NC OBX (National Historic Site, Natl Memorial, Natl Seashore, and State Park)

Over the weekend we enjoyed a nice getaway to the Outer Banks (OBX)! The kids and I had never been (gasp) so we loved checking it off the list and we always love being at our favorite place (the ocean!). We were so grateful Gramma could get away with us. We are all such beach …

Yellowstone – Mammoth Hot Springs, Grizzly Discovery Center, and Elk bugles!!!

After a few days of driving many hours in the park, we decided to take a morning off and go to the Grizzly & Wolf Discovery Center in West Yellowstone. We haven't seen any bears in the wild yet so this was a good "cheat" for us. Most of these bears were orphaned when their …
