If you read my previous blog, I let you in on the fact that we’re on vacation at the beach (Kiawah Island,SC- one of our fave vacation spots w kids!) with our children and both sets of grandparents which is lovely. However the house we have rented for the week has no WiFi. I didn’t think this would bug me, but the fact that I CAN’T blog from the house is more annoying than if I didn’t WANT to. Catch my drift??
So where there’s a will, there’s a way!! I will blog! I’m starting to find that blogging is therapeutic and a way for me to go ahead and capture the fun moments in my life in pictures and words.
My husband and I found a cutesy little coffee shop right outside of the island where we could take a small breakfast break to be sans kiddos, enjoy a cup of jo, (one of my very favorite blogs that happened to go along with our activity of drinking coffee- you will get hooked on this interesting mommy blogger) and where they have WiFi- woo hoo!!!
This is a nice morning getaway because while my children have had a blast here at the beach so far, I can tell you, even though we’re on vacation, children can still be a challenge. Vacations to them don’t mean a break from temper tantrums, the “I wanna ____”, and sleeping in. No no no, quite the opposite, they become almost more needy when in a new location! My littlest muffin has decided she wants to wake at 6:30am EVERY morning- seems she doesn’t realize this is VACATION- you’re supposed to sleep in – apparently not. I guess she’s super excited to get to the beach and enjoy eating some more sand…insert pictures of my beach bunny Vivian below.
We have a few more days to go of our vacation so maybe she’ll give us a break with the early morning wakings…maybe. We will continue to try and wear her out at the beach which hopefully will result in longer naps and nights!!
I’m excited to share a look into our vacation with pictures so far, because my father in law took most of these pics with his nice fancy camera so the quality is much better than what you’re used to on my blog!
My 3 beautiful angels. Just had to share these close ups of each. I like that we captured happy vacation faces rather than melt down modes, which we have definitely already seen and experienced!
