Birthday at the Beach - Wrightsville Beach Part 2

The other day I shared a few of our photos from our weekend in Wilmington and Wrightsville Beach. Here are my favorites from the rest of our trip.

The morning of my birthday was spent at the beach. The water was warmer than it was a month ago and this time, Little Sweets declared (over and over again), "I do like the ocean!" I'm pretty sure that boogie boarding is the best way to spend a birthday morning. The last time we boogie boarded, I was 2 months pregnant with Little Sweets... oh how I've missed it! That's me out there waiting for a wave.

I just love the "East Coast-ness" of this next picture. I love the long boardwalks out to the sand and the tall grass on either side, and that you'll only find that on the East Coast.

Here's the view from the water towards the houses (with a little help from a few Photoshop Actions):

After afternoon naps and my walk around downtown Wilmington, we went out for my very special birthday dinner at The Melting Pot. We haven't been to a Melting Pot since 2003. It was time.

We got the best booth in the corner with this view of the wine racks. Or maybe it was the most secluded booth since we requested a booster seat when we made the reservation. Either way, it was awesome. And Little Sweets was on her best behavior.

We were so stuffed by the time the dessert course arrived, but of course we made room for it (we are Americans, after all).

Best birthday in a long time...probably because it was the first birthday I've spent with my husband in 3 years. It was so good celebrate with my two favorite people.
