Seabrook VacaPosted by Shannon Stewart on July 13, 2014 | Leave a comment
We had soooooo much fun on our big ol’ family vacation last week! My whole family went, along with my aunts, uncles, cousins, and even some extended family. A few people couldn’t make it, but it was definitely a big gang! We went to Seabrook, South Carolina. I am sure most of you have seen the movie, “The Notebook,” and alot of it was filmed there. I felt like I was in a movie at times because it is just so breath-taking! The green trees, winding streets, and million dollar homes were definitely easy on the eyes!
You can ride your bikes around the whole island (it is called Seabrook Island). I was so thrilled that the Lord blessed us with great weather! It wasn’t too hot and really didn’t rain. It was great to get our toes in the sand because my husband and I hadn’t been to the beach in awhile. There is a big main pool that is right by the beach, so we would swim for a bit, then walk a few hundred feet and go swimming in the ocean. I didn’t go too far out because I am scared of sharks! There were sightings there of them not too far out, so I was going to take their word for it!
ALL of my family is competitive so of course there were games! Matthew and I didn’t win a single one of them. We did have a blast though trying to win! I thought one of us would have done better in the corn-hole tournament, but there is always Christmas!
We had a few nights where we would all meet at one of my aunt and uncles places (their place was so massive that it could fit all of us) for dinner. We had bbq, taco, and a grilled chicken/pork chop night. It was so tasty that it had all of our taste buds dancing! My family has some extremely talented cooks in it!
This trip seemed to fly by too fast! We really had such a wonderful time making memories, laughing till our stomachs hurt, and just sharing what is going on in our lives. It was refreshing to say the least.
Oh, and we also celebrated my adorable nephew’s 1st birthday! He didn’t know what to think of his cake at first. It didn’t take him long to realize that it is delicious and he dug right in. There were moments when he wouldn’t even take his little finger out of his mouth because he was liking off the buttercream icing.
Here are a few pics from our trip!
PS. I always pack food with me, it doesn’t matter how long I am going or where. I think it comes from all of my modeling days when I didn’t know when I was going to get fed! So, I did bring one of my favorite things–Quest bars and PB cups! They are soooooo yummy and you can bake them too! Mmm Mmm
Until next time….
Stay true to you!>
