Vacation Pics: Part I

Breakfast at Chick-fil-A: 5:30am(our time), 15 hrs. on the road, 4 hrs. to go!! My cousin Wendy lives in Valdosta, GA.... so we met for breakfast there before we pushed through the last part of the drive. It was so much fun to catch up with her and the kids!

Sarah with her Cheer Bear

Emily looking a little rough after a long night in the car : )

The boys had a great time hanging out with Nolan in the Chick-fil-A playland! (plus, they got to go in their pjs!!)

Me and Wendy and all the kids : )
First day at the resort:
The kids LOVED the whirlpool tub!

Sarah cracking up at her goofy Dad

Sportin' the "sales pitch" hats!
Funny story... The 1st morning we were there we had to go to a time share sales pitch. We were dreading it, knowing the kids would be miserable. It actually was pretty entertaining as they gave out all kinds of free stuff( hats, beach balls..) and they even brought out mini cakes for each of the boys' recent b-days. When we were walking back to our room afterwards the boys said, " Mom, Dad, this is the BEST vacation ever!!"

The Beach:
The girls were so funny at the beach... just once again revealing their polar opposite personalities.
Sarah is our princess. She barely would get her feet wet, constantly brushing the sand off of her, refused to sit on the ground and would only squat down to play with the sand toys. She was completely content to just watch everyone else.
Emily on the otherhand was crazy. She was covered in sand the entire day, throwing it, digging in it, running into the water and thoroughly enjoying the waves crash into her. It was a perfect place for this adventurous, curious 1 yr.old to wear herself out : )
The boys had a blast!! They loved trying to "surf" the waves on their bellies. They didn't even complain when it came time to eat pb&js on the beach... I pretty sure we got sand with every bite : )

Daddy and Caleb
Baseball... even at the beach!
Zachary was so excited that someone in Florida named a restaurant after him!
