Hilton Head Island 2017

We made our annual beach trip to Hilton Head Island - our first beach vacation as a family of 4! It is a lot of work to take two little kids to the beach, but we had fun and made lots of memories.

Both of our girls really like the ocean and the sand, so we spent quite a bit of time on the beach during the week.





We also spent some time doing other activities. We went to the lighthouse and the fun playground in Harbor Town. For the second year in a row, BD and MC climbed the steps to the top of the lighthouse.


We toured the petting zoo at Lawton Stables and fed some of the animals.


We visited our favorite ice cream shop on the island. Well, MC and I did; GL had fallen asleep in the car, so BD kept driving her around while MC and I went in to eat ice cream. We talk about this place and look forward to this ice cream all year long.


One morning we went to the children's museum, which is a highlight of the trip for MC.


The museum has an awesome craft room, and MC spent a lot of time in there making tons of art!


GL also had fun exploring the baby area.


We played a round of miniature golf.




More beach pictures.








One afternoon we loaded up the girls in the beach wagon and walked down to Coligny Plaza to shop for souvenirs. Despite the look on GL's face in this picture, she loved riding in the wagon with MC. This was really fun for me because I distinctly remember walking along while BD pulled MC in the wagon last summer (2016) and talking about how next summer (2017) she'd be able to hold Baby Sister and ride in the wagon together -- and just like that...it happened!


Looking at the hermit crabs in the souvenir shop - another thing that we talk about and look forward to all year long!


We also spent a ton of time swimming at the pool in our condo complex.
