Summer Vacation Part I: Seabrook Island, SC

Would you ever turn down a free trip to the beach? I almost did, but I am soooo glad we ended up going!! My mom rented a condo on Seabrook Island, SC, which is about 45 minutes from Charleston, and invited us to come. Now, Charleston is one of my favorite cities in the US, but I was feeling so overwhelmed with the end of the school year, Cameron's birthday party, visitors and everything else summer was throwing at us, that I felt like I needed that week to be home to get stuff done.

Then I had my last week at school and decided that what I really needed was a week at the beach. :) So, we booked our flights, packed our bags and Cam and I were off to SC for 6 days.

We had access to the beach, the pool, bikes, shops and was such a wonderful week and my mom took Cam a lot so I could actually relax (and get some sun).

Our trip started off a little rough with delays on the tarmac and Cam not wanting to go to sleep, but he finally did and everyone around me was such a huge help!! (It's amazing how helpful complete strangers are when you are travelling alone with a baby! I was stunned.)

Ready for take-off

Keeping entertained during one of our many delays

As you can see, Cameron had plenty of attention and we all enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. It was such a nice start to our summer together, but we did miss Chad while we were gone!!

P.S. Stay tuned for a guest post on travelling with kids...I'm sure we could all write our own post, but some extra help is always welcomed! 


  1. So fun!! We live in Charleston now!! I am loving it so far! So glad you guys had a great vacay!!

  2. Glad you went!! Looks like you had a great time! The beach helps everything ;)
