Exploring the Outah Banks, NC

Wright Brothers National Memorial, Kitty Hawk, NC- We don't normally see that

See Things That You Don't Normally See... that was my family's motto after we went to the Outer Banks for my sister's birthday weekend. We have the tendency to want to relax when we are together, especially when we are getting away from our normal, hectic day to day lives. But this trip, we powered through some sight seeing and were certainly better for it. I think that I will take that little motto on my daily excursions and might have a better attitude about getting lost or being detoured on a country road. I don't normally see it; I should try to enjoy it.

The boulder signified where these dudes actually took off for the first time. There were the old rails and everything there. Certainly was pretty cool to imagine being there that day...

Believe it or not, it took us quite a bit of maneuvering to shimmy up on top of this massive metal structure all so my mother could have her picture.

Climbing to the top of this lighthouse certainly helped work off the seafood dinner we had the night before... but the view was quite worth it.

A family trip to remember... and we didn't even fight once ;-)
