A summer vacation was not on our calendar for this year, that is until about a month ago when fabulous family friends of ours invited us (along with my sister-in-law + fam) to stay at their house. We thought they were crazy for inviting 4 adults and 4 kids into their home but we so gratefully said yes at the chance to hang out and get to the ocean! We could not have had a better time!
The days were spent splashing away in the water, watching the boys boogie board and collect sea shells. Frozen yogurt was enjoyed daily. I cannot believe I have yet to try it until this trip – oh have I converted. I could have licked the bowl clean if there were not other tourists walking beside me. On our very last day my sister-in-law and I walked down the boardwalk to grab pizzas at Dough Boys – highly recommend it if you’re in the area! The pizza was the bomb and the bartender whipped us up a delicious cocktail to liven up our afternoon at the beach!
At our last beach vacation in Hilton Head – I went picture crazy. As I sit here I am wondering if I will regret that I did not do that this time around. I did not pick up my camera – eek! I took uber grainy pictures with my cell phone.
But what I did do in the mean time takes the cake….
I took every second possible to play with the boys, lay in the sun and relax with my family. I did not miss a beat – and while I wish I would have caught some of these moments on camera I am certain they will forever be engraved in my mind.
Here are just a few that I thankfully snagged, and am embarrassed to show you at the same time!
I’m literally laughing out loud at how bad these pictures turned out – but look at those beach bums.
Brody gets tan so quickly – just like Dan. And sweet Owen has my skin, taking hours upon hours of sunshine to show any signs of being sun-kissed.
Boogie boarding was a HUGE hit. These boys were digging it.
The cocktails. Oh the cocktails you guys. You know how I love thee. This was my first “corona-rita” and it will definitely not my last!
My birthday fell on Friday, it worked out beautifully. A day spent at the beach, and an evening at an amazing mexican restaurant surrounded by some of my favorite people!
It is safe to say I am one lucky lady. 29 years old. 12 of those spent with that stud sitting next to me. 2 insanely amazing little boys that call me mom.
I’ll drink to that!
