Memorial Day Weekend

For Memorial Day weekend both Travis and I had a long weekend. Score. We were able to head to the St. Lawrence River for a little rest and relaxation. We stayed with my cousins Danny, Brooke, and Julia at my Aunt Kathy's beautiful new "camp", if you could even call it that, right on the River. 

Travis played some golf with the family, I did a little work, and we played some trivial pursuit with the cousins. It was a perfect weekend! Well, minus all the studying and assignments I had. 

We also made a little time for dinner at the Gran View and a family party on Sunday.

Outer Banks, NC

After successfully completing my first semester of PA school (with a 3.8 if I don't mind adding) I had a week vacation to look forward to. We have been trying to plan little getaways for each break because this is only uninterrupted time we have together. While Travis comes up to visit while I am in school it is usually quick and most of the time I have so much work to do. So with the built in breaks from school, we try and pack as much in as possible. 

For May break we wanted to head somewhere warm and a place we had never been before. We decided on the Outer Banks, North Carolina. It ended up being the perfect time to go, the weather was beautiful and we felt like the only ones there. We found a perfect place in Duck, NC called the Sanderling Resort and Spa. The only downside going during the "off season" was the beach bar and pool were closed. Oh well, not a big deal. We relaxed on the beach each day, enjoyed a little Tufte cocktail hour around around 5, and then showered up and went out to dinner. Sounds a little like our daily honeymoon schedule, which I have absolutely no problem with. On the last day we drove down the island and made stops along the way at the Bodie and Cape Hatteras Light Lighthouses. 

Here are some of my favorite pictures...
