Beach Trip, Baby!

Happiness is...

Each year, we take a family trip to a beach in South Carolina.  This year there was a smaller group because most of our nieces and nephews were already back to school.  Nonetheless, we had a great time with my parents, Andy's parents, and other family. 

It's island time!

On the first day, Philip started crawling right for the ocean, but after we let him get his feet wet, he steered clear of it.  He spent hours playing in the sand though. 

Philip kept his "staff" busy making sand castles and bringing him endless buckets of water to play in.

He loved getting his hands washed with his watering can.

The timing of our vacation was perfect.  We missed both the earthquake and Hurricane Irene!  We did have one rainy day and some pretty big waves as the hurricane passed us. 

My very talented Mom made him this outfit.

It's all good with Grandma. 
It's even better to have both Grandma's in the same house!

Same people, plus Andy's Mom, Aunt and Uncle

Andy's aunt is from Boise, and UGA played Boise State this past weekend. There was lots of talk about the game all week, so I had to put Philip in his jersey on Aunt Mim's last day. 
No comment on the results of the game...

Philip got a play tent from his great aunt for his birthday. 
He had a great time playing in it all week. 
Herbie is now enjoying it as well!

First taste of ice cream

 Last time out on the sand (there used to be stairs here)

Let's get a move on, Dad!

On our way home, we stopped at Andy's brother's house. 
Philip had fun playing the piano with his Uncle Danny.

We had a wonderful trip and are so thankful to have the opportunity to go on vacation with our family each year.  Thanks Grandma and Grandpa!
