Thoughts for Thursday: August Outer Banks Trip

Happy Thursday Friends!  Sorry I've been MIA lately.  Our house didn't have wi-fi last week at the beach and then this week I've been trying to get back into the swing of things.  Honestly not having wi-fi was kind of nice and felt good to get disconnect in some ways.

We headed down to Duck, NC in the Outer Banks with two other couples and their kids.  It was so much fun and the boys were a blast on the beach.  I really wish I had more pictures but my kids were running around like maniacs so it was hard to keep up with them and document it all.  

We spent most of our time on the beach, enjoyed a lot of pizza and beer, and of course my favorite Duck Donuts!!  

My sister was able to capture a few family photos for us, and they turned out so well.  I can't believe how big my boys are getting!

We have one more trip to the beach on Labor Day weekend before I have to finally admit that summer is over and fall is here.  I will probably be here sporadically the next week as I try to soak up the last week of summer before it's back to reality!

I'm not sure I'm ready for all things blanket scarves, PSL, and boots but I am sort of excited for cooler weather... shhhh don't tell anyone.

  1. Looks like so much fun! It's good to get unplugged sometimes!

  2. What fun! I just love the beach, I live so close to it, yet we NEVER go! Need to change that. Looks like you had a blast and the fact that you get another beach get away, fun times ahead :) Happy Thursday!

  3. This is the second time I'm reading about Duck Donuts this week! Another blogger just went to OBX and raved about them! Now I'm drooling.

  4. YES to Duck Donuts! It looks like you had the best trip and disconnecting is such a nice (relieving) feeling sometimes!

  5. LOOOOOVE OBX! and i absolutely adore going to the beach and leaving my phone in my room the entire weekend - SUCH a good feeling :) We go to Avalon, NJ and they recently opened a Duck Donuts there... dangerously good!!!

  6. What a sweet family photo! Y'all look great!
