Just over a month after our first family vacation to the Outer Banks, we returned, this time with my mom and my sister's family.
The first time around, Tucker was just three weeks old and slept most of the six-hour drive. This time, he decided to hate everything about his car seat, including the fabric which he happily pooped all over (somehow it got in his hair, but completely missed his back?). So between that, screaming and stopping to feed him, the six-hour drive took about eight.
Our time at the beach house was great, though! Tucker made it down to the beach a few times, and I actually got to spend some time alone by the pool. Having my mom and sister around to help, plus feeling more confident as a mom myself, made for a relaxing and fun vacation.
Tucker's new beach overalls deserved a mini photo shoot.
It might look like my niece and nephew are just playing in the pool, but they were actually trying to avoid my camera in every photo.
The only time my 4-year-old-going-on-14 niece would let me photograph her was when I did her hair and makeup.
I love these photos because she's wearing one of my old dresses! I used to be obsessed with my "bear dress."
These guys love their Uncle Tyler.
