beach vacation 2015

Last week we drove to Wilmington and Wrightsville beach for a short 3 day vacation.  We got lucky with perfect weather and had a wonderful time.  We arrived late Wednesday afternoon and squeezed in an hour at the beach before dinner.  R couldn’t wait to get out her bucket!

Day 2: Beach Day!  R brought her beach toys, even her magnifying glass and flashlight.  She was READY.  First, sandcastles.

We were so thankful to borrow an awesome beach umbrella and chairs from our friends.  Made everything even more enjoyable.

At first not too sure about getting into the ocean…  but she eventually loved standing in the water with the waves washing over her feet.

Beach selfie!



After a full morning of sun, we had had enough and packed up for the day.  The rest of the day was spent eating (fish tacos), napping, and eating again (fresh seafood extravaganza) in Wilmington.  At the end of the day, R declared it the BEST. DAY. EVER.

On our last day, we paid the beach one last visit before leaving after lunch.
