I know this post is about a week overdue, and I apologize! My spring break was absolutely wonderful, the road trip was just as fun as I expected it would be, and the whole vacation was relaxing and full of lots of laughter and memory-making (is that a word?). Instead of writing out paragraphs of each detail of my vacation, I decided to just give you my five favorite moments of the five day journey. Now, this isn’t to say that other moments were not memorable or perfect, but these are the five that have carried the most weight.
1. The drive
The drive itself was so much fun. We left Jersey at 4:20 am, hoping to reach our destination by 5 pm. I drove the first stretch, and S stayed up and rode shotgun to help me stay awake. We created a roadtrip playlist ahead of time, so we passed the first few hours of the trip singing along. We got to watch the sun rise, and we caught a glimpse of the Washington Monument when we passed by Washington. Since it was our first time on vacation away from our parents, and our first time ever driving a car through these other states, this was a pretty big deal for us.
2. St. Patty’s Day
Unfortunately St. Patty’s Day was the day I lost my phone, womp. That was pretty depressing, and also the reason why my Instagramming suddenly stopped. Disregarding that, St. Patty’s Day was fun because we all got dressed up in our finest green clothes, and wore cute shamrock headbands to Myrtle Beach. Though it was cold and rainy, we walked the boardwalk and bought lots of souvenirs.
3. Planet Fun
This place was a pleasant surprise. Our first day at Ocean Isle was marked by rain and 40 degree weather. We were pretty bummed until we looked up what we could do indoors and found a place not too far from where we were staying. We decided to check it out and were ecstatic when we found out that with $15, we could play unlimited mini-golf (glow-in-the-dark mini-golf might I add), unlimited laser tag, unlimited bowling, and unlimited arcade games. I have never heard of a place in Jersey that has such an amazing deal, and we had more fun than all the little kids running around the place combined.
4. Walking on the beach and finding seashells
Even though it was cold during our stay, we walked on the beach as much as we could. We were all so happy to find scallop seashells that were intact, because up here they’re mostly broken. We picked up a bunch, and I’m excited to find a place to display them. The waves were beautiful, even in the rain, and there was nothing like walking on the beach to remind me that summery days are coming.
5. Wine and Cards Against Humanity
Every evening we had the same drill- playing Cards Against Humanity. If you haven’t played it, then the best way to describe it is a rated-R version of Apples to Apples. We enjoyed a lot of laughs because of this game, and we indulged in some cheap wine as well. Classy and fun.
Can it be any more perfect?
