It was Beach Week for us. After getting back, I was asked, “How was your trip?” Honestly, it was the first real beach trip I’ve had in awhile. No breastfeeding, no nap schedule, no specific bedtime, and the adult to kid ratio was high (5 grandparents!) – it was awesome. I actually got to sit on the beach. We had a great week and we are currently enjoying a day off.
Here’s our week . . .
Getting ready to go. Both boys insisted on wearing hats.
We were packed to gills. My husband doesn’t lay on the beach or read books on vacation, he rides bikes, goes fishing and snorkeling. So we had lots of recreational gear (including a bike trailer for both kids to ride in), luggage, a double stroller, and a pack-n-play all stuffed into our car.
We had a pool next to our condo and because our kids wake up at 5:30 when they go to the beach, we were the only ones at the pool by 8:30.
Like I mentioned above, we had 5 grandparents which helped tremendously with those early mornings.Every morning the boys took their breakfast outside and watched the waves.
And they learned new tricks.
We watched beautiful sunsets.
And ate fabulous food.
While we were there, Lala celebrated her 2nd birthday.She loved all the attention.
Happy Birthday Little Lady!
Silas won the prize for messiest.
Hello Mr. Hollywood.
The boys were old enough this year to fully enjoy the beach. They spent long periods building tunnels, roads, fire stations, and ponds.
I made Monkey Bread for the first time.
The whole family.
When we got back, we saw our yard needed much attention. We pulled up our giant swiss chard.
And for Memorial Day I made Cinnamon Honey Pancakes.See you next week!
