We’re just back from Hilton Head, SC where we spent our first family vacation. It was a wonderful week of sun, sand, swimming, and lazing about. It was so much fun to be able to introduce Joseph to the ocean. He was fearless and crawled right into the surf. He laughed and splashed at the waters edge and didn’t even try to eat the sand! He also loved the swimming pool at our condo and never wanted to get out. Lots of playing on the shallow steps and “swimming” about. Shawn’s mom came with us and she was most helpful with entertaining Joe on the long car ride and “babysitting” after he went to sleep so Shawn and I could walk over to the Salty Dog and so we could sip on a Dark’n Stormy and listen to a little music. I’m already dreaming of our return.
