Spring Break

We had such a fun Spring Break while Hailey and Kaleb were out of school. It started off with a little mini vacation down to Holly Springs (30 min. away) where my fabulous brother Derek and his amazing wife Amber live. We stayed down there Monday and Tuesday playing and having a good ole time. Derek and Amber's boys are so great and my kids just LOVE playing with them. Thanks Derek and Amber for letting us stay with you:) On Wednesday the kids and I went to the Zoo with Amber and the boys. We have a blast at the Zoo. I think our favorite animals this time was the giraffe and ostrich, they were kinda of chasing each other. On Thursday when Stephen got off work we headed to the BEACH!!! It was FANTASTIC!! We went down to Emerald Isle and played. The weather was 80 degrees and perfect. We spent all day on the beach Friday and Saturday. The kids swam in the freezing cold water and built castles in the sand. Blake really liked the sand, so much so that he couldn't help but put it in his mouth. We also went the aquarium, and they had an egg hunt there where you had to find eggs in the different exhibits (my camera died while there). The kids loved it. Oh, and we played putt-putt one night after dinner. AHHH, I LOVE THE BEACH!! It really was such a great trip, and just a great Spring Break.

Sounds like a lot of fun. Our Spring Break is never fun because it's to cold to go up north so we just stay here.
