We left on Friday right at nap time in the hopes that the kids would sleep most of the way there. We did take separate cars (duh - there's NO WAY we'd all fit in one!) but the kid's nap times are close enough that we figured it would work out well. We left Valdosta about 11:45 ish and got to the hotel about 3. LL only slept for about an hour on the way there, but it was enough to keep her a happy camper. We decided when we got there to just get everything unpacked and then get ready to go to dinner and postpone the beach until the next day.
Cool bridge/walkway over the street
We weren't super pumped about them sitting next to each other (really? two toddles eating within inches of eachother?), but they actually did really well and it was pretty cute for pictures. :)
The best shrimp EVER!
After dinner we walked outside to this outside boardwalk/pavilion area where we could let the kids run around for a little bit. This is also when LL saw the beach for the first time! We didn't take her down into the sand, but she did get to look at it. LL and Kye had a great time running around and we had an opportunity to try and take some family pictures.
Lorelai's first glimpse at the ocean!
Running like a crazy girl!
She usually sleeps in total darkness in her room, but I just left one lamp on since the rest of us were still awake, and she did fine. Then, when Matt and I went to bed we just turned it off and all was well. Once both Kye and LL were asleep, Emily headed over to our room (they brought a monitor for Kye) and we just hung out and talked while the boys walked across the street to get us ice cream. When they got back, we played Uno until we were all tired. It was fun, but pretty hard to keep everything at a whisper so that we didn't wake LL up.
It was a great day, but Matt and I were really looking forward to taking LL to the beach the next day!
Sounds like everybody had a GREAT time! I'm so jealous. We didn't make it to the beach this year. Your dress is SUPER cute! Where did you get it?
we're gonna have matching blog entries for a few days!!! :) BTW I second what Erin said...I love the dress too and Zach totally wants me to find one like it!
