Ahh the sweet life

After 6 plus weeks of us having a summer baby and not once stepping foot on the beach with her, we figured it was time for a little getaway! The 3 of us went to Myrtle Beach for a few nights to relax and enjoy the sunshine, beach, porch sitting and each other:) We could not have asked for more beautiful weather and being 1 block from the ocean, we had the nicest COOL breeze in the am & pm.

We had the car packed down to say the least and Matt even got to use his new back rack that attaches to his trailer hitch- oh the little things that get us excited. It's crazy how much stuff you need & use for someone so darn tiny- we were afraid to leave anything, so we pretty much just brought everything! We even bought her a new travel swing to make the transition a bit easier:)

We were a bit nervous about traveling with Molls- how would she do in the car for 2 hours? How would she sleep away from home? How would WE handle the change? But alas, all was wonderful!! She slept like a champ in her pack n play for the first time ever, too. Whew. Since she adores bath time so much, I think we're now convinced she is a water baby..cannot wait until she is a bit bigger and can play at the beach!

It's so funny how our original idea of taking her to Disney World in September was very quickly changed once we realized what exactly an infant entails, how much of an ordeal it would be to tote her (and all her stuff) around, get her naps in, keep us sane, etc. Instead we opted for a few days close by and it was awesome. Think we all needed a change of pace and to do nothing but have fun!

We had a great time crusin' on the golf cart, playing in the water, going to the pool and of course people watching on the porch. We had a few outings and got to hang out with GiGi & Poppy a bit, which of course Mollie (and us) loved!

I'm excited that we're so close to our beach house and we know we'll be going there even more now than we have before. It's such a perfect place for kids to play and so many fun things to do. Perfect home away from home!
