Emerald Isle? Yes, Please!

Last year, my family spent the final week of July at Emerald Isle, NC. Anticipating a future with children living all over the place, I suggested (My husband will say, “insisted”) we rent a house right on the beach to make the week really special.

Our gateway to the ocean!

 

Who wouldn’t want to spend time with these people??

 

It was a lazy week of playing cards.

Notice M (for Mom) won this hearts game!

And playing games.

Bananagrams, anyone?

 

Scary selfie!

 

And working a puzzle.

Such concentration!

Two heads are better than one.

 

Dollar store puzzle = one missing piece!

And reading books.

In the den.

At the kitchen table (with coffee, too!)

On the porch.

On the beach.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Did I mention that we read books?

 

Riding the waves.

 

 

Yes, we actually made it into the ocean, too.

 

 

 

 

 

And enjoyed a little site seeing after dinner in Beaufort.

Maybe we shouldn’t be let loose in town!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We tried so hard for a decent Christmas card picture.

 

Till next time, Emerald Isle. We love you!
