We spent Labor Day week on the beach at Hilton Head. I’m not going to lie, Nick and I were both nervous about taking our first vacation with Carson. We definitely didn’t spend our days laying on the beach and reading like we used to, but we had SO much fun! After a few minutes of not liking the water, he decided that he loved the sand and waves and spent the entire week digging and “swimming.”
Lucky for us, Mom came along and helped chase our busy little guy around all day. He loved taking wagon rides on the beach and waving at the birds. He would normally be asleep when Mom wheeled him back and took a nap under the umbrella.
Carson loved digging in the sand and thought it was hilarious when some of it ended up in my hair. He also liked “throwing” the football with Nick and going on walks with Gigi. He’s a fan of the beach just like his parents!
Unfortunately, I had a Crohn’s flare-up and spent most of the week sick, so my plans for morning runs and family bide rides definitely didn’t happen. I had to take it easy, which was frustrating, but Mom and Nick spent all day entertaining Carson and I played when I could. They are the best.
We are already planning another trip for next year!
