Over Labor Day weekend, we were able to head to Hilton Head for the long weekend. Oh boy, is going to the beach with a toddler and a newborn an adventure and a half! Thankfully, my parents were there to step in when needed. Hampton slept in the pnp in their room, so Jordan and I were able to get a few extra minutes of sleep each morning before Colton decided it was time for everyone to be up. That in itself was so nice! We spent Saturday down at the beach most of the day but not in the ocean. Hampton is terrified still. It was so pitiful, and after much begging and coercing, we finally gave up on the idea of him getting in-or anywhere close-to the water. I hope this changes next year! We had a beachfront condo with a pool right out the back door, so he did get a lot of swim time in, which made him happy. He is fearless when it comes to the pool! Colton (let's not forget about him) napped down at the beach for hours, slept great at night, and just went with the flow. He's such a good baby! Sunday was a little rainy, but we didn't let that stop us from having fun. Hampton and Jordan played in the rain, found a bunny, and ate boiled peanuts out on the patio w/ G-dad. The afternoon was pretty windy, so we had to keep Colton inside--which meant that we traded off being down at the beach. That part of vacationing with little ones isn't so fun, but it is better than not getting away at all! On the way home, we hit the outlets. Hampton racked up on some fall/winter clothes. He was in desperate need b/c he was going to have to go naked once the weather cooled down!
