Awkward and Awesome Thursday

It's Awkward and Awesome time again.
I think this will be the beach edition...
 Awkward:
  • Wearing a sweater, sweatshirt and jacket at the same time to walk the beach and still being cold.
  • 40 mile an hour winds while visiting The Wright Brothers Memorial.  The wind was blowing so hard, I had to take my earrings out.
  • Trying to open the door to the balcony at the hotel and after many attempts realizing you need to remove the bar blocking the sliding door.
  • Son2 trying to get a cookie from the front desk of hotel.  Every-time, they put more out people swarmed the counter.  He finally walked over to a store and bought his own cookies!
  • Going to a Mexican restaurant with televisions on the walls.  All the channels were on Mexican TV stations.  (it was fun trying to translate)
 Awesome:
  • The last day we were at the beach the temps rose and we actually were wearing shorts!
  • Duck Donuts!
  • The Black Pelican and every bite of food we had there!
  • All of the cool kites we saw flying.
  • Our entire trip.  A much different beach experience than going to Florida where we have gone for years.
 What did you or are you doing for your Easter Break if you have one?

 Hope your Thursday is awesome!!

That first beach photo is beautiful and I love your purple pants! Too funny that you were so bundled up on the beach- different vacation that's for sure but it still sounds like good family quality time!

Even though it looks freezing - it still looks and sounds like so much fun :

Glad you're having fun. What a nice memory to see the Wright brothers memorial: last time I saw it was thirty years ago.

Awesome! My Easter break just started. So far I have eaten rice, had four cups of green tea, and did some laundry.

Exciting, right? Though I might go to the consignment store later today.

So windy you had to take your earrings out? That should be used for storm forecasts. Drizzle is leave your suede shoes at home, windstorm is take your earrings out.
