Vacation-Day 1

Hi from the beach!! :)

We are on vacation this week and couldn’t be happier about a week of sunshine, resting, relaxing and yummy food! We left Saturday evening and drove halfway here. Then, finished the trip yesterday. It would have been ideal to drive it all in one day, and we always did pre-kiddos, but now it makes for a much happier car ride if we break-up the trip!

We had a great first day on the beach today! The weather was beautiful!

We have realized this is the ideal week to come to the beach since school has started back and it’s pretty empty around here. This is a picture of the pool at our condo around lunch time today. In June and July, this place is covered with people, but not this week! It’s been great to have the pool almost all to ourselves! :) There is also no crowds, or traffic and no waits at restaurants. Perfect if you ask me!

This is Miss Jillian’s first vacation and we couldn’t be more thrilled to have her here with us this summer! She is loving just relaxing in her pool and watching all the activity on the beach!
