Hilton Head 2012

Last week we went to Hilton Head Island for our annual vacation with the Stovall clan (except Zack & Audrey couldn't make it this year with new Baby Tensley). We had a great time. It was by far the easiest beach trip we've had since Bird made his debut.

The 6-hour car trip, which I was dreading, wasn't bad at all. Bird had one melt-down towards the end of the trip, but holding my Biggie-sized Sprite cup offered an instant attitude adjustment. ???? Who knows. Sometimes it's just the little things in life that make us smile.

Our time at the beach was great. I highly recommend beachin' it in May or September when the crowds are smaller and the temps are lower. It's much more enjoyable! And Bird had a great time. He spent most of his beach time running around in circles, digging holes with his shovel, or playing with his trucks in the tide pools. He was one happy camper!

And to top it all off, Bird behaved exceptionally well and slept like a log the entire week! (The two are probably connected.) He slept from 9pm to 8am nightly and also took a 2-hour-nap every day!! If he could just play outside all day every day like he did at the beach, he would be winning awards for his stellar toddler behavior! He loved having the space & time to just run and burn all that energy. I didn't mind it, either.

We had a great time with Meme, RayRay, Aunt Laney & Uncle Rich. We are so blessed to have such a wonderful family and to have the opportunity to get away.

  1. I'm glad you had a good time with the family! Now you just have to find a way for him to be outside playing everyday. See you this weekend.
