Spring Break was so much fun this year! I don’t know if it’s because the weather was warm and it actually felt like spring break or if we were just needing a break so badly that made it great! Probably a little of both. :)
Nie-Nie & Kels took the oldest grands to the beach on Monday. AB was excited to get to join them and had such a fun time. They ate candy and junk and went shopping for prizes, saw a movie, played in the ocean, swam in the pool and stayed up late both nights.
Thursday morning, we hit the beach as soon as everyone was up and suncreened. We beached all morning, had ice cream from the ice cream truck, enjoyed the pool in the afternoon and all got a nap in before dinner.
We had dinner at the Roadhouse that night and then went down to the boardwalk. I was hoping to let the kids ride the ferris wheel, but after paying our $10.00 to park, unloading everyone and waiting in line for tickets, we found out the ferris wheel wasn’t running that night. Nice. At least we ended the night with hot Krispy Kremes. Everything is better at the beach, ESPECIALLY hot doughnuts. It was the perfect beach day and the best part – we woke up Friday to do it all over again!
AB & Emma had the best time playing in the waves – they’d play for a while, then come up to where we were sitting and play in the sand for a while, then get back in the ocean.
After another fun in the sun day, Crystal & Emma packed up and headed home. We had such a great time with them and were so glad they could come.
Sunday we walked down to the pier for breakfast. Tucker napped, while I packed us up and DW took the girls to the pool. We hated saying good-bye to the beach, but summer hasn’t even started yet, so I’m sure we’ll see plenty of it over the next few months.
Such a GREAT Spring Break! (& now we’re SERIOUSLY counting down the days until school is OUT!)
