We’ve been at Wild Dunes on the Isle of Palms, South Carolina this week.
My parents and Todd’s parents are here with us and we are just having the most fun with everyone. The boys are so happy to have all of their “people” in one spot.
Hudson hasn’t complained or whined about a single thing since we got here. He even fell asleep in a beach chair for a little bit on Sunday. He absolutely loves the ocean and the beach.
We did have to remind him a few times to take a break to warm up. The ocean isn’t exactly warm right now.
And of course he loves just throwing himself into the swimming pool over and over again as he jumps in and climbs back out. And then jumps in and climbs back out.
We walked out to the beach early yesterday morning and noticed that some turtle rescue volunteers had discovered a sea turtle’s nest of eggs, and they were digging up the eggs to relocate them. I had heard about this before, but it was really exciting to see it in person and see all the turtle eggs. The bucket had 38 eggs in it and they were still digging up more!
We’re cooking favorite meals, eating lots of yummy summer food and just enjoying the company.
I have a tendency to forget reality when I’m on vacation like this and then start to worry that I’m forgetting something important or neglecting something. But I am trying to remind myself to just relax and not worry about anything at home this week.
We celebrated Hudson’s birthday in a very simple way. No big party or theme. Just a dinosaur cake, bow tie fiesta, and presents! I loved every second of it. We put three little candles in an Eggo waffle for Hudson’s birthday breakfast. He was impressed.
It has also rained a lot since we’ve been here. It’s a little disappointing because I want to make the most of my time here, but maybe making the most of my time here involves stretching out in a hammock and listening to the rain fall. And reading more and more out of Twilight.
And I completely melt when a certain little boy climbs up into the hammock with me and whispers, “I love you, too, Mommy.”
