Our first ever vacation that has nothing to do with visiting family or job hunting.
We are going to count it as school for the boys though. How can we do that? I'm glad you asked...
First off we are going to Jamestown, VA. It is celebrating its 400th anniversary this year!
I didn't even know about this, but they have actors who play being settlers and you get to go through the town watching them.
That night we will camp out...then off to the Wright Brothers Museum!
Camp again and off to Hatteras Island.
I miss the beach so much. Being a Californian, I grew up with the salty air and the mocking calls of the sea gulls. I cannot wait to share it with my kids!
We'll camp and go back to the Outer Banks the next day. We'll research pirates and collect seashells. After we play in the sand and surf all day, we will take the ferry down and camp.
A relatively short drive from camp will be the Battleship North Carolina. The boys are really excited about this. They can't stop talking and imagining about it.
Either the same day or the next we will go to the Pine Knoll Aquarium. I'm most excited about this part. I love sea life...I used to want to be an oceanographer. Still do in a way.
We may stay another day or head home. (Depends on how much money we have left! LOL.)
So, that is what we'll be doing starting on Monday the 21st! O-dark-early in the morning we will head out. Happy Day!
