our last hurrah of summer

We enjoyed a wonderful family day today.
We began our day with one of our favorites, pumpkin baked oatmeal, and then headed to the 9am gathering at The Bridge Church. After church we grabbed lunch at Panera, using our gift cards, and then headed to Carolina Beach.
We participated in the summer reading program through New Hanover County Library.  Each of the kids received a coupon for three different things down at Carolina Beach: one free hour of paddle boat or bike rental, a free ice cream cone at Krazy Kones and a pick 3 candy's at the Fudge Shop.

We tried the paddle boats first. It really was the perfect day, overcast & breezy, not sweltering! We only had to use 2 of our coupons since we needed 2 paddleboats.

We decided to go ahead and do the bike rental since we still had 2 coupons left. That was fun and very entertaining.  Everyone smiled and waved.

After the bike ride the kids picked out their candy, which we are saving for our road trip this weekend. We then got their ice cream cones and headed out to the beach to play!

Savoring these moments when we are all together.
