Sister Golden Hair (America)

If you've ever thought to yourself, "Man, I sure wish she'd show some more pictures of her family, and less of the places she visits....well, today is your lucky day!"

As you've probably noticed, the beach is a special place for us Okies to visit...but one beach in particular is extra special, because that is our family time.

We visit the Pumpkin Patch and pick out pumpkins for the kids to carve for autumn...

We also hit up the Fall Festival and see the local artisans and crafts.

There are always a few trips up Jockey's Ridge...

......followed by trips to the seashore....

....although the kids have varying degrees of fondness for the water....


Some of us look a little rougher around the edges than others, but we make up one, big, happy family!


The kids dig for shells, go wave-diving, and get soaked!

This is where the kids almost always elect to have their school year photos done.  It's not professional-grade, but still just as good!


At Jockey's Ridge, they also discovered this sand castle...

All grown up (at least, in age), with kids of our own!


Being an airplane family, a trip to the Wright Memorial is a must....


Back to the beach!

This month-long trip is capped off with a night of trick-or-treating, followed by the mandatory candy sorting event.  


From the oldest to the youngest, each child brings something unique to the table.  We're blessed to have the opportunity to spend a huge chunk of quality time with family members who live so far away.....Octobers are sacred!
