Our Beach Vacation

We arrived home on Sunday after a week at the beach with my family.  It was such a great vacation!  We had beautiful weather and it could not have been a more relaxing week.  The house my parents rented was right on the beach, so I spent the entire week bouncing from the beach to our pool to our hot tub.  I didn't wear shoes once and I came home with hardly any laundry because I lived in a swimsuit.  A perfect vacation!  It was so great to spend some extended time with my family, and a week at the beach was the perfect goodbye to summer.  Some of my favorite parts of the week...

*walks on the beach with my husband
*celebrating our nephew's 1st birthday
*talking by the pool with my sisters and mom
*sandy little hands reaching up for my hand at the edge of the ocean
*snuggling with my 4-month old nephew
*watching our nieces swim around the pool on their own (they're getting so big!)
*crab stomping our last night there
*my oldest niece wanting me to fix her hair like mine and put on my makeup
*celebrating our 2nd anniversary
*getting to talk with my parents each night when everyone else was busy putting their kids to bed

  6. Your pictures are so great! Glad you had such a good vacation. I would LOVE to stay in an oceanfront house again one day. My family did it a couple years and it was so so nice. Also, aren't nieces and nephews the most fun ever??

  13. I'm so glad you had a great vacation - it looks and sounds like a fun, wonderful time together. I'm slightly jealous and wishing I could get my family together for a beach vacation like that. I love your pictures, especially the one where Mason is laughing ... that makes me melt!! :) The beach pictures are so beautiful ... sigh ... :)
