Our Vacation!

Hey guys! We are back from our vacation to Hilton Head Island, SC! Steven has a friend who has a timeshare there and they said we could use it this year so we did!

We left our house around 5 or 6 pm on Sunday, October 16 and drove straight there. It was a 9 hour drive so I was kinda nervous about how Trinity would do with that long of a ride. She did great! She slept the whole way there! We had to wake her up in North Carolina so we could eat.

You can tell by this picture that she was sleepy! But, after we ate, she went right back to sleep!

We arrived at our condo around 3am and unpacked then went to sleep and slept until 11 am! It was great to be able to sleep in!

Once we woke up and got ready, we headed out to the beach. The weather was perfect!

Trinity absolutely loved the beach! She didn't like the water but she loved the sand. She played in the sand a long time and would just run around chasing the birds!

She had a BLAST!

This was my sand man that I made. I think it kind of looks like I buried Trinity in the sand, don't it?

Tuesday was shopping day! We seriously shopped until we dropped! I didn't take any pictures but I got a ton of cute things for Baby 2!

Wednesday we went out and played mini golf. Steven had played before but I hadn't. We had a blast playing! Although I am NOT good at golf at all.

On the last game we played, our scores were, Trinity -7 (we let her just pick the ball up and put it in the hole), Steven +5, and me +33! Wow! I'm pretty awful at this game!

Something that we thought was really weird about Hilton Head, was that everything looks the same. All the houses and stores look alike. Which made it hard to find a McDonald's. See...

This was the McDonald's. Weird! I'm used to the "Golden Arches"!

Thursday we traveled to Charleston, SC. It's around 2 hours away from Hilton Head. We took a carriage tour through downtown and it was beautiful. This was one of the highlights for Trinity. When some one asks her about vacation, she either says, "I rode horse!" or "Water!"

This was the horse we rode. Trinity was so excited!

We also took a boat tour. This was really fun too!

When we all got on the boat and the tour started, the tour guide started playing the Gilligan's Island theme song. That was a little scary for me! Ha!

Trinity liked the boat ride but she was worn out so she fell asleep.

When we got back to Hilton Head Island, we went straight back to the beach to do Trinity's 2 year pictures. I haven't got those ready yet, so that will be a whole different post :)

Friday morning we woke up really early to go see the sun rise over the ocean. It was beautiful.

The rest of Friday we just kind of flopped around. Ha!

We got up at 4 am on Saturday and headed back home. We got home at 6 pm. We loved our vacation but it's great to be back home! Thank the Lord for a safe and happy trip!


  1. Sounds like an awesome vacay! Can't wait to see those beach pics.

  2. Okay, the pic of the the sand man scared me! LOL...I was like, is Trinity under there or did they somehow pull her out after they piled the sand on there? I'm so dingy but I'm glad to know she wasn't a part of that! LOL!
    So glad you all had a good time and can't wait to see the other pics.
