Hello Everyone!

Wohooo! I'm back from my awesome vacation, back to work, and back into the blogging world. Indeed I missed all of you! I wish I could take you with me and experience all the fun stuff that me and my family enjoyed.  It was truly a very fun vacation, relaxing, and just feel great being with my beloved family. We went to Outerbanks, North Carolina. Yes! As you may remembered my first blog post about my Outerbanks experience back in 2013 and then followed by Outerbanks escapade in 2014.

Packed with excitement I'm taking you with me as we unfold all the fun stuff Outerbanks, NC has to offer! Started off by hitting the road at midnight. O Yea! we drove overnight along with my in-laws. Had a delicious stop for breakfast at IHOP. ( blink together everyone) Viola! we reached our final destination Outerbanks, NC. Yippee!!We stayed in a private condo with easy access to the beach, indoor pool and very close to stores, restaurants and gift shoppe (same place that we stayed last year and the year before that:)

Let's get going and start our fun Outerbanks Adventure!:)

Sunday Fun Outdoor Cookout
We all hit the beach with full BLAST and EXCITEMENT!  when I say (WE I meant all 16 of us that includes the adult and the kids) and to make this vacation super fun and exciting! We had fun Outdoor Cookout. It was DELICIOUS! We had brats, burger, hotdog, beans, chips, and all tasty food. Yum!




Monday- It's Granny Helen's Birthday
After spending time in the pool and on the beach. We had delicious dinner at Miller's Seafood and Steakhouse in celebration of Granny Helen Birthday. The ambiance of the place was inviting and relaxing. The food is EXCELLENT- they served us with hush puppies as we waited for our order. I had Grilled Mahi-Mahi with tropical salsa, rice and steamed vegetables. It was delicious and impressive food. We head home to finished off the celebration. We had strawberry cake and ice cream for dessert.



Tuesday- Sweetness Overload
This is the DAY were we spent our time with our family. So Me, hubby, Reese and the kids head out to have dinner at Applebees. I ordered baby back rib with sweet fries on the side, which is by the way delicious. Then, we went to shopped for souvenirs and had long sweet walked on the beach (holding hands! char!) and watched the sunset. Awesome!

We had fantastic dinner that includes meatloaf, baked macaroni and cheese, chicken, and corn prepared by Mom Cheri, Emma, Abbey and Reese. It super TASTY! and had amazing Bonfire and Smore's experience at the beach. We sang, talked and had fun with sparkles. It feels great to hear the waves splashed and smiles on everyone's faces. Amazing!

In celebration of Quinn's birthday. We all went to see Dolphins and YES! I saw Dolphins up close. It was very exciting moment and unforgettable. The whole Dolphin Tour experience is phenomenal. 
Then- we had dinner at this restaurant (which I totally forgot the name) I had Caribbean Tuna with rice and beans on the side, and Mango Colada for drink to compliment my super tasty dinner. We continue the party at my sister-in-law's place and had cake and ice cream. Yum!


Friday- Seafood Adventure & Jockey's Ridge Escapade
