I did it! I took a family portrait in July. And as usual I waited until the very last minute. July 32nd to be exact.
On Sunday we hopped in the car and headed for the Outer Banks. We didn't have a plan. Just load up and drive. We ended up in Manteo. It's a sweet little waterfront town with loads of charm. Art galleries and home decor shops tucked here and there on cobblestone streets. Unfortunately, they were all closed. Since it was a Sunday. And we didn't figure out where the town center was until after 5pm.
But we did manage to find an ice cream shop that was open.
See the pretty lighthouse.
Drink in the beauty of the ocean.
Do a little swinging.
And take our July family photos.
