Hilton Head Island

Josh and I took Bennett to Hilton Head Island for 4 days over Mother's day. We fell in love with Hilton Head and will definitely be back! 

Bennett really enjoyed watching the airplanes and trucks out the windows at the airport

 Traveling there was our biggest fear. Our normally very active, rambunctious toddler does not like to sit still for very long.......ever. A 3:30 AM wake-up prompted several catnaps throughout the day. He was such a trooper though, and I would call the airplane travel a huge success! He was loving it!

 Some shots of the condo we rented for the trip

Love this!!

Enjoying our first moments in Hilton Head at the beach and out to eat. Lot's of live music to enjoy everywhere we went. Bennett really enjoyed the music!

 Biking is THE mode of transportation in Hilton Head. We only rented bikes for 1 day while there, but we definitely got our use of them. We biked 9 miles to brunch and back, and later in the day we logged another 10 miles to Sea Pines and back. Bennett loved the bikes and continually asked about them the rest of the trip.

Some park fun before brunch!

Hilton Head had some awesome parks!

Mother's Day Brunch at Poseidon in Palmetto Dunes

We loved the rocking chairs located all over the island

1st beach day

The only bad thing about the beach......the jellyfish:( 
(Kind of hard to see in this picture, but they were scattered up and down the beach and you had to watch for them in the water)

 More Rocking chairs

We spent Mother's day evening listening to live music, admiring the boats, and eating ice cream at Harbor Town in the Sea Pines plantation.

Busy beach day! View from our condo

Beach day #2

We also logged many, many hours at the pools

Swimming with Daddy

Josh got lucky and even got to golf in Hilton Head

Our last night in Hilton Head we went to eat at the Salty Dog Cafe. They also had live music, where Bennett really enjoyed dancing with all of the other kids!

Our first family vacation was a huge success!! We fell in love with Hilton Head and are already discussing when we can come back!!
