As the saying goes… all good things must come to an end. We had a really great week in Hilton Head, SC. I have finally finished going through and editing the pictures and am ready to recap the rest of our week. A special thanks to Grandma and Grandpa Minion for letting us use your condo! We had such a great time.
Thursday: We had another great day at the beach and the decathlon continued with sand castle building, jump rope, and bocci ball. Kyle and I enjoyed celebrating our fourth anniversary with family. For dinner, we went to Hilton Head Brewing Company. It turned out to be a really fun place with live music, happy hours specials, and yummy food. Jacob’s wings were so hot that his lips were on fire, and he tried to cool them down with ice cubes. (see picture :)) After dinner, we headed to Sea Pines Plantation to check out the lighthouse and the shops. They now charge you to go up the lighthouse (lame!), and there was a guy singing really annoying kids songs. We managed to get a couple of decent family pictures and got out of there.
Friday: Our last day…we took another morning bike ride to the community park. The boys played some hoops, and the decathlon continued with a bike obstacle course competition. Back at the beach we played some more bocci ball, soccer, and had a beach scavenger hunt. For dinner we tried a new place – Pazzo Italian Cafe. The bread and olive oil was amazingly delicious. Everyone had mixed reviews on their meals, but we decided we would be willing to try it again with some of us ordering differently. After dinner, we made one final stop at Coligny for ice cream and fudge. We also headed to the beach to get some more pictures. Unfortunately, my camera fogged up due to the change in temperature. We played with sparklers while we waited for it to adjust. After our photo shoot, it was time to pack up, but not before we announced the decathlon winners! Everyone got to drop their three lowest scoring events. We decided Kyle couldn’t win since he organized it, so congrats to Jacob and Dad!! They won the much desired owl made of seashells trophy.
Here are the part two pictures:
Saturday was a long day of driving for everyone. Kyle and I are back home safe and sound. Sunday we hung all of the pictures in our baby girl’s nursery. It’s almost done! We are just waiting on our rocking chair, and then I will post pictures. We love it! All we need is our baby girl to arrive.
Next up: Gramma, Aunt Carol, and Marsha visit!
