Emerald Isle, North Carolina

We stayed in a beach house during conference weekend and had a blast! This is the Eason family, our new BFF's in NC. The first night we were there they laid out a spread of shrimp, corn cobs, and sausages for dinner. And there were no plates or utensils! Such a fun idea.

While on the beach, I tried out "skimboarding" which is a type of surfing that uses a very small amount of water on the beach. It's kind of tough to pick up but it was fun. Mica put her foot on the board ... and then decided to take pictures instead. :)

On Saturday, we participated in an egg hunt with the Easons. I helped Tony, the dad, hide the eggs. The kids found all the eggs except for one which, to this day, I have no idea where it is. And I'm the one who probably hid it! Finally, the last picture is a far away shot of the house we stayed in. It's a beautiful, large beach house that is right on the waterfront (it's the yellow one). We wish we would have taken more pictures because it was so much fun to stay there. Thank you for having us Eason family!!

What a wonderful getaway! I am so grateful that you have "family" away from family. These are wonderful relationships that you will treasure for a long time.
