Family Vacation - Day 1 & 2 Beach Day

We returned home from our vacation on Saturday afternoon {6.8.13}.  We had a really great time but we are really happy to be home.  When your on vacation your schedule pretty much goes out the window, but while on this week long beach trip I tried to keep at least the baby on her schedule.  Towards the end of our trip the tantrums and lake of sleep were catching up with all of us.  After returning home I returned with chills and body aches and for the past 2 days have been trying to get better.  It's now Monday morning and I'm starting to feel better.

So here is a recap of our trip, I'll be posting about our beach trip everyday this week, enjoy!!

After months of waiting for this day to come, our family beach vacation had arrived.  The plan was to head to the beach after the girls got up from their naps.  But that morning started off amazing, my dad and step mom came over and we went out to breakfast.  After breakfast we headed to the park to play and fly the girls kite they got for Easter.  We had a great morning before heading home to put the girls down for a nap. While the girls napped, Jason & I cleaned out the truck, washed it and loaded all of our stuff up before the girls woke up.  The girls finally woke up and diapers were changed and we were ready to go.  The girls were really good on the 2 hour drive there, the baby slept almost the whole time.  After arriving at the beach we just stayed in watched some movies and ate pizza.  The first night I don't know if the girls were excited to be there or what but Kaylee fell asleep at 10:15pm and both Keira and Kendall finally fell asleep at 11:00pm and they all were up at 6:30am the next morning!

6:30am wake up call from my loving girls!  After finally falling asleep close to midnight the night before, both daddy & I weren't ready to be up at 6:30am.  So we told the girls they needed to lay in bed quietly, we finally rolled out of the bed around 7:15ish.  We got up and grandma made waffles and sausage for breakfast.  After breakfast, we got our bathing suits on and headed to the beach.  Beach days are always fun, I love watching the girls play in the sand and pretend they are making sand castles by just pouring sand into a big pile.  The baby was very cranky the whole day, she is teething and it was just a bad day for her.  She didn't get good naps in and I think that had something to do with it too.  We spent a couple hours at the beach playing, the baby finally fell asleep and we just hung out.  The weather was nice.  At about 1:30pm we loaded up the wagon to head back to the house for lunch and a nap.

After lunch the girls as well as the adults took a nice long nap.  Kendall's nap was a short one and when she woke up she still wasn't a happy camper.  I decided to put her amber necklace on her and gave her some medicine that didn't seem to be helping her earlier.  I was a little worried when grandma said we were gonna go out to dinner.  After everyone changed into warmer clothes we walked to the Mexican resturant.  The baby was really good.  During dinner grandma told the girls if they were good and ate dinner like big girls that we would go get cupcakes after.  The girls were AWESOME at dinner, so we walked over to the get cupcakes for everyone.  Grandma cut the cupcakes in half and everyone ate their cupcakes.  Kaylee only ate the frosting off of hers and Keira took a big bite of hers.  I decided that we would save the rest of the cupcake because it was so sweet.  The girls stayed up for a little bit doing a puzzle with grandma before heading downstairs for bed.  Jason and I headed to bed around 10:15pm, at 3:15am I heard someone getting sick {Keira was throwing up}.
