OIB Oysterfest

We are back from a big weekend in Ocean Isle. They hosted North Carolina's Oyster Festival and it was a popular time to be on the island!

We got there around 4pm on Friday so had time to do a few house things and then go to the concert that kicked off the weekend!

It was a beautiful night.

Best sunsets are at the beach!

Saturday morning I got up and went for a walk. Watching the sun rise on the beach is one of my favorite things. 

Went back and made the kids breakfast then we all went up to the Oyster Fest. Ice cream and funnel cake for breakfast because why not!

Grady's first face painting - a dinosaur!

And a puppy!

While Kevin met the electrician to fix some electrical issues from the hurricane, the kids and I watched the professionals shuck oysters!

Lots of playground time!

They play together so well...most of the time. Not all of the time but most!

Found some friends and took a horrible picture of four cute kiddos having more funnel cakes and sunset slush!

Mills likes being at the beach! He's a free boy there!

We had dinner at our friend's house Saturday night which is always a good time. How about that Tennessee Alabama game?! Crazy.

Sunday morning I took the kiddos to 59 Causeway for breakfast. Another one of my fav things to do - best view in the house sitting right here eating breakfast!

Oh and to be clear - it's not all rainbows and sunshine. In addition to the electrical issues at the house, we also have a dead hot water heater so it was a cold shower kind of weekend. Kids toughed it out on night one but took one at our friend's house on night two! Many years of doing ASP (Appalachia Service Project) helped me take a couple cold showers without complaining! So now we have to get that fixed...!!!

Then we hit the road back to Charlotte pretty early! Molly Anne had her last field hockey game and a birthday party! More pictures of field hockey to come!

Chat soon!
