Vacation...All we ever needed...Vacation, had to get away

No long play by play but I'll sum up a week of:

relaxing at the beach, by the pool, at the neighborhood marina at a 4th of July regatta, shrimp eating, fireworks over historic Manteo while eating ice cream, kite flying on the beach, hammock shopping, True Blood Season 3 watching, sleeping in, doughnut eating, go-kart riding, napping, day trips to the Hatteras Lighthouse and Ocracoke Island via ferry, book reading, more trips to the beach side playground that imagined, and a kayaking trip on the Albemarle sound with my pint-sized crew member.

It was exactly what we needed.

It was exactly want we wanted for our 2011 family vacation.

It also gave me a most memorial Ben date night of the year, maybe ever.

Awesome! You need to send me where you stayed and what you saw. I'm already trying to figure out next summer!

Jealous! I've been thinking that I want to take the girls kayaking when they get a bit older. I'm just terrified that they will get to squirmy and knock us all in the water! Good to see you guys had some time for fun after all the moving chaos!
