Hilton Head Island- Summer 2009

We headed out for Hilton Head Island last week and have been having a great time playing at the beach and in the pool ever since. Our days basically consist of: wake up, eat breakfast, play at the beach, dip in the pool, lunch, nap, more pool or beach time before dinner, bike riding, and bed.... wake up and repeat.

Other than that, the only story to tell is of the "brilliant" idea we had to ride bikes on the beach last night after dinner. Scott and I struggled over the soft sand portion with our two bikes with loaded carriers behind and made our way out onto the packed, wet sand. Our mistake was riding with the wind at our backs because we didn't realize how much the wind was pushing us along... until we turned around several miles down the beach. At that point, we were literally standing up on the pedals and we were still at times unable to pedal those bikes into the wind! It was a grueling trip back, but we made it, and the girls had a fabulous time playing in the waves with Daddy when we took our breaks.

That's it for now. I hope you enjoy the first round of pictures!
