We just returned from our first official family vacation, and we had a wonderful time! We started our vacation at Tidewater (Cherry Grove/N. Myrtle Beach) where we took walks, played on the beach, swam in the pool, and did a lot of "chillaxing." This was Aydan's first time at the beach, and she loved it! She was not at all afraid of the ocean, but instead crawled right into it when we put her down. She also liked to "jump" over the waves, which consisted of hiking her leg up to step over every wave that came to her. It was so cute! As you can see from the picture above, she especially liked eating the sand...to mom's horror! The best part was getting to spend uninterrupted time together. We rarely spend time together with just the three of us, and it was really nice to hang out and relax together as a family!
On Sunday, Micah, Amanda, Kylee, and Camdyn joined us! We went to restaurants, shopped at the outlets, played at the beach, and had fun juggling three different nap schedules! It was lots of fun! Amanda made the girls matching shirts for beach photos...aren't they precious?!?
From there, we traveled to Daytona Beach, FL to join Matt's family on their annual beach vacation. MiMi and Ganddaddy were very happy to have Aydan there and spent most of their time playing with her. We hung out on the beach, went bowling, and shopped. We had a great time!
