Found these frogs in different spots over the past couple of days. Thanks mom for calling me when the tree frog showed up. I don't know what kind of frog the red colored one is, but he is unique none the less and had to photograph him. They are really neat amphibians. I know that sounds crazy but after owning them, I must say they are really cool little critters.

My Crazy Life!

Have many pictures to still upload. Hopefully will get them done this weekend. Life is so busy lately and by the time I get home I don't feel like getting on my computer! Hopefully soon though. I put a new camera on layaway. A Canon EOS 40d. I feel like a kid at Christmas! Can't wait to get it paid off so I can play=) Hope all is well and hope you all have a blessed day!

This picture is of the sun coming up on the day we were leaving. It is amazing! Thanks for looking.

More pics!

This top picture was taking at the Wright Brothers Memorial in Kitty Hawk. Was neat to see some of the first planes they built together and tried to fly. If you are ever in the area check it out.

Ok so here are some more pictures from the beach. Sorry it took so long, but I hope you enjoy them. The lighthouse is Bodie Island Lighthouse in Nags Head. It is breathtaking in person. The one of "Captain Haeley" is when we took a fishing boat out and she drove for us!

Been Busy!

Had a lot going on the past couple of days. I have a ton of more pictures to upload and will hopefully be able to do so with in the next couple of days. Have some great sunrise shots from the beach I want to share. If only I could be battery powered and have the energy to work all day and night I may then be able to catch up. =) Hope all is well and have a blessed day!

More beach pics!

This is the statue of Queen Elizabeth that is in the middle of the Elizabethan Garden. It was amazing to see in person.

I have many more pictures to post but it takes a while so I will upload more in the next few days.


I will post some more pictures later. My internet is driving me CRAZY! So as soon as I get it straight I will post the rest!

Back from the beach!

Back home! Well we had a great vacation. Except for the rain on Wednesday and Friday. That made it really hard to do things especially with two kids in tow. We got to see a lot of neat things and I took over 400 pictures! I really enjoy visiting new places and seeing all of the attractions that are there to see. We went to the Elizabethan Gardens on Roanoke Island which was amazing! I have plenty of pictures to share. The garden was made to commemorate the memory of the first English colony that settled on the island. The first English child that was born in America was born on this island. They have a HUGE statue of Queen Elizabeth made out of brass in the middle of the garden which is unbelievable to see in person. They have a huge fountain with many statues surrounding it and amazing landscaping. If you are ever in the Outer Banks, you must take the trip to Roanoke Island and check out the amazing sights. We also went out on a boat on a fishing trip, well we caught more sting rays then fish, which was crazy! So needless to say the fishing trip was quite an adventure. Also I got some good pictures of the waves. Hurricane Bertha was swirling in the Atlantic and was bringing about swells of water around 5 to 6 feet about normal. It completely washed out one of the beaches that we had been driving on making the beach uninhabitable by people because of getting vehicles stuck. So it was neat to see but not much fun to deal with. My kids had an absolute ball. Haeley my youngest had quite an adventure as this was her first trip to the beach. She wasn't big on the roaring water, but the sand was quite an adventure for her. Serena just loves the beach. She doesn't care about anything else but playing in the water and the sand. She would live there if it was possible. So I hope everyone has enjoyed their summer and thanks for taking the time to check out my blog!
