Our First Family Vacation.

Last week we went to Mount Pleasant South Carolina for a weeks vacation.
It was the first real family vacation we have been on, and it was perfect and awesome and wonderful in every way!
We had been to California with Harrison before, and for a city break to Boston, but never a real beach-holiday stay-in-a-hotel-with-4-of-us type vacation.


The drive went pretty well apart from a few tantrums when disturbing the kids to get them into bed, and we left later than expected so we traveled until 1am the first day, which was way too late seeing as we were all up early for Matt's Marathon that he ran that morning (more on that later!)

the kids actually did really well in the car, they slept most of the way, and then Harrison watched TV and played games on his iPhone. On the way down (the first leg- we did it on 2 stages) we stopped a total of 5 times between us! What with nursing and potty breaks we couldn't seem to get co-ordinated, we did much better on the way home!

We spent every morning on the beach- we had perfect beach weather 80ish degrees and sun sun sun! The water was almost 80f too.

Wouldn't you love to live here....in this 5m house?

This is us set up on the beach in the same spot almost every day.

Below Harrison running on the beach- He had a blast and got very brave in the water by the end of the week.

Playing get-you get-you.

He loved the water too...

All smiles :o)

Harrison and pooh-bah making sandcastles.

Allister is like this pretty much 24-7!

And look at those teeth! And you can barely see his surgery scar too.

Don't ya just love bare-babies Y'all!

Uncle Scott, Natalie and Aunt Barb came to visit while we were there which was great! I was very bad at getting photos though., but here is Natalie who was so wonderful with the boys and so helpful! And Aunt Barb too.

We of course got to see Aunt Leslie and Great Gram too! I'll have to steal some photos from Grammy for the blog :)

All in all we had the most wonderful time, it was great to see family, Matt and I got a great date night, the boys had a blast, and so did we! I think we will make this a family tradition and go every year. that's if I cant persuade Matt to take a job there before that!

I'm sure I forgot to say lots I wanted to on this post, but I didn't want to leave it a week before you got to see the photos, and I'm still playing laundry-catch-up!
