Beach Bum Babies - Part 1

Well our Tybee Island beach trip has come and gone. I don't think I've ever been on a vacation that seemed to go by as quickly as this one did. Even our week in Fiji seemed to last longer. But we had a great time none the less on Kayleigh's first beach trip. So how about a fun photo recap?

We arrived in Hilton Head on Saturday afternoon. About an hour later than our original time.  Our flight was delayed.  Then, as we were ready to board, we were pulled aside with 3 other passengers and told that we may be bumped from our flight. I had a total WTF moment and almost went off. They said we had the possibility of being bumped because our plane was a "propeller" plane and they were expecting to run into turbulence. So the plane could only take a certain amount of weight.  And because we were the last passengers to check in, even though we purchased our tickets MONTHS ago, we were in line to be bumped.  Never mind the fact that we had NO carry on luggage, were toting a 4 month old baby, and the people that were allowed to board all had two bags of luggage EACH.  Needless to say, I was seriously pissed off. But, drama aside, we were able to board the plane that left an hour behind schedule and made it to Hilton Head.   We were promptly picked up by Drew's dad and we made the hour drive into Tybee Island, GA. 

The next day was our first beach day. 
Kayleigh was a bit unsure about all the sun.  But she wore her cute new swimming suit and pink polka dot hat. Every where we went people commented on how cute she looked in her hat. 
Headed down to check out the ocean for the first time.

First dip in the ocean!
It took a few tries, but she finally got used to the warm water splashing up over her legs. 
After lunch she was all tuckered out. Notice her swimming suit bottoms falling off her butt. She is so tiny that even 3-6 sized clothes are too big and she was almost 5 months!

The next day we went into Savannah for a tour around the city.

Kayleigh decided that site seeing was hard work!

Stay tuned for part two to include cousin bonding on the beach, ghost tours and lighthouses!
