Spring Break 2015

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.

On Wednesday morning, Mamie, Tucker & I headed that way, too! IMG_9386

We enjoyed some pool time that afternoon, while waiting on AB’s buddy, Emma and her mom to get there.IMG_9457

We all had dinner together at Red Robin before Nie-Nie, Kels, Elliot, Tay & Warren all headed back home. IMG_9452

AB was so excited to be staying the rest of the week at the beach and even more excited to have Emma with us! IMG_9791


Thursday morning, we hit the beach as soon as everyone was up and suncreened.DSC_1546 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. DSC_1505DSCN6960DSCN6988DSCN7025IMG_9487DSCN7014DSCN7036

DSC_1222We had dinner at the Roadhouse that night and then went down to the boardwalk.IMG_9555 IMG_9568I 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!IMG_9504

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.


IMG_9693Mames was scared of the ocean this trip. She stuck to playing in the sand! IMG_9667IMG_9731


Tucker loved everything! IMG_9613 He watched the waves and birds and the girls playing. He ate half his body weight in sand and was the easiest baby the whole trip. DSC_1291He napped every day under the umbrella. IMG_9679



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.

The rest of the weekend was family time! IMG_9881DSC_1234DW got there around 8:00 that night, bearing ice cream surprises. :)

Tucker enjoyed the view and ice cream with Daddy that night. IMG_9824

We followed our normal beach routine… beach, pool, naps. DSC_1288DSC_1316DSC_1325DSC_1398DSC_1489



That evening, we tried a different restaurant for dinner and really enjoyed it. DSC_1557

Sunday we walked down to the pier for breakfast. IMG_9977IMG_9989IMG_9991Tucker napped, while I packed us up and DW took the girls to the pool. IMG_9999We 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. DSCN7106

Such a GREAT Spring Break! (& now we’re SERIOUSLY counting down the days until school is OUT!)
