Welcome to North Carolina and the beach!

We're in North Carolina! Sean came to sell for a few weeks and Jackson and I tagged along for a vacation. So far we love it here. Wilmington is a charming little city near the beach. It reminds me a lot of Charleston, SC, which is near and dear to my heart. We love the South!

We've been to the beach nearly every day. Jackson loves it and I am so glad. I let him play in the surf and he enjoys trying to eat sand and chewing on shells. The beaches here are so nice! They aren't overly crowded since it is a smaller city, but they are maintained really well. Very clean and a good family-friendly environment. The water is also warm which is a bonus.

My summer children: Blake, Hallie and Brinklie. I have watched these kids grow up right before my very eyes!


A good way to finish out a great summer :)

Fun! I wish I was on a beach somewhere.....unfortunately there are no beaches in Iowa. Jackson has the most adorable dimples, I love them!

My family used to rent a beach house just south of Wilmington (Surf City) every summer! I love it down there! I'm so jealous!

Way too much fun! I just watched Nights of Rodanthe last night and I told Cory I wanted to go there! So I am jealous that you are down there! Well, I hope you have a great couple of weeks!
