This weekend was filled with more fun than I have probably had in all of 2011 combined!
We headed down to the Outer Banks for a little impromptu vacation. JD found a great deal on a hotel room at The First Colony Inn. We've stayed there a few times now. It's an older Bed and Breakfast slash beach hotel type place. It's not super fancy like our favorite spot - The Sanderling, but the people are super friendly, the rooms are charming and the location is great!
We were a little worried because Trey has been sleeping in his crib at night since he was 4 weeks old. We packed up the pack and play and hoped for the best!
And... success! Trey went down at 8:45 and slept until 8 am the next morning. He was a little fidgety at first but didn't make one peep all night!! He's always been an awesome sleeper and this just made me even more excited to go on trips with him in the future!
We ate, we shopped, we beached, we napped, we ate some more! It was literally a perfect weekend - relaxing, silly and fun. On Sunday we went down to Manteo by the water and walked all around, exploring the the area. We enjoyed watching the boats and had an awesome lunch outside.
I took lots and lots of pictures, I know I'm obsessed, clearly...
Trey got SO excited when he saw the ocean - he is definitely my little beach bum!
The beach makes him sleepy

He's clearly just too cool

Once we got home we decided to keep the fun going and cookout on the grill and enjoy some time on our back deck!
