Our week at Hilton Head was peaceful and relaxing...well, at least as relaxing as it can be with three kids. ;-) We had a couple stormy weather days, but enjoyed plenty of sunny days at the shore. This was a trip filled with sand digging and looking through tidepools. As I watched the occasional teenager go down the beach (Hilton Head is really a quieter family beach.) I realized that the days spent looking at crabs and sand dollars will eventually change. Dave and I swam more in the heated pool than the ocean (see Dave in the sweatshirt in that photo with Grace below?), but the kids did not seem to mind the water temperature.
Grace on our beach walk the first morning. A huge thunderstorm came in not long after this photo. The kite surfers were out in force on the beach.
On our way into church on Sunday. It must be a miracle...all three in one photo! Yes, that is the infamous orange dress Grace was supposed to wear at Easter.
Grace spent most of the afternoon hauling water for her sand projects...or helping Jordan and William with their projects. She seemed to enjoy the chore so I left the questionable tasking alone!
My two littles splashing in the tide pools.
William headed for the surf at full speed. I feel fortunate to have caught the look on his face at that moment.

Jordan with the boogie board. I can't believe she will be finishing 5th grade soon. Next spring break will find me with a middle schooler.
