Take a Hike

Waking up to a sunny sky yesterday, Shelby and I decided to spend our Sunday morning walking the trails at Carolina Beach State Park. It was our first trip to this park and Shelby’s first time hiking. I think I know her new favorite outdoor activity (besides frisbee, of course)!


Since we’d never been there before and I’m not especially direction-inclined, I made sure to ask one of the park employees that the trails did, indeed, loop back to the starting point. He reassured me that the trails were well marked, so we were on our way!


We hiked around on partly sandy, partly wooded paths going in whichever direction we pleased (i.e. I followed Shelby wherever her little feet took her). After being out for a good while and not seeing any of the same trails twice, it wasn’t looking like the paths “looped back around.” So, we did the only logical thing we could… We pulled the ol’ Forrest Gump move and turned back around.


Once we finally caught sight of more people, Shelby decided she trusted their directional skills more than mine so we followed them back to the beginning. Winking smile

When we returned home, I joined Ryan and a couple of friends to try out the new Nick’s Diner in downtown Wilmington. Though the food was pretty good and there was a lot on the menu to choose from, the artwork and décor in the restaurant really stole the show. “Eclectic” is how I described it to Ryan… Pop art to cartoon drawings to exposed brick to our Fred Flintstone-covered tabletop. Yeah, it was a lot to take in. Definitely a fun experience!

For our weekend movie, we decided to see 30 Minutes or Less. After getting hooked on Parks & Rec last year, I’ve since been a huge fan of Aziz Ansari. However, I can only picture Jesse Eisenberg in his role in The Social Network. Overall, it was pretty funny and we laughed a ton!
