Hatteras Vacation

We spent the weekend camping at Camp Hatteras on Hatteras Island with our friends April & Jerry and with Karen & Paul. It was the first time camping down there for the babies and myself. We checked in Thursday and while checking in, we noticed some people across from us on top of their campers with cameras. We asked what they were taking pictures of and noticed that in the distance over the Sound there were 2 water spouts. I have never seen a water spout or tornado in person. We actually watched a water spout form. It was pretty neat to witness, but at the same time, it was pretty scary because they were so close. Luckily they just formed, stayed for about 5 minutes and went away. They didn't come close to us at all! Thursday night we did get a really bad storm. After about an hour of constant thunder and lightning, I started to get worried about seeing those water spouts earlier that day. I was afraid that one might form again and come on land, but luckily that didn't happen!

This was the 3rd water spout that formed.

Friday after eating breakfast, we got ready and headed down to the beach. This was the first time the babies have been to a beach. They liked to play in the sand and eat the sand. When we took them down to the water, they didn't like it very much. Kevin took Ashton all the way in the water and Brittany and Caitlyn stayed up at the shore with Allison and I. Once they got comfortable with the waves, they started to enjoy the water a little more. Unfortunately we went down to the beach during their lunch and nap time so they slept pretty much the entire time we were there.

Since the babies decided to take a nap, Aunt Karen and Uncle Paul kept an eye on them while Kevin and I went out and played in the water!

Saturday we decided to go to the indoor pool since we got plenty of sun Friday. We put all of the babies in their floats and they floated around the pool. Our friends Chris and Deanna came down to hang out with everyone on Saturday and brought their nephew with them so he went swimming with the babies in the pool also.

Sunday we had to pack up and go home. We had a fun weekend and hopefully will go back next year! The babies were exhausted after this fun filled weekend. They pretty much slept the whole way home!
