North Carolina

My family took a vacation back at the end of July to North Carolina. It was beautiful there as we rented a beach house straight out of a Nicholas Sparks' book. We hung out at the beach, found some cool lighthouses, did a 1,000 piece puzzle, played with our Annie and her family, ate delicious kettle chips, ate crab at this crazy all you can seafood buffet, played cards, swam in an ocean full of jelly fish, watched movies, read books, etc. I loved spending some quality time with the family!

It was a long day for little Sage

We got to ride these segways around on a tour to see wild horses. It was sweet. Matthew and I decided we should buy one so we can drive it to campus. So fun.

Just our backyard

I really think they are great parents. Plus this is a great picture of them

We had some barbecue out by the Sound one night as the sun set. Beautiful.
