We had the blessing of being able to go with our family to the beach the first of June and it was by far one of the best weeks we have had this summer! It was a week filled with lots of fun, food, relaxation and lots of sun.
I was extremely stressed about this trip simply because Weston is a terrible traveler and our previous two short trips were a disaster. However, Christian and I learned from those failed trips and really stepped it up in the planning department. We came up with a packing list the size of Texas and packed everything under the sun that we might possibly need in 5 days. My new motto is, "throw it in the trunk!"
Thanks to much planning and preparation we got off to a great start! Weston Hayes hates the car and screams the entire time on most occasions. We timed it just right so he would nap the first two hours, we'd stop for lunch and just chill, then he would nap the final 2 hours. It worked like a charm.
We usually find travel days to be one of our favorite days and love stopping for lunch (Hello.. "The Shed"...no more words needed) and shopping at the outlet mall. We were able to do that and really enjoyed ourselves!
The condo was just beautiful and perfect for all four families that were there. Our room worked out great and the four of us enjoyed bunking together for the week. Although Weston Hayes still feels like it is his duty to wake everyone up at 6:00 am sharp...and midnight and 2:00 am as well. Thanks buddy.
The beach was gorgeous and both Aubrey and Weston seemed to enjoy the sand and water. Bre especially loved the pool and spent the majority of her time there with her daddy and cousins.
I had the most fun of all getting to catch up on some good books while WH napped and nothing makes me happier than a big diet coke and a great novel.
We ate like kings and pretty much just did whatever floated our boats each day. Nothing planned or on the agenda and that is exactly how I like it.
We are so blessed with the best families and we truly love spending time with all of them. Aubrey had an absolute blast with her cousins and was worn slap out each night.
We even were brave enough to take family pictures on the beach before dinner one night. That is not an easy task, but I thought these came out really cute!
All six grandbabies lined up in birth order. It is so funny cause we each have a girl first and then a boy second!
My oh my...I am so blessed!
Wish these moments could be frozen in time...I cherish these memories and hold them close to my heart! Nothing is better than family.
