From Instagram: My people. <3 We spent this week in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. While it wasn't exactly a perfect vacation - poor Sean got hit again with the stomach bug that just won't quit and the baby ended up with croup - I loved being here at this time of year. It was just…

From Instagram: Oh my heart. I feel like we spend more time in the ER or with specialists than the average family, and I haven't figured out if it's because we're a larger-than-average family or just because we're accident prone!
