Steppin' it up for Father's Day

The boys got Aaron a Fitbit Charge for Father's Day! Now we can compete on our steps.

Aaron made the discovery however that I take almost two steps for everyone one of his so now he has to step it up! Heh heh.

Til next year...

Another great OBX vacation has come to an end.

I think the pooches are as bummed as we are.

Beach fun at night

We tried some new things at the beach this year. After dark we walked down to the sand and set off some paper lanterns. We were sure to make sure the wind was blowing out to see to avoid any accidents.

Aaron also brought his steel wool spinning supplies and we did some long exposures down on the beach.

A sheriff stopped by to see what we were doing and told us to "Have fun." *whew*

In this one you can see car lights coming down the beach. I like how these turned out!

Pugs on vacation

The reason we love this spot at OBX is because we can bring our pugs with us.

Dogs need vacations too!

Oscar and Hugo love the beach!

Hugo especially loves running in the waves.

They also love coming back inside to the air conditioning and snacks.

Beach fisherman

The dedicated fisherman was back at it this year.

First he caught a sting ray. That went back into the ocean after we all ooohed and ahhhed over it.

Then he caught a crab which was female and was thrown back in also.

So no big fish feast this year but as they say, a bad day fishing is better than a good day at work.

It's a good day when I find sand dollars on the beach.

Whole shells this size are a rarity too! I love beachcombing.

New beach kite

I love flying kites at the beach. The constant breeze makes it so easy. Every year we get a new kite and we have quite a collection. This year we got this wee little parfoil kite. It packages up small so you can take it anywhere (like camping!) and it doesn't have any rods to break.

Here is how it looks in the sky.

Tee hee.
