Wrightsville Beach 2014

by Ally Harding, 7:00 AM
I am finally home for good! After two beach trips back to back I'm exhausted! I need a vacation from my vacation! Our second trip was Wrightsville Beach, NC. My family has started a yearly tradition of going there for one week during the summer. We have family from all over staying in houses as well. We have family come from Virginia, North Carolina, Connecticut, even Norway and Sweden! So it's always a blast. I had to leave a few days early because I can't take two weeks off from work but the rest of my family is there till Friday. 

Scenes from our trip:

Dance party on the first night. My crazy uncles breaking it down.

My mom teaching us how to do the Gangsta Lean (She's going to kill me!)

Theo and I on the deck enjoying some Westbrook Gose's. One thing I love about the beach house is no one keeps track of the time. It's always beer thirty!

One of the many family dinners together with everyone. 

My cousin Emma and I. Poor thing broke her ankle and had to use crutches all week. She flew all the way from Sweden!

Sunday brunch at Causeway Cafe. I had the Neptune Benedict. I felt so sick after this meal but it was worth it!

Mimi ready to party! This was a special year for Mimi because she had a Cochlear Transplant in June. She had zero hearing in her right ear and 20% in her left ear for years. We could barely communicate with her it was so sad. Now being able to hear she feels so alive and part of the family. It's so wonderful.

She even asked me to make her a liquor drink! This woman hasn't had alcohol in years. She was having a blast! 

Theo and I all dressed and ready to party with the family.

My mom and I aka my twin. They used to call us Peat and Repeat when I was little. 

Most of the cousins hanging out. It's so great to see everyone year to year. I hope we keep the tradition going once we have our own kids.

The awesome view of the sound from the widow's watch on top of the house.

View of the beach from the watch.

 Lunch at Front Street Brewery in downtown Wilmington with my parents. So delicious!

Playing LCR (Left Center Right). Such a fun game. It's perfect for parties and so easy to play. Check it out if you're looking for a fun group game. You can play with any amount of money you choose. We did 3 $1 dollar bills each.

My crazy mom showing off all the money she won. 

I'm so sad the trip is over! I can't wait till next year!
