Loftin Family Vacation 2013 (Day 7)

On Day 7 (Friday, September 13, 2013), we got up at 8:30 AM, after an early morning play party with Kayli from 4:30 – 6:30 AM. We spent the first couple hours on the beach. Kayli enjoyed climbing in and out of the holes we dug and picking up seashells. We went in around 12:30 PM for lunch and an afternoon nap for Kayli (she was very tired during lunch).

Mom and Dad spent the time cleaning the condo and began getting things ready to go home. After Kayli woke up around 3:00 PM, we spent a little time in the condo and then went back to Broadway at the Beach to enjoy a dinner at Yomato Japanese Restaurant and also to purchase a bag for Kayli from Embroidery Paradise.

We went back to the condo for about an hour prior to heading out for a quick ice cream run. Kayli enjoyed tasting Krazy Kookie Dough ice cream (cake batter ice cream with pieces of colored sugar cookie dough). We went back to the condo and completed some additional packing prior to relaxing for a bit and heading to bed around 10:15 PM.

Loftin Family Vacation 2013 (Day 3)

On Day 3 (Monday, September 9, 2013), we got up at 7:30 AM. We went to the beach at 9:00 AM.

At 10:30 AM, Kayli was very sleepy, so we went back to the condo to allow her to sleep.  But once we got there, she was very resistant to sleeping and it was 11:30 AM before she went to sleep. Mommy and Daddy ate lunch while Kayli slept.  Afterwards, Mommy was going to go back to the beach while Kayli continued to sleep. But after she got her bathing suit on, Kayli woke up. We fed Kayli lunch, and then Daddy watched Kayli while Mommy went to the beach for about an hour, until 1:30 PM.  Mommy then came back to the condo with Daddy and Kayli. Kayli took another nap, and Mommy went back down to the ocean around 3:45 PM and stayed out until Kayli woke up around 4:30 PM. We then went to the beach to take some pictures, visited the pool for a few minutes and returned to the condo around 5:30 PM.

We went out to pick up dinner.  After eating a quick dinner, we went back outside around 7:00 PM for some more pictures. We came in around 7:30 PM and everyone got cleaned up before bed time.

Loftin Family Vacation 2013 (Day 2)

On Day 2 (Sunday, September 8, 2013), we got up at 9:30 AM (due to a baby who wanted to play during the night). We went out to the beach around 10:30 AM after an hour of getting ready. We stayed on the beach for about 2 hours before coming inside at 12:30 PM.

We all got baths, had lunch and a nice nap. Around 4:30 PM, we went out to the Tanger Outlets on Kings Highway. After an hour or so shopping, we left and went to TGI Friday’s for supper. We stopped at Eagles on the way back to get a small bucket for Kayli and a wicker mat to sit on while on the beach. We arrived back at the condo around 8:00 PM, where we enjoyed a few games and some TV prior to going to bed.

Loftin Family Vacation 2013 (Day 1)

We left home on Day 1 (Saturday, September 7, 2013) at 10:30 AM and arrived to Xanadu II at 3:45 PM, but the condo was not ready until 4:45 PM.  So we went to Wal-Mart to do our grocery shopping to use up the time.

After we got checked in and unpacked at the condo, Kayli enjoys her first visit to the ocean – at Cherry Grove Beach.
