to the beach and back

Poolside in Charlotte.

Shades on and ready for Day 1 at Ocean Isle Beach.

Can you dig it, fool?

Spectacular lightning storm in the evening.
It only rained once the whole week!

Morning run along the shore.

Beach boys.

Catch du Jour.

Chowing down on the perfect size cob.

Foster could not join us at the beach,
but we got our fix with Fin at the Ocean Isle Fishing Center.

After dinner at the Giggling Mackerel.

Patriotism at its finest.

4th of July Parade with cousins, Lexi and Juli.

Admiring the golf cart floats in the parade.

Stars and stripes family photo.

Hamilton proudly waving his miniature flag to all the passers by.

Patriotic beachwear model.

Watching the waves with Mama.

Who knows how many miles this truck saw in the sand!

Bocce Ball fanatics.

Wish we could stay here all summer!

Daddy: 10 stitches after landing on an oyster bed in the canal.
Hamilton: Boo-boos from beach shoes.

Soaking up our last day at the beach.

We stopped on the Foothills Parkway to take in
the scenic view on the way to Gatlinburg, TN.

Watching the diver feed the fish at Ripley's Aquarium.

Petting a horseshoe crab.

Waving at the penguins.

Debating which dance move to debut
at Eric and Jordan's wedding in Martin, TN.

Taking a breather at the hottest wedding we've ever attended.

Reunited and it feels so good!

Sitting on top of Foster has to be a
close second to sitting on the beach!
