Last week our Sonicare toothbrushes traveled with us to Outer Banks, North Carolina. No major injuries this year, but we did get off to a rocky start after my youngest son got sick at breakfast right after we left, requiring us to backtrack home for a bath and change of clothes. Then we ended up spending our first night sleeping in our Yukon in a Walmart parking lot because there weren't any hotel rooms in Kitty Hawk.
We finally made it to our beach house the next day exhausted but ready for fun, only to have Mandi and her family lose their rear bumper on the 4x4 beach -- that was quite a sight! But we ended up having a fabulous time swimming, climbing the Currituck Beach Lighthouse (WHAT were we thinking with nine kids between us?!?), and visiting the Wright Brothers National Memorial.
Our Sonicare brushes performed brilliantly throughout the trip. I left the chargers at home because I wanted to test the longevity of a single charge, so I was a little nervous that they'd be nearly dead by the time we got home. However, I was delighted to see that they were still going strong as our trip neared its end!
What a treat it was be able to look out the window while brushing our teeth and see this every morning:
