This year we headed to Duck a bit earlier and caught the 4th of July in OBX. It was a great week, although I was admittedly less active than prior years and feel like I sat around a lot of the week (maybe that’s a good thing – it was the beginning of the Rose plague). Kaya and Laney are old enough to finally fall in love with swimming in the ocean and jumping waves – they were downright insatiable. Maggie took a few good beach naps herself. Next year I am going to promise myself to actually get to ride a wave or two without holding up a kid. Many thanks to all the participants for making it such a great successful week!
