Jack and I got home yesterday afternoon after a week at the beach with my family. Unfortunately, Tommy wasn’t able to get away from work, so he couldn’t go with us. We missed having him there – and apparently, Jack really missed the structure and balance of our normal routines. There was little sleeping and a lot of “terrible twos” on this trip. But we had a great time with family and completely loved getting to spend the week with them. It was my first time going to Hilton Head Island. Jack and I both loved it.
I don’t have a lot of good pictures because I don’t have a real camera right now, so here are some I took with my phone.
This boy loves to swim. By the end of the week he was swimming all by himself, or “Jack self” as he would say.
We played on the massive, never-ending-fun, playground. It was probably the coolest playground we’ve ever seen. Jack was way too busy having fun to look at me.
Dinner at the Salty Dog.
There was a spider web by the elevator that caught “biiiiiggg bugs”. Jack wanted to take his favorite trucks to the beach with him. They won’t be his favorites for long now that they’re covered in sand and are salt water rusty.
Walking back from an evening swim at the pool. Jack was so proud of himself for holding his own towel around him just like everyone else.
Bike rides. Jack’s favorite thing ever.
Jack and I [and I’m sure our family, too] were pretty wiped out from vacation. After a week of short sleep, it was nice to get home and sleep in our own beds for a long time. It was a great trip! Thanks for the fun trip, Nan and Pops!
