Pine Knoll Shores

One of the perks of living in N.C. is that we are just a drive from the coast and just a drive from the mountains. So today, we went coastal! Nathan was at work so Chayse and I headed to the coast for a girls day with the Ryan's. This was Chayse's her third trip to the coast! We went to check on the house and while we were there, we went to the aquarium. North Carolina has been renovating all of the aquariums and this was the first time I have been to the Pine Knoll Shores one since they did the remodel. It was so much bigger than the old one! Chayse was very stimulated with all of the fish swimming around, the colors, the kids running all over... when we left, she was asleep before we even got off of the island! While I know she won't remember the trip, I know that it does wonders for her development! Yes, I really was going to try and get a picture with her head in the jaws of this beast but I started laughing so hard the I wasn't sure I could hold her still enough to keep her from moving and hitting her head on these teeth! So we just took a normal picture instead!

How Fun! :) I'm thankful my sister moved back into the area, because my hubby works so much and things we often would do together I find I cannot do by myself very often. Now that my sis is back we can do things with the kiddos together.

Looks like you had a wonderful time, and even though she won't remember, she will "remember" through your pictures later!!!
