Fun in the Sun

Hilton Head Island, beach, sun, sand, and amazing weather! What more could you ask for? Amazing friends! Last weekend we took a trip down to the coast for a super relaxing getaway! It was so much fun! We went with my sister and her family, and also our friend Vanessa and her whole family! So needless to say it was a little crazy, but it was honestly one of the best times I've ever had! 

We went down after work on Friday and just hung out that night. Saturday we got up and V and I went and got donuts from a little bakery and brought them back to feed the masses. By that time, Loren was up so we went back out and got stuff for lunch. When we got back all the kids were lotioned up and in their swimsuits so we were ready to hit the beach! 

All the kids had a great time playing in the sand and going down to the water and getting buckets full of water and bringing it back up to their "castles!

There was lots of soccer playing and football throwing also! Kate could be quite the little soccer girl! She was very impressive in her ball-kicking skills! The moms had a great time relaxing and laying out! So much fun in fact that Kate decided she wanted to lay out with Aunt Loren and listen to her iPod! 

(Aunt Loren had gotten up to take this picture so daddy decided to lay down!)

We saw lots of cool stuff when the tide went out and we could go explore the inlet! We saw jellyfish, stingrays, horseshoe crabs that were mating (although for the record, I never would have known they were mating if someone hadn't told me!) cranes, live sand dollars, starfish, and so much more! Fun was had by all! 

The best part was still sitting in our chairs most of the day soaking up the sun! Here's me and V doing just that!

Towards the end of the day we all took our chairs down to the edge of the water to put our feet in and all the kids came with us and jumped the waves and threw sand and just had a blast! 

We are so glad we went and we hope we can do it again soon! That was too much fun!
