The Family Beach Trip

We were lucky enough to get to spend a week with Robyn’s family on Topsail Island. Oh what a week it was. I don’t think I have heard my boy laugh so much as he did this week. He loved playing, chasing, laughing and imitating his four older cousins and helping deliver pacifiers and toys to his one younger cousin as well. He played hard on the beach, stayed up late, saw sea turtles and shrimp boats and even his first real fireworks! It was so much fun watching him soak in all the experiences.
On a personal note, after three days of persistence and one trip to the in-house nurse (Briar) to seal up a nasty cut, I finally became a surfer! Although there are no images to prove it, my wife was laughing and my son was clapping as I stood up for the first time and ripped one.
We took a ridiculous amount of pictures, so I’m just including a couple of favorites and a slide show.

Setting up the compound took a little time.

There were dolphins this morning too!
