The Best Family Vacation Ever!

Since this was our first family vacation, it was of course, the best. But seriously we had a major good time. Despite the fact that it is a lot of work to get two squirmy little boys all slathered with suncreen and suited up twice a day to go to the beach, it was so worth it! They literally loved every minute of it.
The beach we went to, Sandbridge, is very quiet and family orineted, so it was perfect for us. We hope to return next year.
Miller is quite the beach bum who eats anything, including sand! He has the diaper rash (beach bum)to prove it. I know my jokes are lame, but hey, that's me!

Jackson was in hog heaven, he could dig and splash until his heart was content.

They even played together.

One evening we did a quick photo shoot on the beach. I am so pleased with how the pictures turned out. They may even be Christmas Card worthy. We will see what the coming months bring in terms of photos, but in my humble opinion, these might be hard to top. I have to say, having good equipment makes all the difference.

Here is a picture of Jackson's eye the day after his run in with the dining room table. It did get a little blue, but never turned into a full on black eye and it has healed perfectly. It helps that the cut was right on the crease of the eyelid. If you are going to slice your eyelid open, that is the best place to do it!

Unfortunately that didn't give us the urgent care pass that we were hoping for. We ended up going to another urgent care place at the beach with Jackson when he had a really bad cough. We were concerned, but then when he declined a cupcake at lunch we KNEW he was sick. Pretty painless and we were back on the beach the next day. Oh, and he is fine...a little antibiotics and he is back in fine form!


  1. Wow if those aren't the Christmas cards then I want you to send me copies. They need to be posted on my fridge!

  2. All GREAT pictures. Looks like it was a lot of fun! I especially like the one of Jackson walking up among the sea oats. They are both getting so so BIG! I agree with Chele -- if not a card, then I'd like copies, especially the two of them together in "nice clothes" on the beach, for the frig or a frame.

  3. I am glad you're back! I missed your posts. These are great pics and I am glad Jackson is OK. They are both so cute! Love, Cathy

  4. Great pictures. Soooo glad you are back!


  5. The outfits are adorable. Great pictures. I swear that my camera made me a better photographer.
    They look like they are having a ball. I love the ones of them playing together. I hope it stays that way.
    Oh and the picture of Miller with the big red pail...PRICELESS!
