OuterBanks, North Carolina Adventure

Family Adventure at OuterBanks, North Carolina



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!:)
- Note: We hangout in the beach and pool everyday! -:)

  
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!


Wednesday- Bonfire and Smore's Experience
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!
 

Thursday- Dolphin Tour and Quinn's Birthday Celebration
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
Before heading back in Ohio we had an awesome seafood adventure . As you all know me, I'm such a huge seafood fan! We went to TAPHOUSE and I ordered Seafood Platter which compose of steamed crab legs, shrimp and clamps. Yum! It's like Seafood galore adventure- so GOOD!
Then, we went out to experience the giant sand dune at Jockey's Ridge Park. Loved seeing my kids, nephews, nieces and in-laws enjoying the sunset and the scenic view.

 

Saturday- Virginia Beach, Jollibee Experience!

Jollibee is a famous fast food in the Philippines kinda like Mcdonald's here in the US. So, We stopped by for lunch before heading home. I was totally impressed with whole experience. It just feel like I'm in the Philippines! the crowd, the food and the feeling!! Wohoo! It feel great to have Chickenjoy meal, Halo-Halo and Spaghetti after 3 years! LOVE! LOVE Jollibee!!
 And that's how I spent my amazing summer vacation! Truly an experience to remember forever!


Home Sweet Home- After long hour of driving we finally HOME. I hope you enjoy reading my Outerbanks Adventures. And that's how I spent my amazing summer vacation together with my beloved family Hubby, Reese, Reyna, Garyn, Granny Helen, Mom Cheri (mother in-law)
Sister in-laws (Tacy, Kindra, Emma and Abbey)

  19. sweet couple! You really had fun! It is very clear in the pictures. How did the non-Filipinos find Jollibee? Did they enjoy the halo-halo (which is odd because they do not sell halo-halo in Jollibee here)?
