Beach Vacation Day 5: Fog

"The sea is His, for He made it; and His hands formed the dry land."
Psalm 95:5

When I went upstairs Wednesday morning to look out at the ocean, I was really surprised to see fog surrounding us!
This was the view from the top deck.  You can just barely see the ocean.

In all the years we've vacation on the OBX we had never seen fog like this!!  (We asked the pool guy, who was cleaning the pool for us, if fog like this happened often and he said yes.)

I prayed the fog would lift, so we could go down to the beach did!!! :)  So we went down to the beach and played around for a little bit.  Once we were inside, and eating lunch, the fog rolled back in.

(These pictures I have of my siblings and cousins running on the deck, was before we went down to the beach.  FYI)

Seth, Eden, Josiah, Lydia, Cadence, and Justus zoomed back and forth on the deck after breakfast, racing, or just having fun! 

Seth was the announcer.

Eden and Cadence taking a break for a picture!

Throughout the week Eden really loved playing with Cadence and Justus.  They became great playmates!

Don't ask about Lydia's outfit...

I think either Lydia got this on herself or Eden helped her; either way it was cute! :)

See the fog in the background?  It was pretty thick.

Eden's new sunglasses.
(You can see me in the reflection on the glasses, if you look :)

While the little ones were running up and down the deck, they found this bug.

So, that was our 2nd weird bug of the week!


Daddy and Uncle Kevin returned from a very fruitful day, around 4-5 P.M.  They then cooked up the hamburgers for our dinner that night.

The listing for our beach house said we had a grill, but we weren't quite expecting this type of grill! 

While they cooked the meat, most of us were outside playing in the sand in the front of the house, finishing up dinner, or making dessert! :)

Our house! :)

Lydia playing in the sand.

Can anyone find the children??? :)
(This was under our house where the outside shower was)

Paw-paw checking the burgers as Caleb and Seth look on.

As you can see from the above picture, the fog never really went away.

Getting dinner straight.

Lydia playing with some goggles she found, as we waited for dinner to be ready!

Aunt Mae-Mae's absolutely delicious macaroni and cheese.

Her mac 'n cheese has become a family favorite for most of us!  It's so yummy!!!

Hamburgers and hotdogs cooked to perfection by the men in the family! :)

After our yummy dinner, some of us went out and threw moldy bread to the seagulls.

For some reason, blogger decided to flip this picture.  It was supposed to be horizontal but it's vertical now...

Lexi took this picture and the one below.
(I take awhile to eat my food, so I was in the middle of eating when they started feeding the gulls.  After a few pictures I wanted to eat before my food froze so Lexi took over the photography! :)

Dessert that night was Paw-paw and Na-naw's ice cream.  (We had made our ice cream a night or so before.)
Cadence helping stir.

Delighting in Jesus,
