Seaside Beach Vacation Rewind…Part II


June 4, 2012

Sorry it took me so long, but I am back for round two of our wonderful beac vacation recap. Here’s how the rest of our week played out…
-our friends arrived, so we stayed out at the beach all day…playing bocce, beach golf, and spending loads of time catching up! Too much fun.

-spent the morning at the beach, then got the food and setup ready for the WELCOME PARTY! spent time catching up with everyone in town for the wedding!

-last official beach day so we stayed out until they practically kicked us out of the chairs!
-had our best dinner of the week at our favorite shack, Red Bar…amazing crab cakes and grouper

-relaxed all morning at the house and doing a bit of shopping at Deja Vu before heading to the wedding of Julie and Jon, which was simply gorgeous
-headed to the reception at Alys Beach and spent the evening reliving our glory days with our best friends before the final fun night out at Bud and Alleys

the gorgeous bride and groom during their first dance

All in all…amazing vacation, though I can’t lie-my friend Meghan said it best: it’s not really a vacation, it’s a change of location with so much stuff to entertain Caroline and keep her happy. Mimi and Pappy were lifesavers on many occasions and having our friends there too was just icing on the cake, not to mention Julie and Jon’s wedding was absolutely gorgeous. I may just have to build a sandlot and get a baby pool put up in our backyard to make due since I am already having withdrawals ;).

  1. What a great vacation and a beautiful wedding to boot.

    As Caroline is getting older … I really can say, I think she is looking just like her mother!

    Lastly, it's a good thing you don't live in Charlotte, because you'd have to padlock your closet to keep me from raiding it each weekend! 😉
