We wasted no time going on summer vacation this year. Kids were only out of school for a couple of days before we headed to the beach. I said we were going to go somewhere other than Myrtle Beach this year but in the end, we went with what we are use to. We love Myrtle. We know where all the good places to eat are and all the fun stuff to do is.
I had a few moments where I had to secretly push down some anxiety attacks but that is a different blog post. We had a great vacation and made lots of great memories!
Most of these pictures aren't great quality b/c I took a lot of them on my phone this year.
This is going to be picture overload but here you go....
In the picture below....we saw this sign and had to have a picture. This is Rylee's motto about life!
She had on her DRAMA hat for the majority of the trip.
Me with my sweetheart! It amazes me how different I look from one picture to the next....one second I look like a kid and the next a grown up.
This is Chrissy, one of my friends. Her and her husband just happen to be on vacation the same week as us and we stayed at the same place. Tegan fell in love with her. He has always known her but for some reason, he decided that she would be the love of his life. I think he is trying to prepare me to let go of him in the future:) The funny thing was that after they took this picture below, we got in separate cars to go eat and he said "now Chrissy can always look at that picture on her phone". Like he was so excited for her b/c she would always be able to look at that picture of them together.
He didn't want anyone walking beside her. At one point she was having to hold her husband's hand and his....I think the boys were jealous of each other:) He wanted to go home with her! It was really sweet. It takes a lot to connect with Tegan. He doesn't really have a connection with anyone out side of our house except his friend Kailey but he really connected with Chrissy and thinks she is the best thing ever!
Also on vacation the same week as us and staying at the same place was my older brother, his wife and 2 kids. The kids loved getting to play with their cousins (and their uncle as you can see from the picture). It was fun for me to watch them enjoying each other so much!
One night Tegan took vacation to a whole different level (insert anxiety) when he wet the bed. This came out of no where b/c he hasn't wet the bed in forever but he said he was dreaming about peeing:) Ha! Anyways, do you know what it is like when a kid wets the bed at the beach at 4:00 in the morning and you have no extra sheets??? I changed him in the dark and we totally got his pajamas all wrong. Side note....yes I was tired so I may of just threw a towel over the wet spot and made him lay in it. This picture below is the next morning....he was enjoying the view while eating his cereal with his pajamas on backwards....tops and bottoms!
Sad attempt at a selfie with my ancient phone!
We have taken a picture of the kids in this chair for the past three summers. At some point when it isn't the middle of the night, I am going to find the other two pictures and compare how much they have changed!
Tegan kept basically trying to overthrow himself off the pier so my husband was in panic mode and just held him like this the whole time. I was thankful too when we saw a very large shark swimming around the pier....not a baby, a big one!
I think they got tired???
My sweet family!
I hope we always get to take great family vacations together. Rylee says that even when they are grown with families, she hopes we always go on vacation together. Her daddy says no, we are going alone but I know that me and Rylee will find a way to get what we want:)
I am saving the "photo session" pictures for their own post. All the stress I had getting those pictures makes it deserve its own post.
Happy Friday everyone!!!!
