Kitty Hawk Beach Trip 2008

Man it's been forever since we posted. That was never meant to happen, but I guess life sneaks itself in and other things like keeping family and friends updated on us get put aside. We have been quite busy since we last posted. We went home to Utah for Christmas and New Years for 3 weeks. We loved seeing our family and many friends. The kids loved sledding in the snow like old times. I can't believe it's already going on 2 years that we have moved to North Carolina. How time gets away!

We had the chance to drive 8 hours to see our friends from Utah Sam and Rachel Christensen. They own a rental house on Southern Shores which is 5 minutes north of Kitty Hawk (yes the place where the Wright Bros. discovered flight). We can't find a time during our stay that we didn't madly enjoy!! The trip was so wonderful. Thank you again Rachel and Sam!!!

I am going to add photo's from the trip, enjoy........I know we did.

This is the small house that we stayed at for the trip

We saw this in the distance getting off an exit to fill up gas

sad but true, this was the room that we had to live with staying at the beach

the back yard view looking towards the Atlantic Ocean

the heated pool......did I say heated, I sure did!!!!!

this was the boys king bed that they shared

the kids had to play on the beach the night we got there even though the sun was gone
