We stayed at Jenna's mom's house. It is second row, so we were any easy walk to the beach. We got there around 2:00 on Friday afternoon. It took us about 5 hours to get there from Charlotte. We got into our swimsuits and headed straight out to the beach! Ellison really had a blast. She was a huge fan of eating sand...and seashells! I can't even count the number of times I had my fingers in her mouth to fish out shells. She's so fast! We had a plastic kiddie pool out on the beach that we filled with ocean water. It was a lifesaver for us because Ellison was very into it and loved splashing around. It was a great way for us to keep her contained for a while! After some time on the beach, we got cleaned up (in the outdoor shower which I really wish I could pull off at my house in Charlotte!), and spent some time playing and taking wagon rides. Early to bed for the kiddies and a little dinner, drinks, and quality time for the adults!
Sunday was more of the same...beach, naps, good food, pool, walks, and great company. We ended the evening with a treat from the ice cream truck! The weekend went too fast. We are already looking forward to next year's beach trip! We even talked about a fall/winter trip so it's not so far away!
Thank you to Matt, Jenna, Landon, and Lola for inviting us! We love you!
