HHI 2010

We had an awesome time in Hilton Head this year and I have lots of photos to share.  Last year, when we returned home from vacation, I wrote down a quick “Top 10” list of my favorite moments.  I’ve looked back on it lots of times this past year and it’s made me smile. So this year, I made a “Top 10” again, in the hopes of evoking a smile, especially when we’re up to our eyeballs in snow this winter.  In no particular order, here is my HHI Top 10…

#1. Laughing, a lot.  Life has been so busy with a newborn and three kids, I loved just laughing.

#2. Watching my girls jump in the pool.  I was so proud of their bravery and Anna cracked me up.  She would stand at the edge,waiting for me to catch her, pointing her little finger at me saying, “Are you ready?  (Except in “Anna talk” it sounds like “weady”) Weady, mommy, Weady?  Weady?”  🙂

#3. Peeking at my boy while he slept in the pack-n-play in the room we shared.

#4. Breathing, relaxing, calmly holding each of my children, at separate times, on the balcony while looking at the ocean.

#5. Going out to dinner.  Okay, this one was a stressful memory, but SO our life right now.  Everyone HUNGRY, baby tired, hot, eat-as-fast-as-you-can, hurry the girls along, minimize crying, leave restaurant ASAP with meals that either a) went uneaten, or b) were not enjoyed…Also a nice reminder of why we like to stay in for dinner on vacation.

#6. Spending the week and some good quality time with my parents.

#7. Inside jokes that we ran into the ground…i.e. Cate’s “You’ll freak your head off!”, or Anna’s “It’s the bestiest as a shooting star!”, or Dad’s, “That’s a good little program!”

#8. Holding my baby boy while he slept, on the beach.  Pure heaven.

#9. My surfer girls.  The girls LOVED the ocean this year!  And watching Corey play with the kids too.

#10. My birthday on the beach.  My kids showered me with love, my Mama made me dinner, my husband took me out for a beer. Excellent.
