(this post is out of order..ugh! i like for them to be in order but i don't know what blogger is doin-this trip was from the summer in August)
Some things I want to remember about our first family of four (and Nana) beach trip: the way Isaac loved to play in the sand but mostly would just want to eat it. He would put it in his mouth by the handful so we had to watch him closely, the way Ella loved to build sandcastles and wanted her pink shovel, the way they both love to swim in the water and how Ella did so good with her swimming in the pool- she loves to go under the water and is constantly putting her head under and swimming to whoever is nearest to her, the way she loved going to the ocean but then got swept under by a little wave (right by the shore...I was right next to her ;)) and then became scared of the waves so she wouldn't go in the water after that and how when I was out in the ocean, she was so concerned about the "baby in mommy's belly" and that it would get hurt by the waves and not be able to "sleep"...so sensitive and thoughtful she is! Of course I took a bazillion pictures of our time in Hilton Head...
at the pool with daddy
first time at the beach- pretty excited!
collecting sand for her sandcastles
my two beach babes ;)
they had fun with their nana
we attempted a family photo in the water...
and some walking with daddy
celebrated eight years together out to dinner and to a movie...first time we'd been to a movie in over five years!! so thankful for this man in our lives!
a little one-on-one time with this cutie early in the morning due to some fussiness and waking up too early every morning we were there...but then daddy would go and bring back some donuts and coffee. that little smile and those yummies wasn't too bad after all ;)
we did a lot more playing at the beach and building sandcastles
apparently it looked really yummy to a certain someone...
we liked to take pictures together in our "matching" hats
this silly boy was all about climbing in and out of that chair- so funny to watch!
here he is after climbing in by himself and looking so proud
went to one of our favorite seafood restaurants one night
she was all about smiling for the camera...she picked that spot for a picture
made it to the lighthouse one night. or as ella would say "lightening house"
of course, family pic in front of it
isaac had fun pushing sissy in the stroller ;)
me and my sweet girl...i will always treasure these times i have with my family! love them so!
