After spending an awesome week at the beach in Surf City, NC we are home. We rented a house right on the beach with Chris' parents, Ryan and Becca, and Ryan's mom and his sister. I am in the process of uploading 400+ photos onto my computer (can't wait to see them!), so in the meantime I'll hit some of the highlights of our beach week:

-being right on the ocean, which meant listening to the ocean all the time and an awesome view!
-searching for shells on the beach
-searching for sharks teeth...and actually finding them!
-lots of yummy food!
-walks on the beach
-practically living in our swimsuits
-no make up for a week
-great beach tans....and no sunburns (we got a little red on Thursday, but it never actually turned into a full blown sunburn)
-reading on the beach (I finished 4 1/2 books)
-exploring the souvenir shops
-turtle fudge from one of the shops - incredible!
-banana pudding ice cream from a local ice cream shop - really yummy!
- watching the sunset over the intercoastal waterway
-driving up and down the island, looking at houses, and dreaming about owning one
-seeing dolphins
-watching the pelicans
-avoiding Tropical Storm Cristobal on the first day!
-meeting new friends on the beach
-sweet tea
-spending time with family
-RELAXING for a whole week - no appointments, no baseball games, no tumbling, no errands to was perfect!
-taking lots and lots of photos on the beach
-boogie boarding and body surfing in the waves

Sounds like you had a great time. I wondered how much Cristobal interfered with your fun, and I'm glad it wasn't too bad. Hope you got all rested. Sorry we missed you at our house.
