We had fun at the aquarium. We've been before, but it's been a while. We especially love the Shark tunneland of course the kids love touching the stingrays:If you are a fan of SpongeBob you may recognize this character:LOL! The kids pretended he was Cyclops from "Sponge Bob - The Movie". Here are a couple more pics: After the aquarium, we went back to the hotel so Dean could rest a bit. After all, he had just run a marathon! Later, he took the kids to the indoor pool for a while, then we went to dinner at Carraba's.
The next morning, Kai and I woke up at 6:30am to go watch the sunrise. Of course, I took my camera. Two of those pics will be posted on my photo blog. When we went back to the room, I went back to bed! Dean took the kids to the indoor pool one more time, then we all went for a last walk on the beach before checking out.
Before leaving town, we drove up to Calabash where Dean's Nana used to live. It's also kind of a tradition to visit the huge Christmas store whenever we're in the area. We always buy an ornament when we're there. This time we found some ornaments that we fell in love with. They were handpainted wooden ornaments. We couldn't decide which one we wanted. There was the snowman with the beautiful snowflake pattern as well as other snowmen. There were beautiful angels, even a couple different Mary & Joseph with baby Jesus. But this is the one we HAD to have. This was IT. This is the one we bought:
LOL! We just had to have the cow with the quilt on its' back! We love it!
