For Memorial weekend, our family headed down to Topsail Island, NC to enjoy some sun, sand and relaxation with our friends the Anderssons and the Emericks.
Brendan even got to try out boogie boarding, thanks to Patric. He was freaking out at first and didn’t want to get on but I forced him to and once he was going, he loved it. Patric was awesome to pull him around for a several minutes.
While Alex was being grumpy, Brendan was off happily collecting sea shells. I think we brought home about 20 pounds of shells.
Brendan showed off some butt-crack this weekend too. The saddest part was he got sun burned on the top of his butt since I didn’t apply sunscreen there. I didn’t realize how big his swim trunks were on him- whoops! He was a good sport about it though.
He’d see a wave approaching and start to get freaked out. When the water actually hit him, he’d be okay for a second and then…
Out came the tears and screams. Poor baby. He really did NOT like being in the water.
Alex did, however, enjoy eating sand.
At least both of my boys enjoyed the sand!
It was such an awesome weekend and it was hard to leave. Brendan was actually in tears saying he didn’t want to leave “his” beach house while we packed up. I’m glad that we had the chance to go- thanks Sasha for planning everything, and thanks to everyone else for the good company, the good food, the good laughs, and the good memories. Who wants to go back next month?
