vacation all i ever wanted

well we survived a vacation sans the husband. didn't think we would but we overcame! ahhhh... i love the smell of victory.

we took our yearly vacation to st. simons with the hooper family. only (big) difference this year was that the husband couldn't make it as he was traveling for work. i was 100% leery of going on a trip without him but the hooper's proved to be plenty of help.

i think the most difficult part of the entire vacation was eating out. hadley is a definite handful when it comes to restaurants, not a big fan of sitting in highchairs. i don't assume many 13 month olds are though. normally the husband and i take turns with her while the other eats. so that was about the hardest part. not a bad complaint to have, right.

the big kids (meaning conley, cailyn, caroline, and uncle brent) did a whole lot of bike riding. a whole lot. and brent thought he was going on vacation! we also did the beach one day, the pool another, and due to the rain, aunt melissa and  uncle brent took the older kids to the movies our last day. hadley and i missed out on some of the good parts for sure but i do believe she had a great first summer vacation at the beach. all of the kids, hads included, are complete fish in the water.

we all really enjoyed ourselves. already looking forward to next summer's vacation.
take a peek into our vacation through the pics i took with my handy iphone. i can't believe i did not take one single picture with my real camera.

So, who's the big girl with Caroline in the "girls before dinner" picture?
I am glad you all had such a good time together, although I know you all missed Phil. Can't wait for our tip!
