After my mom found out about our miscarriage she insisted that she come visit. While my husband probably could have lived without week long visitors it was such a good experience for me and Teddy. She even brought along my grandma!
On their last full day in North Carolina we decided to take a day trip to the beach. Last year we were still moving in and settling into our rental house at the end of summer and ended up just making one trip to the beach that year…and there was a tropical storm churning off the coast somewhere so it wasn’t as relaxing as it could have been.
This time we decided to go to another nearby beach- Kure Beach. We had a good time and our pasty white skin only got a little sunburned.
We also went to the North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher which was really cool. I’d definitely like to go back sometime…when Teddy is older. Look at how tired and haggard he is sitting on the giant turtle sculpture. I learned the hard way that he’s still too young to skip naps.
We have another beach trip planned for our tiny beach bum in August with my husband’s family. I’m looking forward to staying at a beachside motel this next time so we can come and go as we please- and most importantly the 2 year old can get his naps in!
