I'll admit it... today, I'm sulking because it's all over.  We had such fun time at Ocean Isle with friends!  It was Juliet's first time at the beach and we loved taking her to experience another first.  
She wasn't a fan of the water... She'd rather stay on her sand pallet with her toys.  
She trembled all over watching the waves and "pouty lipped" when we put her toes in the water for the first time.  Sitting under the umbrella in the shade with her buddy-friend, Jackson, was more her jam.  

 Sharing pink starfish and little red boats.

The ocean waves served as our real life sound machine.
She fell asleep as soon as we got there, both days.  

Naps after being in the sun all day are the best! 
(She's wearing her monogrammed MudPie bloomers from Auntie Amber.)

The last night in Ocean Isle we went to the pier and out for dinner as well as one last walk on the beach.  I love all the pictures we captured on the water.  I even snapped a couple of Juliet after she was rescued by Daddy from the scary wet stuff!  

 We came home to a neighborhood covered in red, white, and blue- thanks to our HOA- everyone had their flags waving, and sashes hanging from their balconies.  We ended our day with hamburgers and sea mud face masks.   It's all just mere memories now, but definitely one for the books!
