Wilmington Weekend

Spence and I celebrated our anniversary 3 months delayed this year. We chose Wilmington because we were already going to a wedding there. We got some great recommendations, booked our hotel, sent the kids to my parents (small cryfest when that happened), and headed out. We got into town in time to have dinner at Osteria Cicchetti. O.H M.Y. W.O.R.D.!!!! I wanted to wrap that place up and bring it home with me. I had chicken parmesean and Spence had lasagna. Yummy deliciousness! Then we walked around downtown. Enjoying drinks and dessert at Trebenzios. We split a chocolate orange truffle cake, it made me want to slap Spence and the waitress it was so good! For breakfast on Saturday we hit up Sweet and Savory where I enjoyed the best french toast known to man. (it was so good we went there again on Sunday). Saturday night we got to go to the wedding of my friend from Meredith, Shannon. It was on the beach and beautiful. We had a blast hanging with my big sis's Melissa and Lindsay and their husbands Reade and Dan and even convinced them to join us for breakfast the next morning. After breakfast Sunday morning, we headed to Port City Community Church. We enjoyed a tour, service and lunch with the guy who is their Spence. I can't remember the name of the place, but it was down near the beach and we got to eat outside. We were so blessed by this trip, but were so excited to get home to our boys. I squeezed them tight when I got my hands on them. Ben was especially sweet by touching my face and just staring and Zeke just immediately said "Mommy, Dada, let's go!" and was ready to head home. It was great to get a way but really nice having them to come home to.
Here are the only picture we have from the weekend:
