Happy Memorial Day

Standard

What a great weekend!  Savannah and I left for the beach on Thursday after pre-school and headed on down the road.  It took us about 3 1/2 hours to get there.  She did awesome on the ride down.  She slept for about an hour and a half which was nice.  It’s so funny when I think back on all our trips to the beach and how it use to take us 4 plus hours to get there. No stops is nice!

We woke up Friday morning had breakfast and headed to the beach. Savannah and I packed our stuff and were on our way.  She LOVES the beach me not so much.  Sand is no friend of mine but I do it cause she loves it.  It wasn’t to crowded on the beach which was nice we ended up sitting next to a couple named Wilma & Barry.  They had brought their grandchildren Lily & McKenzie to the beach to play and you know Savannah doesn’t meet a stranger so she jumped right in with the girls and played while I chit chatted with Nana & PawPaw.. lol  At one point Savannah was actually calling them Nana & PawPaw

It was a beautiful day we had a brief rain shower but it passed quickly we enjoyed our day on the beach then headed in for lunch and nap..  It was perfect!

 

 

 

 

 

 

The rest of the gang headed crowd headed down Friday evening. Daddy, Justin, Jordan, Carrie, Shane, Carson, Caroline & Campbell Jean..  Yes it was a house full and it was GREAT! Savannah had the best time hanging out with the kids she wanted to go home with them after the trip was over . Friday night we ordered take out and just hung out around the house..  The kids played and Savannah actually stayed up till after nine.. Ugh..I’m a stickler for a schedule but since we were at the beach I had to let it go.

Saturday morning we were up early fed the kids breakfast then it was off to the beach.  It is so much fun watching them play together.  So glad they could spend this time with each other.

After a day on the beach it was nap time for a the little kiddies so we headed back to the house.. The worst part of the beach lugging all that stuff back to the house sand everywhere..ugh..

Saturday night was low-key we made it a mexican night and had burritos’ and stayed in.  Between the beach and the kids we were all exhausted..lol  Saturday night Savannah, Caroline & Campbell decided that they all wanted to sleep together so they all loaded up in my room on Savannah’s air mattress.  Now keep in mind Savannah typically goes to bed at 9 and at this point it was 9:30 and believe me she likes her sleep.  But we let them try it because hey it’s the beach no rules right.  Well 15min later Caroline comes out.  “They won’t go to sleep” so she heads downstairs to her room.  30min later Carrie goes in to check on them and they are still awake just talking away and per carrie the conversation went something like this.. Savannah: “no Campbell we have to go to sleep”..lol  Savannah likes her sleep.  Needless to say Campbell went to her room and Savannah was asleep in 2 minutes.

After the babies were asleep we sat out on the porch had a glass of wine and got caught up.  We love the Dunlap’s.

Sunday was pretty much the same as Saturday. Beach Nap Bed.  Good Times.

Monday we got up packed up our stuff and headed home.  Savannah of course wanted to go with the Dunlap’s but alas she has to ride with her mommy.  It was a great trip home and when we pulled in the drive way she said “nooooo not this house I want the beach house”..  Me to baby me too.
