The Treatgirl and her family slipped away to the quiet beach of North Topsail, North Carolina last week. It was our first time there and it was lovely! VERY quiet....and the beach was gorgeous! I loved running in the morning along side the shrimp boats and dolphins has they bobbed just off shore. (And trust me...the Treatgirl isn't big on it had to be amazing to get me out there!!!)

Cub barely got dry the whole week......the waves were PER.FECT for being out on his boogie board.

We were so happy to spend the week with my cousin, her husband and little girl. We all had fun doing a tye dye project and the little ones made stepping stones. Also, Scrabble Flash was always out on the table in the kitchen for the adults to play. There was also plenty of time to build sand castles.

And of course they spent hours with the Daddy's and a net collecting little sand crabs. They had zillions of them in this bucket.

You can just see the fishing pier beyond me in the background....I couldn't get over how those fishermen were out there morning, noon and night. Our bedroom was on the the ocean side and I'd peek out there and see them fishing at all hours of the night. CRAZY??!!

Topsail is very tiny....Just a few shops, a Food Lion, and a restaurant. I was searching for a new favorite long sleeve t-shirt, like this one I got at my mom's last year, but even the t-shirt selection was remote :)

Tish and Cub had a fabulous week together....playing and splashing at the beach and the pool.

A last glimpse of the beach before we headed home. It was such a nice week to be with my family all week....just us. Now it's back to friends, activities, work and all the other stuff. Happy summer!!

Your pictures are making me even more eager for our family vacation to arrive! We are headed down to Myrtle Beach, SC soon, but NC beaches are my fav! We visit Beaufort, NC often. If you liked Topsail I bet you'd love it there too. :)
