MC's First Beach Trip - Summer Vacation 2013

We took MC to Hilton Head Island, SC for her first trip to the beach! BD and I went to HHI two years ago for vacation and had a great time, so we knew it would be a good place for MC to experience the beach.

She loved the beach! We went down to the beach in the early mornings and again in the late afternoon each day. She played in the sand with some beach toys and splashed in the ocean waves as they came on shore.In the afternoons we could usually find big holes dug in the sand where other kids had played, and she loved playing in the holes - crawling out and sliding back down to the bottom.


We did some sightseeing to other parts of the island we didn't see last time we visited - saw the famous lighthouse at the Harbour Town marina, ate at the Salty Dog Cafe in South Beach, and toured the Shelter Cove area.

The condo complex had a pool so we also spent some time relaxing at the pool.

And a couple of rainy afternoons we just played inside the condo.

Towards the end of the week we dressed up for dinner and took some family pictures. We actually ended up with take-out at the condo instead of going out for dinner (wait time at the restaurant way too long for MC), but we did get some good pictures!

We had a fantastic vacation, and MC was a great traveler, so we're already thinking ahead to next year's trip!

On the drive home we stopped and had a roadside picnic for early lunch so everyone (Kip included) could take a break and stretch their legs.
