Tybee Island, GA

We took the kids to the beach, you know, to relax. We didn't really relax, and taking a 2 year old to the beach didn't turn out so well. You'd think we know this type of thing the second time around. The trip was exhausting, and to recap it makes me tired. Here are the highlights:

We got a flat tire on the way down, an hour south of our house. The kids didn't know we were stopped for 45 minutes! They looked out the window and saw cars whizzing by, so I guess they assumed we were still driving.

Eli didn't like the beach, nor sleeping.

On the last day, Lucy discovered that she DID, LIKE, THE BEACH!

We rented a really cool house.

Eli ran away from us the entire time.

Lucy slept well!

The night before we left to come back home, a huge storm woke every one up. The power was out, Eli was very scared. Finally, at 7am we all got up and packed up in the dark. As we were pulling away from the house, the power came back on. Right?

We ate out for breakfast at The Waffle House. I brought in a stale ole pancake for Lucy and had them warm it up on their griddle.

The End.

Thank you for being so easy to potty train.  You took on the task with serious intensity and did NOT want to mess it up.  After the first day, you really didn't even care if I gave you a reward jelly bean or not (but your sister sure did).  You'll go anywhere, Target, Grandpa's, school, whatever.  You don't really care, just need to do your business and get on with playing.  While potty training, you decided you love to wear Lucy's nightgowns, and we let you.  You even like to wear her swim suits, but I saved those photos for another day.

You are serious about your ice cream consumption.  The only item on your list better than ice cream is chocolate.  Put the two together, and get ready for the most excited little 2 year old you have ever seen.

Lucy's room is your favorite place to be, even if she doesn't agree.  I let you play in there as much as you like when she is at school.  It's only fair.

What's a two year old without froggy boots on a warm day?

You love those little frogs and it takes all your will power not to reach your grubby little hands in there and swipe one for some serious fun. You call them a family, which melts my heart.

The Gummy Bear That Never Ends

Eli and Lucy sharing the biggest gummy bear on earth.  Eli thinks girls nightgowns are appropriate attire for everyone, anytime.  I forsee kilts in his future.
