spring break mini vacay: kure, carolina and wrightsville beaches

checking out the fish
We started the day at the NC Aquarium- Fort Fisher, about a half hour south of our hotel in Wilmington.

alligators at the nc aquarium
The kids love checking out the alligator exhibit-- especially seeing Luna, the albino alligator!

Fun at the aquarium!

frogs and turtles
We walked around outside the aquarium for a bit-- the kids thought the giant frogs were fun to "ride" and we spotted a family of seven (!!) turtles on a log.

donuts and fudge
On our way back north, we stopped at Carolina Beach for donuts from the legendary Britt's Donut Shop-- we actually planned out our days according to the Britt's opening schedule so that we could make sure to have their delicious, hot from the fryer donuts!  And they did not disappoint-- so make sure to go if you're ever in CB!!  And since we were there, we stopped at the Fudgeboat for some fudge to go!

found a crab
Nick found a little crab and he and Ellie had a blast playing with it for awhile.

fun at the beach
These kids could spend hours at the beach-- and they did!  They played and played and played... until it got too windy and cold and we headed back to Wilmington for dinner (pizza!) and bed.
