Vacation with a two and four year old might need to be redefined. Or it needs a new word all together! It wasn’t exactly restful, but we’re so glad we made this last minute trip to Pawley’s Island, South Carolina. We decided last year to forego vacation until our adoption was complete to save the dollars, but some quality time as a family of four was exactly what we needed before everything changes in a few months.
Charlotte wanted to be at the beach the entire time, and Brooks preferred the pool. Okay, he hated the ocean. So we divided and conquered. Or is that divided and survived?
I kid. We did have some great moments all together. We normally stay in a condo, but this last minute trip was because of a great deal at a hotel right on the beach. It turned out to be a gift that we were all in one little room together. Brooks slept outside of a crib for the first time ever and I got to snuggle and cuddle him at nap time and night time. And Charlotte got what she asks for every night, me to stay by her side all night long.
