OBX 2015

In the middle of August, we headed down to the OBX for our 5th year in a row with the same group.  Here is our annual footprint photo:
The first morning started off with a treasure hunt from the OBX Pirates.  The kids were very focused on the guys who were reading the pirate story behind me:
The Felt boys getting ready for the treasure hunt:
The clues led us all throughout the house and eventually out the beach to find the "X" spot where the treasure would be buried:
And they found it - let the digging begin:
Trying to get it out of the sand:
Later in the day, the guys began the boogie-boarding club:
A minor miracle was all of the children in one photo at once.  From left to right:
Kaylee, Autumn, Wyatt, Ian, Shane, Keira, Evan, Eric & Chase
And our full house:
Dads out in the ocean with their kids on their shoulders:
Jumping some very big waves:
Burying their feet in the sand (Keira, Evan & Wyatt):

Evan loves boogie-boarding, though the waves were a little rough when we were there:
And right after this shot, he went under:
The girls went out for a girl's day and came home to all of the kids sitting, unattended, with bottles of alcohol in their hands :)
Family photo shoot.  Not posting our best one here yet as we may end up using it as our Christmas card (because we are very unoriginal :)
 Brothers again:
My baby:
Flying kites at sunset:
Notice to the far right, the very dark clouds.  About 2 minutes after we got all of the kites up in the air, the sky opened up and it started pouring.  Next time, lesson learned that we'll need to check the forecast before going out to fly kites:
More boogie-boarding:
The boys absolutely love to play mini-golf.  We went with the large group one day but then also went with just our family a second time:
A little spike ball on the beach:
And last is my favorite photo of the week, taken by our friend Sean with his underwater camera:
All in all, it was a great week and we are already discussing going back next year!
