Beach Trip 2010

We just returned from our first real family vacation. We spent 4 days at the beach with friends. It was chaotic and fun. Some people came and went but at the highest, there was 16 adults and 6 kids under 3 there. All I can say is that at least the adults outnumbered the kiddos.

This trip was Emerson's first time to the beach. She loved the sand immediately. The ocean was not a hit until the last 20 minutes of our last day there. Typical. Oh well, at least she eventually warmed up to it. Hopefully next time we are there it will be love at first sight.

The best part of the trip was just hanging out with friends and watching the kids play together. Two of the kiddos there are Emerson's best friends in the whole world- Jaylee and Hayden. Emy thought it was pretty special to spend all day, every day with them.

We drove home Sunday and all of us were super exhausted and slept great in our own beds. We are just about caught up on sleep and back into our normal routine.

Here are some pics from the trip. (They are in reverse order- sorry, I don't have the energy to re-arrange them)

Toby thoroughly enjoyed himself and had 2 baths a day (literally)
Spending the late afternoons in the pools at the beack house. Her face does not show it but she really did enjoy pool time.

PS- I cannot believe that we did not take a family picture at the beach! I am using pregnancy as my excuse for avoiding the camera:)
