First, thank you to Ali Edwards for introducing me to ohlife.com. I was "gently reminded" to write down my observations over our 4 day vacation to Kill Devil Hills in the Outer Banks, NC.
Here's a few highlights:
While driving through NC, we decided that the official state dessert must be fudge. Seriously, there are signs for fudge everywhere. Also, crabs are ridiculously cheap there.
H liked playing with his sand toys (on the sheet, not the sand. He eats EVERYTHING.) Did NOT like having his little toes dipped in the water. A little worried that this trip would be a total bust if he hated the beach.
After a pretty rough night of not sleeping, we decided to try "Stack 'Em High" for breakfast. Seriously, isn't that an awesome name for a pancake place? It looked like a little family-owned shop that had been there for 30 years, which is what I love. Tried to get H to eat his oatmeal here, but he was way too interested in everything around him.
Decided to try the pool since we know H likes that. Success! Had a lot of fun letting him "swim." Headed to the beach to try again while he was in a good mood. Woo to the hoo, he loved it! Not surprising, since it normally takes a few tries for him to really warm up to something. (Not people though, he's definitely a people person like his Daddy).
