Family Vacation 2012 Holden Beach

Last week we were at the beach all week for a much needed vacation {we haven't been on a vacation like this since 2008}. We went in with 2 other families and rented a house at Holden Beach {on the coast of NC}. We had a lot of fun, and the weather was perfect!!

We took the ferry from Southport to Ft. Fisher on Monday and took the kids to the NC Aquarium. There, they got to touch some jellies, sting rays, crabs, and sharks. They also had a fossil hunt area where Thomas found a few sharks teeth.

On Tuesday, we took our kids to the USS North Carolina in Wilmington. Nathaniel wasnt too happy at first because the other families were going to swim all day, but when he seen how big the battleship was his face lit right up.

The rest of the week we were at the ocean or relaxing at the house.

  1. Looks like you guys had a blast! Especially with that battleship! I am so sure my son would have loved that! We just got back from our Gatlinburg vacation home rental. It was such an awesome time of year to go to the Great Smokey Mountains National Park! Thanks again for sharing your family's pictures!
