Countdown to Disney World

Not that we really need a reason to psych ourselves up for a trip to the happiest place on Earth, but I love a fun countdown to create an even greater sense of anticipation. I started 30 days from our vacation date. Each day one of the children opened an envelope with the number of days left written on the front. There was a gift or activity written inside. The treats were all something that could be used on the trip. They included: Disney socks, pajamas, Disney trading pins, Disney movies to watch in the car, personalized coin holder full of quarters and pennies for the pressed penny machines, and a Disney themed gift. There were also Disney themed breakfast, dinner, and cupcakes on the countdown.

This is just a fun little way of celebrating a vacation before actually going on it.

Hilton Head Island

At the beginning of the summer my family took a wonderful trip to Hilton Head, South Carolina. It is truly one of my favorite places. We took both sets of grandparents and we truly had a grand time. There were the most wonderful memories made.We tried new things like paddle boarding, which I absolutely loved!  We had fabulous weather and stayed at the most amazing house.

The children played Bean Boozled with their grandparents. We all thought it was hilarious when my dad, Boobah, got dog food three times in a row. All four were great sports! We had countless hours of fun in the infinity pool.
