some fun in the sun.
