FAMILY BEACH VACATION - MAY 2019 : PART TWO - The Perfectly Imperfect Mama


by - Thursday, June 13, 2019

Happy Thursday!

I would say "whoop whoop" tomorrow is Friday BUT it's summertime & every day feels like Friday!  Eeeek!

Yesterday, I shared PART ONE of our family beach vacation so if you missed it, you can check it out.  

Today, I'm sharing part two!
Day four started out on the beach & y'all, I could sit & watch these three walk hand in hand on the beach

Sweetest thing ever.

Pssssst … it's not always rainbows & sunshine over here.  Yesterday was a HOT MESS.  I lost my cool with my two bigs & later had to apologize to them because the last thing my reaction to their behavior was Christ-like.  Sigh.

Grace upon grace, friends.
They loved so much playing in the ocean with Paw-Paw.  Dan & I both grew up spending lots of time with our grandparents & I'm so thankful our kiddos have such wonderful ones all around to do life with!
After a day on the beach, it was back to the condo for showers & naps.  I can't even lie, every day they napped/rested … I curled up in bed & napped too.  And I have no shame.

But seriously, those piggies!!

After nap time, my sister-in-loves & I took the babies to Once Upon a Child at Surf Side beach because it is THE best!

And while we were gone, Cooper & Millie Jo headed to the arcade.
Late that evening, Dan & my brother-in-loves finally got there!
And all the mama's said AMEN! 😉
Our last day was spent on the beach WITH Dan!
We played in the sand …
A lot.
We boogie boarded like it was our job …
We played with cousins …
Because cousins definitely make the best of friends!
A certain mama … took way too many pictures of a itty bitty beach babe …
BUT can you blame me!?!?!
We almost got taken down by a big wave …
And laughed way too hard about it!
We took a family picture & I LOVE the fact that our niece wanted in too!! I mean, what's one more!?!

After spending a few hours at the ocean, we headed to cool off at the pool …
Before showers & naps!

That evening we went to dinner at Kings Famous Pizza.  It is incredible & one of our very favorite places to eat while we are there!
And this girl looked cute as a button.
Even Paw-Paw has the leg pop going on.  HA!

After dinner, we went back to the condo, loaded up the kiddos in strollers & the wagon & walked down to Ocean Drive to play at the arcade & get ice cream.
We ended our night & vacation with a night swim after putting Itty Bitty to bed because girlfriend loves her sleep schedule.

It really was such a fun vacation.
Lots of family time, laughs & the occasional melt down because hello, six kids.

I can't wait for our next trip!
In case you missed it from yesterday's post, here is our video from the week!

Have the best day, friends!
