Two Meatballs: Fort Macon-Me Crazy!!!

Did you guys know that I love the beach!?!  And my family?!? Annnd adventures!?!  #duh Gahhhhh, I really needed this vacation.  For the first time ever, I took 2 weeks off of work with my family and rented a little getaway at our favorite place in Salter Path, NC.  I love going to the beach in the fall and especially with these fun people!!!  Look at this happy bunch…

After lots of coffee trips to our favorite spot, 4J’s we decided that the cabin fever had taken over. #igot99problemsandtheyareallrain

Unfortunately for most of the rainy days we ate constantly #ohnotheweighin and hibernated…but on this magical day we had a brilliant idea and knew we had to get out of the house, the Beards trekked it out to Fort Macon…the living funnest historically rich favorite pastime of ours!
