I am one lucky girl:) To celebrate Mother’s Day this year we made the short 1 1/2 hour trip to Emerald Isle for the weekend. ( I so appreciate how convenient it is to live so close to the beach!) Our Saturday was spent with our sweet friends the Braxton’s on the beach soaking up the sun. Unfortunately we didn’t get too many pics that day because we were so busy chasing kids:) But my girl’s sure did love their 10 month old Knox and I loved getting to have his momma Jordan to hang out with:)
Day 2 ~ Aka~ Mother’s Day was awesome. We spent it playing with the kids on the beach near fort macon and relaxing just the 5 of us. It truly was a perfect Mother’s Day. Of course Hailey, who has been studying the pirate Blackbeard, was filling us in on all kinds of fun trivia. Like that Blackbeard’s house, the Hammock house, is a few miles away in Beaufort and that his ship is, according to Hailey, underwater 12 miles off the coast at fort macon. I love that she is really into history like her momma:)
We saw lots of fins in the water which were, of course, dolphins. Though you never know on the NC coast!. Tons were out Mother’s day, jumping all around near shore. It was so much fun for the girls to watch! And the subject of fins brings us to our all time favorite week of summer~~~~ SHark week~~~. Yes, we know we have a couple of months to wait, but we are shark fanatics here and we anxiously await it every summer. And we are getting so close to summer! Just a few short weeks of school left for the girls and then off to Myrtle beach for our summer vacation! Can you tell I’m getting just a little bit excited for summer…. until then here are our pics from our beach Mother’s Day!
