Outer Banks

We have spent the last 5 days in North Carolina because Terrence had some work over in Greenville. While we were there we decided to take a day to check out the outer banks and we really enjoyed it. One day was not near enough time to see everything we wanted to see. Our first stop was to a ship called the Elizabeth which had workers aboard who talked and dressed for the time period of the ship. They answered all the kids questions and put up with the kids going back and forth and up and down the stairs. On shore they had replicas set up of the camps the men would set up when they reached shore and workers dressed up their as well. Everything was very hands on and open which made life easier for me because I didn't have to tell the kids to stop touching things every 5 seconds. The museum was awesome and the same hands on kid friendly environment. One of the greatest parts was all the kids were free so we paid 8 dollars for all of us to enjoy this nice place.

oooops this isn't the ship. This was a different ship across the way.
This was the pirate portion of the museum, and every section had clothes and hats for the kids to dress up in.

Scott playing a game called 9 pin or I believe they also called it skittle. He loved it because it was a lot like bowling and he loves bowling.

Thanks for the great tip! I will have to store that info for the next time we get up that way. I love places that are kid friendly.

That looks like fun!! I love kid friendly places. Even our pool with a fun zone in it isn't kid friendly. It more like keep kids out and off of everything.

Sure you will have a chance to go overseas and see your where your dad served. Just dreaming about it makes it more likely to become a reality. I never thought we would go to Isreal and we did this year. Think Big!
