A fun fall beach weekend

We spent this past weekend in Holden Beach, NC, with Kevin's parents and our niece. We had a great time and the boys were in heaven having Michaela all to themselves this weekend! I'll let the pictures do most of the talking.

We drove up after work Friday night. Kaden slept most of the way and K.C. filled our ears with many stories. The boys are at such a fun age now. I love having conversations with them!

We woke up Saturday and spent the morning on the boat. The boys each caught a fish.

The Festival By the Sea was going on, so we went there for lunch. The kids had a great time playing on all the inflatables.

When we got back to the beach house, my MIL watched all the kids and my FIL, Kevin, and I went back on the boat to fish. We didn't have any luck, but we had a great time. When we got back, the kids all got to go on a boat ride and then we got ready to go out to dinner.

Sunday was similar. After breakfast (my FIL's good breakfasts spoil me when we're traveling together!), Kevin and I rode out to fish. When we got back, we went to lunch, then packed up and drove home.

It was a quick trip, but a fun one!



Kaden is happiest with snacks!





Cousins!


Even though we worked and the kids had school Friday, it felt like the weekend started on Thursday. It was  my dad's birthday. We went out to dinner at his favorite Mexican restaurant and then everyone came back to our house for cake and ice cream.





 
K.C.'s card for Hot Rod had a picture he drew of him driving his mule on the farm.



 Kaden serenaded us on the accordion BeBe gave him.

 My grandma makes the best cakes! Caramel decorated in chocolate icing, all homemade of course.



My sweet parents!
