Our summer is off to a fantastic start! We went on our very first official family vacation that wasn’t to visit more family! It was so perfect, too. We met up with Pierre’s sister and her family in Myrtle Beach for 5 days. She has two kids, 10 and almost 9, and my kids were beyond excited to spend time with them and get to know them better. I mean, perfect if you count the 6 of us sleeping in the same room for 4 nights and I’m using the word “sleeping” very loosely. Pierre and I slept nothing, the twins were hit or miss and the baby slept near nothing. Eva was the only one that got decent sleep the whole trip. We let her skip her naps so she could play and spend more time with her cousins and needless to say she crashed every single night. I remember one night in particular when she stood up and declared her day to be over and she was going to bed, thank you very much. I’ll let these photos tell more of the story.
We let the kids eat whatever they wanted, do whatever they wanted and watch whatever they wanted. That means snack for almost every meal, run around like crazy and play Frozen (not exaggerating) FOUR times a day.
It was exhausting and I cannot wait to do it again!
