Jockey Ridge National Park

Outerbanks or Bust!!!!

On Friday night, May 23rd at 7:00 pm we pulled out of our driveway for our 13 hour drive to Nags Head. The trip down was extrememly long and tiring. Overall the kids did pretty well. We arrived at the house around 9:00 am on Saturday morning. After some naps and showers, we were ready to go!


On our first day there, we stopped by Kitty Hawk Kites and bought Grace a brand new kite to fly. The best place for flying kites in the Outer Banks is Jockey Ridge National Park. So we were off for our first full day of VACATION!!


Time out for a picture before our hike up the dune.

Grace got her kite to go the farthest of anyone out that day.

While Grace was flying her kite, Gauge thought this would be a great opportunity to taste some sand for the first time!
P.S. The reason it has taken me so long to get vacation pictures on here is because I'm a huge dork! When we got to Jockey Ridge.....I noticed that I had forgotten to put the large memory chip in my camera! So, I have had to wait and get pictures off of my moms camera to post.
