Beach Vacation

We just returned from our vacation. We spent last week in Garden City, South Carolina at the beach. We went with Kane's parents, his sister and her husband. It was a nice week of relaxing, reading, sleeping, swimming and eating! It was a great getaway for us and it was really fun watching Mara Kate discover water and waves! She was a bit hesitant at first, but warmed up to the water after the first few days. Here are some pictures of our trip.

This was our home sweet home for a week---"Compass Rose"

Mara Kate--all set for the sun!

Mara Kate actually took very good naps on the beach---the sound of the ocean must have had a calming effect on her.

Family Photo---one evening before heading out to dinner.

Kane's sand creation!

Another sand creation--a mermaid "carved out" by Kane's mom!

Pool time!

Mara Kate with her Tuie---this is near the end of the week once Mara Kate warmed up to the water. :)

A hole in 1! We went putt-putt golfing the last night at the beach---a good way to finish out the week. Kane was the biggest winner and I was the biggest loser. :) Oh well.

What fun in the sun you all had! Mara Kate looks fabulous in all her swimwear! How many swimsuits does she have!?!? I liked the black and white bikini! :) Can't wait to go swimming with the girls tomorrow! Mara Kate will be an old pro!

It's great to see ya'll doing so well. I still can't believe that kid actually belongs to a friend of mine though. She's growing quickly.
