The OuterBanks with Sydney

Sydney and her parents came from Alaska to travel with us for a bit - here she is enjoying a snack in rural North Carolina

The Currituck Lighthouse

We made it to the top!

Such a beautiful view!

Sydney back on the ground - she decided coming down was more scary than going up - but she did it all on her own!

At the Wright Brother's Memorial in Kill Devil Hills, NC. The stones represent the length of each of the first four flights.

They decided to run the length of the fourth flight to see if it would be faster to run it or fly it. With TSA these days we decided running it would be better.

We ran up that hill!

Beach time - I think Sydney could live in the waves!

Stopped at the Virginia/North Carolina state line in order to get a picture of both states borders.

Gretchen and the kids met us in Williamsburg - it was so cool to have all the grandkids together!

Scott & his girls

It was really cool to see how quickly Sydney and Dulce became friends.

They found an empty stage so they decided to put on a show for us.

Balancing and smiling at the same time is hard!

Dulce & Sean brought a matching shirt for Sydney

Cape Hatteras Lighthouse

This reflecting pool was not here a few weeks ago - they've had a lot of rain lately!

Sydney climbed this lighthouse too!

Listening to a ranger led talk about turtles

Bodie Island Lighthouse - we weren't able to climb it because the tickets were all sold out.

Brian picking out his shells...
;-) actually they are Sydney's
Ocracoke Island Lighthouse - this one is owned by the Coast Guard and you can't climb it.
