The Hot Crab Dip
After lunch, we continued exploring downtown Wilmington, checked into The Wilmingtonian and then drove to Wrightsville Beach. Once we got back from the beach, we started getting ready for dinner.
We had dinner at the Riverboat Landing which is on the corner Market Street. The food was beyond AMAZING!!!! For our appetizer, we ordered the Crispy Pickles. They were better than any fried pickle I've ever had! For dinner, my mom ordered the Riverboat Crab Cakes and I ordered the Char Grilled Tuna. My mom loved the crab cakes. They were very lightly battered...it looked like they used Panko breadcrumbs. I can honestly say the Char Grilled Tuna that I ordered was the best tuna I've ever eaten. It was perfectly cooked and seasoned and the avocado salsa fresca on top was so delicious.

My prayers were answered...the weather couldn't have been more perfect! We heard there were tornadoes and flooding throughout the entire state of NC on Friday but in Wilmington, we only saw a few clouds and had a sprinkle of rain that lasted about 30 seconds. I'm so thankful for the way things worked out for us.
Tomorrow I'll tell you about our visit to the Duplin Winery. :)

On Saturday my mom, Luke and I went to the movie theatre to watch "Heaven if for Real". My mom and I read the book and it was such a sweet and amazing book. The movie was really good but there were several things in the movie that were very different from the book. I'm still really glad we went to see it though and I'll definitely watch it again.
The Easter Bunny always comes to my parents' house and these are the goodies he left for Luke and me and my brother and his wife and their children.
We had Easter dinner at my parents' cabin which is behind their house.
My niece and nephew had a blast with their Easter egg hunt. My brother and sister-in-law actually had to hide the eggs twice because once just wasn't enough for the kids. :)
My dad had to help my niece a little bit. ;)
We didn't take Izzy's Easter gift with us so she had to wait until we got back home to get it. I also kind of teased her with it while we took pictures of her and the new toy but she forgave me. She was about to have a fit to play with it. :)
I hope you all had a great weekend too!!!
