While Daddy's away...

Louis had to go to India for work for a week (he left on Father's Day). So knowing that I needed assistance with these crazies, my parents were kind enough to let us overtake their house for a few days. 

Louis doesn't like mess...thus Papa lets Blake fingerpaint!!

Brookie lovin' the weather outside at school.

Over this past weekend our friend Kevin threw a Luau party at his barn. He was kind enough to get a party bus for us so we didn't have to worry about driving. The party was lots of fun, and of course in typical Kevin fashion, it rained (well actually that might be blamed on Louis and I since we bring rain to most celebrations!). We can't wait for the next one!!

Sean and I on the party bus

It is worth noting that my husband's somewhat hoarding tendencies paid off in this instance as his shirt is from a dance in HIGH SCHOOL. Haha. 

Barn is really an understatement for how nice this place Kevin built truly is

Sisters... Colleen told me she ran out to buy a Hawaiian dress so of course I followed suit!

MY FRIEND, Fruh in a Malic sandwich!!

She got upset that she accidentally flung water on herself

This morning when we woke up it was rainy, which only seems fitting since five years ago today Louis and I got married despite a crazy big storm that caused no power in the hotel. We have grown our family in the last five years and have moved and switch jobs and I am just so glad we have been on this journey together! We have made sure to take a picture of us each year on our anniversary so we can get this huge fun collection of photos as we grow older!!

Our Vacation: Hilton Head Island Part 4

We took formal family pictures one morning at sunrise and my kids weren't really in the mood, so I decided one night before dinner to do my own mini photo shoot. Last time we were at HHI we took similar pictures with Blake and they are truly some of my favorites so I thought I could make this a tradition. 

My awesome parents on their wedding anniversary

The only good brother/sister picture I got

Our Vacation: Hilton Head Island Part 3

My parents were so great with the kids and gave Louis and I a good amount of time to hang out without the kids. THANKS!! 

Me and the Bro

Blake insisted on climbing up the Harbour Town lighthouse. He walked up all 114 steps solo and we took a selfie to celebrate!!

Family pic attempt again on the boat.....

The boat is a great way to get Blake to sleep (he totally takes after me!!)

Brooke wanted to get in on the driving action (we were at a sandbar stopped, haha)

Captain Blake!!

Our Vacation: Hilton Head Island Part 2

Pool Time

The kids loved playing on their "boat" with Papa

Another attempt at a family picture

Sea Pines has trolleys that take you around the resort. We took the kids on them and it was a HUGE hit. They loved the wind and the openness.
