Fort Fisher Aquarium and Wrightsville Beach

On our four day weekend we decided to go to Fort Fisher Aquarium and Wrightsville Beach.

It wasn’t that far of a drive and I can now see us going to the beach quite frequently, especially now that Jeffy isn’t working on his teaching course for Dubai!  The aquarium looked like it was going to be a leisurely stroll through…but of course upon our entering, a whole school of kids showed up. What? I thought for sure schools would be gone by then, not just arriving! So, we didn’t get to see all that we wanted to in our time there, but it was still a good time. My mom got us a membership so we can go back there and to the other aquariums in the area anytime!

I have a ton of pictures…

It was a chilly day when we left the house in the morning. I thought it perfect temperature for a little sweatshirt and such… Of course, Lauren had wanted to wear a bathing suit and I didn’t think she would even be going in the water since it was chilly. Ya…right…

See that wave behind Kyle??  Yeah well…he didn’t.  Since he was already wet…him and Lauren took advantage of it. 😛

Yeah, they were both soaked from head to toe. And had to drive home like that because they didn’t bring other clothes to change into. Ahh, gotta love that! 😉
