Beach Vacation 2014

Vacation.

Such a lovely idea, no?

A few weeks ago, we packed up our gang and headed to a place we’d never been– the beaches of Pass Christian, MS. Neither of our children had ever seen the ocean before, so we were excited and nervous about how they would respond.

Honestly, I had pretty low expectations for how relaxing the trip would be because we were bringing small children along. We met my sister along with her husband and daughter at my brother-in-law’s family’s beach house. I must say, the whole trip was a welcomed surprise.

July was a crazy month for us at the end of a busy season, so having a chance to relax with people we love was such a gift!

Wonderful weather (cool and sometimes overcast when it was predicted to rain each day). Happy, napping children every day. A practically private beach. Total flexibility to change our plans according to how the kiddos were faring. I can see why people love beach vacations, especially with young kids!

We dined out one night, visited a local playground and bookstore, and one day rode with a fisherman out to Ship Island, which was a breathtakingly beautiful and uninhabited beach island. Other than that, we just stayed in our little corner of beach house, pool, and ocean. Bliss.

Overall, the perfect getaway. It really is too bad you can’t be on vacation all the time 😉
