Stephens Family Beach Trip Days Two and Three

We're enjoying ourselves here at the beach.
Yesterday the rest of the crew arrived and now the party has really started.
I thought I would share a few of the pictures from the past few days.

We've enjoyed time on the beach.
Walking, reading, talking, you name it.

 Oh.. and finding cool shells too.
 Dinner each night is always fun.
Again, every couple has a night.
 Our house has an elevator too and the kids are obsessed.
 The house is three stories with a big garage with a BIG grill.
That's where a lot of us hang out while the cooking is taking place.
 Sunday was lasagna, Monday was steak, last night was chicken fajitas, I'm not sure what tonight is.
Tomorrow we're teamed up with Sarah and Wade and we're making pork tenderloin.
 On Tuesday Brad and I woke up and ventured out on our own to a nearby town called Beaufort.
There's a Beaufort in South Carolina and North Carolina.
They're pronounced different though.
This one we visited in NC -- is "Bo-Furt"
 Cute little town and the 3rd oldest in NC.
 We ate lunch at the Dock House right on the waterfront.

 I think all the ladies are going back on Friday.
Can't wait to shop a little more.
That's not Brad's thing.
 Afterwards we headed back to house and enjoyed time at the pool.
 Wade and Sarah arrived yesterday afternoon.
 Then, Uncle Dennis and Aunt Barbara.
 Then, time for dinner again.
 I decided to get a few more family photos.
I love this one.
 And, I REALLY.REALLY love this one.
Christmas card if you ask me.
 Aunt Becky arrived yesterday as well.
She's a bit under the weather so we weren't sure she would make it or not but we're glad she did!
 Family DINNER!
 Then we celebrated another birthday.
Cousin Katie's 24th!
 No, worries.. Reed stayed in the other room and watched movies while this celebration went down.
We didn't need another meltdown.
Hope you all are doing well!
I'll be checking your blogs when I can!!

What a great trip. My father-in-law lives at Pine Knoll Shores, and he has a townhouse that we stay in Beaufort for our visits. Love the area. Glad you are having a great time.
