The Vacation

So we finally got to our LONG awaited beach vacation! Sara and I booked a beach house in Hilton Head, SC and we had been waiting for it for a very long time! Sara's schedule made her leave before out time at the house was up so I decided to invite my parents and 2 little brothers out to share the excitement.
We drove down on a tuesday because we had to pick up Sara from her red eye in ATL Wed morning. We stayed in a little motel for the night and let the boys get all their energy out from the drive. Theyhad so much fun swimming with daddy in the pool!

the next morning we picked up Sara and started our 3 hour drive to Savannah! Poor Sara almast went crazy watching Diego with the boys the whole time!

As soon as we got to Savannah (where we stayed for a couple days before we went to Hiton Head) we had to get to the beach ASAP.
Vance pretty much never left thte water after this point! We also went to Wormsloe Plantation... The most beautiful place ever! Ben made us watch a video about it but quite honestly... I didn't pay attention. It some old plantation from Civil war times?
Me with crazy Bro Bro
AND of coarse Vance took it upon himself to do this..... WHY?
Ben kept the kids for a while after Wormsloe so that we could go to the beach alone... It was nice

We also went to visit Ben's Brother Mike and I got to play with cute little Ronin.... Shouldn't he be my kid? And the family arrives! My Mom, Dad, Walker, Rhett and cousin Forrest! So exciting! All the boyd just drooled over Sara the whole time they were with her! Funny how the always want shotgun... of coarse unless Sara is in the back;)Walker and Sara... I think these 2 might hook up one day....... (in his dreams) jk Walkie
Rhett's favorite thing to do while he was there was to catch wildlife! My cute Dad at his new favorite place "The Savannah Candy Kitchen" It's AMAZING!
The boys really wanted to see Gator so I took the to the Crab Shack where they are everywhere! Of coarse later they saw them in the wild just like everyone that vacations down there. Ben anf the boys like to eat Gator! YUCKJust a cute pic of Ben being silly!

So my Uncle's Brother Eric is directing the new Nick Sparks movie starring Miley Cyrus so We went down to the set to hang out. It was so much fun getting treating like VIP's. Every one was so nice to us because we were Eric's family. He actually put us all in as extra's so look for us! The movie is called "The Last Song"
Eric is in green.... Nicest guy EVER! Thanks for everything Eric.... especially the food!
I had SOO much fun playing poker with the fam! (with cheerios) I am so good at the game! Mattress Surfing? Walker got this bright idea to bring an air Mattress to the beach. The boys loved it.
On the last day we watched the craziest storm roll in on the beach. People were running like it was the end of the world! I don't think we took it seriously enough until the life guards started running at us and yelling to get off the beach. Luckily we made it in the condo right before things got SOOO ugly! It was like a Hurricane!
I love this little pic of Bro with the storm!
So in a nutshell, we had so much fun, but I must say that vacationing with kids is a ton of work! I was so happy to have so much family there to help out with my boys. I was so sad to say goodbye to everyone! The boys love being with my family and didn't want to say goodbye either. My next post will be all my favorite beach picture.... as if I don't all ready have enough!

What a great vacation. Thanks so much for letting Forrest tag along. He had a great time. The pics are great and it makes me miss your boys so, so much. They are ADORABLE!

You might be pregnant, but you'd never know it by all the energy you put into doing fun things. That's a gift.

Thanks for this post.

Much love,

Those pics you took of the storm were amazing...with your cool camera affects. I love Bro's big blue eyes and full lips...what a cutie.

Your hair is getting longer...I do like it! Still looking for that belly...is it coming along???

How fun for you to have your family back East. I am sure it was bitter sweet seeing them leave.

Great pics!
