family vacay. 2012

We had one of the best vacations ever back in early August.
We spent hardly any money.
We hardly got dressed in much more than a bathing suit or yoga pants/basketball shorts.
We only wore flip flops.
And we just sat by the beach.
It was perfect.
 Rebecca's parents have a house at Topsail so we went for a week. Rebecca and I drove down with Chase, Austin and Deuce. Ed, Daniel & TJ came down a day later. The first thing the boys wanted to do was go to the water and throw rocks and mud. They could do this for hours.
 Rebecca's sister and nephew came over to hang out for a little bit. Talon is only a few months younger than Deuce & Chase.
 All week long the boys had their fair share of timeouts.
They would push, shove, fight over toys, cry and scream and then hug it out a few minutes later.
Neither of them go to daycare yet so it was good for them.
Rebecca and I just laughed most of the time.
 We spent most of our time at the beach. Believe it or not Deuce has never been to the "ocean" part of the beach. We usually go to mom's place and it's on the sound with it's own beach area so we never have reason to go to the ocean side. Deuce immediately became obsessed with the ocean and the waves.
 Like he didn't want to get out of the water obsessed.
Like he had super bad diaper rash from the sand and water.
 You know we played sports.
Is that a stance or what?
 We hung out on the amazing screened in porch.
 We napped on the beach.
 We attempted to put Deuce and Chase together on a mattress on the floor. They both slept through 1 night and got up at the same time super early. Both boys crawled into bed with me & Ed and slept a little longer.
 Daniel & Rebecca took the boys on the kayaks so I could take a nap.
 Deuce had so much fun on the kayak that it put him right to sleep.
I'll let the pictures tell the rest. It was beach, beach, beach for us and I wouldn't have wanted it any other way. I am missing summer vacation already.
