Beach Week!

We had an awesome beach week this year. We normally go to Litchfield or Pawley's Island or Sunset Beach. GREAT beaches all...but having lived in Wilmington for three years we decided to go back and do a Wrightsville Beach vacay. Our house was a stone's throw away from the beach...we could see the water from the porch. It was an OLD house. Built in the 1920's. I loved sitting on the front porch and watching the surfers go out to the beach early before work. It was so...beachy!
For the first time EVER we didn't take a sitter with us to the beach. At the last minute we invited a friend for BabyBoy. It worked out perfectly because BabyBoy, friend, and BabyGirl all get along great. It was better than a sitter!
We spent lazy days at the beach, shopped, scootered to the ice cream shop after dinner...it was bliss. I did have an evening that included entirely too much a-a-a-a-cohol. The following day I stayed in bed until 7pm. Yes...you red correctly. 7pm. Clearly, Mrs. Sippycups can no longer party like it's 1999. All good. Dr. Daddy was THE MAN and didn't give me a hard time AT ALL. Mommy was TIRED.
The kids did shell art, beading, played countless hours of Wii and DS. YES...I am that bad of a Mom :).
A few pictures from our trip...
