Vacation 2010

We just got back from a wonderful family beach vacation. Here is my list of favorite things about our trip!

FAMILY TIME: We were able to spend tons of family time together at the beach, eating, swimming, relaxing, laughing and just being together. One of my mom's oldest friends, Betsy, goes with us too. What a fun crew!!

SPECIAL TIME WITH KINNEY AND WILMA: We were all so excited that granddaddy was well enough to come to the beach. I love having time just to sit and visit and AnnaKate really loves all the one on one time she got!

PLAYING WITH COUSINS: AnnaKate loves her cousins. I think she feels like she finally has the older brothers that she so desperately needs. It was fun to always have someone around to play with!

SEEING JESSICA: AnnaKate and I were able to go to the beach a few days early and visit with Jessica from a New Kind of Normal. Alex is one of AnnaKate's RTS brothers. It was so much fun...I just wish it was for longer!

BEACH: What fun we had going to the beach each day! AnnaKate loves the ocean and the sand. I really think she could stay out all day long.

So stylish...even on the beach!

One day they evacuated the water due to an alligator in the ocean. The wildlife rescue people took hours but they finally captured that lost little guy!

FOOD: In my book, vacation is a lot about the great food and we ate a lot of it!! We went out to eat a few times to great local restaurants and cooked in some. My favorite dinner was at Horry's...I really think I just liked the dessert the best! 16 layer cake...yes, 16 layers!

Whew...AnnaKate and I were gone 11 days! We feel so blessed to have been able to take such a wonderful vacation with such great people!

We can't wait for next year!!

GREAT pictures!!! Favorite is the cuddling with Kinney picture. The family pics are great too.

You could do a 14 layer cake, Bakerella makes it look so easy!

11 days?!? I'm jealous, Grace isn't even out of school yet! It looks like you had a fabulous time! I've missed you!

You must have been near Cherry Grove/North Myrtle...we were there all last week, too--we had to evacuate the water b/c of the alligator, too. We were so glad to watch the local news that night and find out that they had captured him and released him back to where he belonged!

Your pictures are great!

What a wonderful relaxing time! I agree, we should all just live at the beach forever.

Loved the picture of AK on the beach standing with her head in between her legs, . One of Noah's favorite positions. I wish he loved the beach as much as she does though.
