Hilton Head, SC Take 1

I may or may not have taken over 1000 images during our week at the beach.

If I shot film?

That’d be about two million three hundred seventy five thousand dollars worth of shots.

I haven’t even went through one third of them yet, but these are the ones I spotted right away.

During our first two days there we had that lovely little tropical storm roll through.

Technically, it was about 45 minutes south of us, but it was mighty windy and cloudy where we were.

Since it really only rained while we slept, I didn’t keep the girls from the beach…although, I nearly watched them blow away in the 30 mile an hour winds.

*insert Mom of the Year Award here*

Also, the girls were right back to their beach antics right off.

Emily and her Jacques Cousteau-ness with her sand bucket and shovel.

Allison with her running back and forth in and out of the waves.

Caroline following me and the big girls around everywhere.

They also spent hours upon hours racing each other along the beach. The big girls were so cute and sweet getting “distracted” while running and letting Caroline win.

Also, Caroline spent so much time boogie boarding….those images will be coming soon.

So! Here’s my first batch of a gazillion beach images.

By the way, the first two are from when we survived our first hurricane (tropical storm, but whatever). Yes, there is a line going slap through her head, but guess what?!


*this is how I roll*

The third image is Caroline’s good-lord-for-the-love-of-all-things-chocolate-will-you-please-stop-taking-my-picture face.
