just got back from vacation…well a few days ago…but still recovering….it was wonderful!

lets see…….over 450 pictures….where do i begin?!

i guess i’ll start at the beginning…..our 15 hour drive.

a car packed for a week on the beach and enough snacks and activities to keep the kiddos busy during the trip.

the iPods made the car really quiet at times.

we saw the Christmas tree tied to the roof in New Jersey….too funny.


and lots of traffic in Delaware, Maryland and DC…..not funny.


all in all…it really wasn’t a bad drive….we have had worse….like the year Caroline got car sick…for about 10 hours of the trip….the kiddos have become great little travelers….it went something like this……snack, coloring, iPod…..snack, craft, iPod……repeat for 15 hours….the kids had a lot of fun with car bingo and learning about the states we went through. About midnight we stopped at a hotel and got some sleep, with only a few hours left for the morning.

in the morning we were able to check in early and enjoy the beach all day!!!

i know was the weirdest thing!! only in new jersey! i think my hubby thought it was weird that i had to take a picture of it!

Steph, we went to Folly Beach which is 15 minutes from Charleston, ride pictures and sleeping kids...even better when i catch them asleep in the car!!! the ipods really came in handy this year.
