Folly Beach, SC

Adelyn will be 15 months old in just a few days! Seth just said the other day that he wishes he could freeze her at this stage. She is so much fun! I think the neatest thing to watch is her vocabulary grow. She wants to know what everything is and attempts to repeat it. Sometimes it's pretty close! And sometimes she remembers it and few days later she'll say it again! It's awesome! My ABSOLUTE favorite thing she does is gets a book and walks backward until she can plop down in my lap. I will drop anything to read a book to that girl.

We went to Folly Beach (about 30 minutes away from downtown Charleston) for a week with my parents and brother. This was the first vacation we have been on with my parents. We had such a good time! We rented a 4 bedroom beachfront condo. Adelyn loved the ocean and sand! She ran right to it from day one. The sand did not bother her one bit. She loved putting seashells in her bucket. Seth dug her a hole and she would sit in it for an hour! There was a pool at the condo, but I think she preferred the ocean. I got to see lots of old friends. It was nice to have the time to get some good visits in with my friends that live there. Two of my friends just happened to be visiting Charleston at the same time. Of course, I got some downtown Charleston shopping in! My mom and I spent an afternoon doing the King Street Crawl and Seth and I went shopping for art (we're looking for something to hang above our mantle, but didn't find "IT"). I got some nice morning walks in and Seth and I did an 8 mile bike ride. All in all, everyone had fun...but no one enjoyed it as much as Ms. Adelyn!

Adelyn is getting her molars in. Boy has that been a doozy! There have been a few nights/eeeeaaaarly mornings where she's up crying. Bless her heart. They must be killers! I will be so ready for them to finish popping through!

Laura and Janie came in town for a couple nights. It was great to watch Janie and Adelyn together (they're about 2 weeks apart). They don't really play together, but they do interact some. We went to the pool, the mall playground, and ate out.

Coming up next....Quebec (Seth's next to last race at Trois-Rivieres) and Montana with Seth's family!! We leave in a few days! Seth is leading the points for the championship, so we are keeping our fingers crossed for an awesome finish. And when we return, Adelyn will start Mother's Morning Out! Woo-hoo!!

Pictures are below from our beach trip. Here's the link to many more on Kodakgallery.

I AM READY to hit the beach!


She did not mind getting sand on her. She constantly had handfuls of sand or seashells!
