Its a Great Day {To Turn 6}

It is still unbelievable to me that my baby girl who turned our world on its head is six years old.  It is true that time stops for no one and it does seem to get faster each year.

Roxy picked her theme again this year.  INSIDE OUT.  I loved the idea, but I worked from what I found out about it from Roxy because I missed the movie day with Mongo and Naye.  I still have yet to see it, but am anxiously awaiting its DVD release in November.

It was a super fun day filled with lots of emotion, cake, candy and a few of Chinese princesses.

First Day of First Grade

Not only was Roxy set to begin first grade this year, but she had to switch to a bigger school, too.  I was worried that she would be upset, but she proved me wrong.

Can you tell how excited she is?

Trip for Two

We just got back from a three day trip to the Outer Banks and it was a blast!

Russ' best friend and his fiancee planned a wedding on the beach in Nags Head and since Russ was the best man, we decided to add a couple days and make a mini-vacation out of it.

After a gorgeous beach wedding, we were up for two days of great friends, great food, and lots of fun!



We started Sunday morning by catching a gorgeous sunrise over the ocean and walking the beach collecting shells for Roxy, who was home hanging with Mongo, Naye and Gigi while we were gone.

Russ and I joined up with the newlyweds and headed to Duck to shop, lunch and visit the Currituck Lighthouse.

Lunch at The Blue Point
 


The next day, we strolled the beach at sunrise and visited Duck Donuts to start the day off, a little shopping for me, beach time for Russ, and then we met up with the newlyweds for dinner and music before we headed home the next day.


Dinner and drinks at Blue Water Grill & Raw Bar while listening to Jessie Taylor, who was also Jessica and Rob's wedding musician.  
We absolutely hated to leave, but were glad to be home, too.  This little face was the best part:



If you're headed to the Outer Banks area, we strongly suggest these places:

American Pie - Best pizza EVER!
Blue Point Bar & Grill
Lucky 12 Tavern
Duck Donuts
Peppercorns
Blue Water Grill & Raw Bar
Booty Treats
