We spent this past week at Corolla in the Outer Banks. We had a great time going to the beach, swimming in the pool, lounging in the hot tub, watching movies, shooting pool, riding bikes, being tourists, and even using the gym from time to time! Here are a few snapshots from our summer vacation. ;)

Rob and Charlotte outside the Elizabethan Gardens on Roanoke Island. We went there to see the lost colony- the English settlement at Roanoke that disappeared... but, umm, nobody knows exactly where it is because it's lost.

The Wright brothers memorial at Kitty Hawk. We took our kite and flew it from the top of the hill. We also enjoyed the museum and learning about the first airplane flights.

I don't know why I'm standing on my toes in this picture... just something I tend to do when standing next to Rob. ;)

Charlotte didn't "enjoy" the sand and waves but she tolerated them okay. She did like looking for seashells though and we brought home her favorite ones. It was awesome to have the beach to ourselves! And while there was a lot of talk about Gabrielle, we had gorgeous weather with hardly a drop of rain all week.

Charlotte REALLY liked swimming in the pool. She would stand on the step and hold my hands and jump off into the "deep" water and kick her legs! By the end of the week she even put her face in the water to "blow bubbles." (Although I'm pretty sure she was just trying to drink the pool.)

Gee, I wonder who wrote that in the sand!

On our way home we decided to make a detour to Colonial Williamsburg. I had never been there before and was curious about it. We only walked around for a couple of hours but it seems like a pretty neat place. We'll have to go back when Charlotte is a bit older I think. This is Rob and Charlotte standing in front of the Governor's Mansion.

I LOVE Colonial Williamsburg! We should all go together sometime when the kids are older. There is so much fun stuff to do. I like it more than Kris, though :)
