Ocean Shores

Last weekend we headed to Ocean Shores with my mom, Justin's brother Blaise, our niece Gianna, my brother Ty and his girlfriend Katie. We had quite the crew and had a great time. This was Izzy's first trip and she did fabulous. We packed everything in the house I think. Justin and I had to take both cars just because of all the baby stuff and to get the kids and Roy there too. We love going to the Ocean and have gone every summer since Justin and I have been together. The boys have such a great time and Roy LOVES going too. The weather was overcast and drizzly on Saturday and Sunday... total bummer. I was looking forward to beautiful weather. During the day on Saturday, we hung out at the beach and played in the sand. All the kids built a huge sandcastle. I didn't get a picture but my brother did on his camera. We also broke out the kites. The boys are old enough now to fly them on their own. They are the two string kites that do dips and turns, so they are kind of difficult to fly. Saturday night, we did the big fire down at the beach at had the ultimate smores! Costco sells these candy packs with Hershey bars, Kit Kats, Recess Peanut Butter Cups, etc. so we bought it and tried the different candy on the smores...so yummy and something different! Everyone except Justin, me, the boys, Izzy and Roy left Sunday and we stayed another night. Of course Monday's weather was beautiful and we played on the beach some more. Izzy slept for the majority of the time when we were on the beach. When she was awake, Justin took her out to the water. She had big eyes as she was taking it all in he said. All in all we had a fantastic time and we survived Izzy's first trip. We love going places, so many more to come! The boys buried Gianna in the sand and turned her into a mermaid!

What a fun family trip! Once you get over the hurdle of the first road trip than all the other ones are a piece of cake. I know what you mean about packing the house, we did that our first trip to the ocean but now it seems like clockwork.
