Outer Banks Family Pictures

Happy Birthday Grandpa - Outer Banks, NC

In May we surprised Grandpa for his 80th birthday and spent the week in the Outer Banks, NC. We had a house on the beach with a pool and spa. We had an amazing week.

Grandpa with his sons.

Grandpa even played football with us. Tyler loves football too.
Our house is behind us, we almost had the entire beach to ourselves. It was wonderful.

We loved playing with our cousins.

Steve and Marta made us smores. Yummy.

We had a great time with our family.
Happy Birthday Grandpa! Aunt Marta made him a book with pictures and letters of all his loved ones.
Relaxing with Gabe.
We went to the Wright Brothers museum.

Another day we took a tour to see wild horses on the beach. We rode on an open-air truck to see the horses.
They are beautiful horses and we got so close.
I loved driving on the beach.

Ty and I love Mommy.

Steve helped a man catch a sting ray. He did a great job.

Matthew's 4th Birthday

For my 4th birthday party, we had a train themed party at a toy store. All my friends had a great time playing with trains, decorating our own train and watching a Thomas show.

They also had model trains in the store so we got to play with them too.

I loved being the engineer.

Here we are watching a movie.

We got to have pizza and watermelon and then birthday cake.

I got too many presents. Here I am opening my present from Nana and Papa, they watched me open it on Skype.
My new love is spiderman. I was so happy to get him. I also got a small spiderman so Tyler could play too.

I got a lego helicopter and Daddy helped me put it together. I love legos.
I helped Mom make my 4 year old cake.

I loved all my presents.

I love my police costume. Tyler wasn't sure when I gave him his first ticket. He was a little confused. I'm sure it won't be the last ticket he gets. :)
