End of Summer Beach Week...
As our Outer Banks week came to an end back in June we realized there was still so much summer left and felt a little sad that our beach week had already come and gone. So we did the only logical thing and piggybacked on my family's Myrtle Beach trip by booking another week at Ocean Lakes for the end of August.
We loved having the trip to look forward to and Adam loved that he'd be spending a week at the beach with Grandma, Grandpa, Uncle Mark, Aunt Kathleen & Olivia - and of course an extra visit with Don & Mae Mae!
Ocean Lakes was surprisingly quiet as schools in North Carolina and South Carolina had resumed the week before so we were able to score a great ocean front site with the easiest beach access we've ever had.
As a bonus, my colleague who grew up going to Ocean Lakes with his family just happened to book his own extra beach week for the exact same week, so we had even more people to spend time with on the beach. Adam and Carter were fast friends, with Carter referring to Adam as her boyfriend by day two. She is quite the southern belle - Adam never stood a chance! :)
While we spent a lot of time at the campground we spent most mornings over at the house my family rented for the week. They had a wonderful view and a great deck with a swing - relaxation at it's best! Adam and Olivia of course loved all the time playing in the ocean together and Uncle Mark was in heaven getting to help build sandcastles - well, mostly just digging holes, either way, it was memory making at it's best.
To top it all off, we had our September Birthday Club party and the ice cream was literally the icing on the cake. ;)
Sun, sand, camp fires, family, friends, and a "little" summer romance. XOXO
