Our Outer Banks, NC. Vacation 2013
Hello everyone! I'm back from my family vacation, back to work and of course back to blogging. I missed you guys!:)There's nothing I could complained about my vacation. It was memorable and fun experience. We stayed in private condo with easy access to the beach, indoor pool and very close to stores, restaurants and gift shoppe. I can looked up the beautiful ocean view right on the deck. I wished, we could spent more time...and I'm excited to share my food escapade and all the memorable things.:)
After 13 hours of driving we finally arrived at Nags Head, NC. Due to excitement I just threw my bags on the condo and head on the beach along with my kids and hubby and that's how things started..:)
We started the day by heading to the beach. It is so much joy seeing my kiddies having fun playing on the beach. Then we head out to Applebee's for dinner in celebration with Granny's birthday. It was fun and memorable experience and the food is just delicious.
( Blackened sirloin over potatoes & shrimp creamy fettuccine)
I was happy to cooked for everybody, So, I made rice, green beans, caldereta minus the peas ( beef stew with potato and carrots) and chocolate chunk peanut butter brownies for dessert
After the dinner the whole family had a camp fire and s'mores on the beach. It was amazing experience:)
Me, Reese and Hubby head out for a wonderful seafood lunch at Dirty Dicks Crab House. It was AWESOME! seafood experience for me. Dirty Dicks, also offered good variety selection to those non-seafood fan. Hubby got some ( beef fried Po Boy sandwich with fries) Reese ( Pulled Pork sandwich and chips):)
shrimp,lobster, scallop kabobs over wild rice, Of course you can't leave dirty dicks without trying their crab,So, why not? I ordered crab legs and it goes along with potato, corn on the cob and sausage. I ate everything exclude the potato and corn. It's unbelievable how I ate everything (hahahha) It was fun, scrumptious experience :)
After lunch we head out on the beach where my kiddies are playing with their cousins.
My mother in-law (Cheri) prepared cook out dinner for everybody, we had burgers, hotdogs, bratwurst, bake beans, corn, fruits,tater tots. The food is really good.:)
Then, for the first time. I got a chanced to watched an outdoor play " The Lost Colony" I would say MUST SEE if you're having a vacation at Outer Banks. I love the show and how all the characters played. I'm wondering what happened to them? they just simply vanished with no trace of evidence, nothing.... One theory in my mind they probably died with disease.. I don't know.:)
( excited to watched " The Lost Colony"@ Raonoke Island, NC )
We treat the kiddies by heading to the movie theater to watched " TURBO" on first day released. The movie is really nice and entertaining. My kids and their cousins LOVED IT:)
My sister in-law (Kindra) prepared Mexican dinner for everybody, We had Bake Taco's, Mexican rice, re-fried beans and chocolate M&M's icecream. Delicious as always!
We had meatloaf, salad, potatoes,beans for dinner prepared by Granny Helen and chocolate brownies for dessert.. YUMMO! perfect family night.
The whole family head out to "Jockey Ridge"- the tallest natural sand dune system in the Eastern United States. Located in Nags Head, it is one of the most significant landmarks on the Outer Banks, North Carolina. Always changing, always beautiful… (source: http://jockeysridgestatepark.com/)
