An End...

...To Spring Break. The kids went back to school today. Surprisingly, I was a little sad. We had such a good time over Spring Break. We spent the whole week in Wilmington, N.C. If you ever get the chance, you have to visit. Of course, it was easy for us because we live in Wilmington.



We had dinner at Indochine one night and had a blast! We sat outside in our own private hut and stuffed ourselves with fabulous Thai & Vietnamese food. I highly recommend a meal here. We felt like we were in Disney World. The best part? We were only 3 minutes from home.

Add ImageFriday was a beautiful day and we headed out on the boat.

The weather could not have been better.


Everyone loved it. First boat ride of the summer.

Then we parked the boat at the Dockside and had lunch on the waterway. My shrimp burger was delicious!! Life is good in Wilmington. I know it looks like Butterball's sweatshirt says "Cay". It really says "Clay" and that's what you get when you're the third child, hand-me-downs. But you've got to admit it looks cute with his little shorts.

We had lunch with family and a couple of Easter Egg Hunts.


All in all it was a great Spring Break and I got to sleep in my own bed every night!!!


One final picture. Today is not only the end of Spring Break, it is also my anniversary. Number 13. Traditional gift for year 13 is lace. Let me take a moment to say "No thank you!" Also, no poems. They make me feel ill. Life is good and that is gift enough. (Plus you already bought me that Bakelite bracelet I wanted) Happy Anniversary Bill!!!

  5. What a great Spring Break and a beautiful family, Sissy! My daughter's Spring Break just started Friday and we're having a staycation here in Nashville the first part of the week before we head to Atlanta to the American Girl Doll store on Friday (and then to Scott's Antique Market on Saturday - shh, just don't tell my daughter).

    Happy Anniversary!! We're going to celebrate number 13 in July, and I'm totally with you on the lace thing (and the poetry thing)!

  8. Happy Anniversary!! Life IS good in Wilmington- making me the tiniest bit jealous!! Everyone looks so happy. Why do we have different spring breaks? We usually have the same one. We're off to the beach now, since it is not 10 minutes away. Lucky girl!! xo
