I know this is incredibly late, but I finally had time to post some pictures from our vacation in Hilton Head Island.
We were there for a week and stayed in a really nice vacation rental house. Here are some of us sitting on the back porch watching deer come forage in the neighbor’s yard. As they watched they realized why these deer waited in the yard so patiently. Someone finally came out of the house and fed them! And then here’s a picture of our entire group on the front steps.
We were within walking distance (or a very short bike ride of the beach). The bikes were wonderful as even Elise and Will could ride along. Everyone enjoyed the beach. Where else can you crawl around in sand in your pajamas, eat sand, make huge sand castles, play in a pool you make yourself, and chase early morning seagulls. The “big” kids also enjoyed playing beach soccer and swimming in the ocean. Though the one day that almost everyone got into the ocean, they all came back out pretty quickly when someone felt a fin glide past their leg. 🙂
Lots of other exciting things happened as well. Will learned how to crawl. We took lots of bike rides to shopping centers (and even met some talking parrots). John, Herbie, and our friend Lay went deep-sea fishing. Some of us even took a day trip to the beautiful Savannah, Georgia. It was a great relaxing trip and a great time with family and friends.
