Daily Moments – Week 20

It was Beach Week for us. After getting back, I was asked, “How was your trip?”  Honestly, it was the first real beach trip I’ve had in awhile. No breastfeeding, no nap schedule, no specific bedtime, and the adult to kid ratio was high (5 grandparents!) – it was awesome. I actually got to sit on the beach.  We had a great week and we are currently enjoying a day off.

Here’s our week  . . .

Getting ready to go. Both boys insisted on wearing hats.

So excited!

We were packed to gills. My husband doesn’t lay on the beach or read books on vacation, he rides bikes, goes fishing and snorkeling. So we had lots of recreational gear (including a bike trailer for both kids to ride in), luggage, a double stroller, and a pack-n-play all stuffed into our car.011

We had a pool next to our condo and because our kids wake up at 5:30 when they go to the beach, we were the only ones at the pool by 8:30.013

Like I mentioned above, we had 5 grandparents which helped tremendously with those early mornings.022Every morning the boys took their breakfast outside and watched the waves.
