Beach bound!

In just a few days we're packing up and hitting the road for our first family vacation! We'll spend two nights in Wildwood, NJ and we can't wait. The trip falls over my 30th birthday, so I'm extra excited to be spending this milestone enjoying some fun and sun with the people I love most. Grandma and Grandpa will be joining us as well, and we're staying in Joe's great-aunt and great-uncle's hotel while we're there. We can't wait to introduce Charlie and Lily to the beach, the boardwalk, and the awesome Wildwood tram car. We'll post plenty of pictures and videos when we get back :)

Oh - and if you have a second, please VOTE for Charlie in the Gerber Photo Search contest! You can vote daily! (We entered Lily's picture too, but for some reason it looks like she'll be in next month's round of voting instead of this one.)

Charlie and Lily have been practicing their splashing skills in their new water table before hitting the beach. Lily is particularly good at drenching everyone.
Charlie has been gathering up some books to read poolside on our trip. This is one of his favorites, given to him by Nurse Sue when he was in the NICU.
Bye everyone! I'm off to be a Beach Bug! See you soon!

Have fun at the beach!! My 13 month old loved it, and I'm sure Charlie and Lily will too! It's so much fun to enjoy these adventures from the eyes of your own little ones!!

Can't wait to see pictures of your beach babies!!

Hey, Charlie could win 25K college cash -- he's got 135 votes, but Jackson's got 199 and Kayli has 228 -- I just voted and will vote every day. Not just for the money -- cause he is the cutest!
