We headed out to the beach this year for a few days. We skipped going last year, opting instead for Great Wolf Lodge. The girls had been asking for a while when we were going back, so I knew it would be on the agenda for this summer.
Everyone was up early most days - so I would take the girls out first thing to gather shells at sunrise.
Then we'd head out to the beach for sand castles, burying, and a little bit of swimming.
The afternoon included crafts and/or mini golf.
Then we'd walk on the beach at sunset and play in the tidepools.
We finished up our stay with a visit to the NC Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores.
