Oak Island Beach Getaway!


On July 10th we headed out for the beach!!  Oak Island is the beach we grew up going to and even though we hated it as teens b/c there was NOTHING to do, I absolutely love it now! You truly enjoy the beach for the beach!!  No commercialism, just salt water, fishing, sand castles, sun bathing, reading under an umbrella, and walks on the beach.  (oh yeah, and Dairy Queen!)  I was so  excited to get away but I knew the 4 days would fly by so I had to savor every moment.  We had a great time, but like i knew, it was just too fast! 

Here is Maddox getting ready to see the beach and ocean.  This was not his first time on the beach, he was 3 1/2 months the first time. 


Radio Flyer Wagons come in very handy!!

Ok, so this is his true first reaction.  He did not like his feet in the sand! Ha!


It didn’t take him long to warm up to it!


Here goes the hand to explore and check it out!

Dairy Queen Time, Chris and Maddox are waiting in the line!


Day 3


My mom got this book for Chris (really for Maddox) in Southport.  He does not in any way eat tomatoes (except for ketchup).


Heading to the beach again!!  Please excuse  the no makeup look!

This is my favorite pic!  I love this look on his sweet face!


Chris and I got to go on a date night!!  We went into Southport and ate at PJ’s.  Then we went to the waterfront park and sat in the swing, looked out over the water and got to see Dolphins!!  If you look really close you can see a fin in the picture.

Look at all the seagulls!!


My hot date!!  When we left Southport we went to the movies and watched Grown Ups, it was funny!  That was the first time I have got to go to the movies in ages!!



On Tuesday, Chris got up early and went fishing and I hung out on the beach for a couple more hours and then we headed back to L-town!!  Great getaway!
