Almost Heaven, OBX.

Every other summer, the Dickson family approaches a heaven-like state in the beautiful Outer Banks of North Carolina. This year's trip was my first time going in 6 years, and it was spectacular.

Those in attendance:


twins
Gramblog
Gardenerblog
great grandkids
Ellery
people

A few things that we did:


wading
waves
sand
mmmm
duck duck goose
dusk
boogie
tipping
handsome
sleeping
reading

Ongoing Parcheesi and pool tournaments throughout the week, the traditional talent show (Dana's magic trick gets me every time!), delicious dinners every night, the Newlywed game and other fun activities, inspirational morning devotionals, late night hot tubbing, and an unforgettable mothers' advice panel made OBX 2009 pure heaven.

GREAT post. And I'm in love with the picture you took of Elle...every time I see her name, "Ellery Page" I love it even more. :) Glad we could play for a week...too bad we can't do that more often...

In fact, I hope it's okay that I steal the picture. :)

My brother and his wife love vacationing in OBX...I'm gonna have to head out there one day.

Did you really like 'Their Eyes Were Watching God?' That book made me so angry!

Anyway, in regards to your older posts, I'm SO glad Rick is home and I'm definitely loving your hair these days:)
