Hilton Head Vacation- Recap

May is a busy time for us with David’s birthday, our anniversary and Mother’s Day all in one week. We thought what better time to take time to spend with the family so we decided to head to Hilton Head. We left Thursday afternoon and returned on Monday. We decided to stay at the Hilton Head Marriott Resort which turned out to be a good choice.

The weather was perfect, not too hot with just enough of a breeze to make for perfect beach days. The hotel had a great breakfast bar with made to order omelets and waffles, so we ended up eating there every morning. After breakfast each day we took a nice long walk on the beach. Madilyn is not really a “ocean lover” yet so we spent most of our mornings and afternoons pool side instead of at the beach.
We did leave the resort one day to go play mini golf. It was Madilyn’s first time and she was a trip. She was so cute to watch. She would try to hit the ball a few times, and then she would pick it up and drop the ball in the hole and clap for herself.
I know this will sound bad, but the part I liked best about the vacation was the dates David and I got to take each night. I love my kids, but sometimes we get so busy with the kids that we neglect us. So often our days revolve around the kids, so it was nice to have some time to focus on us.
Each evening after Madilyn went to sleep David and I were able to leave Caleb to watch her so that we could go on a short date. One night it was a walk on the beach, another it was just sitting out on the pool deck looking at the stars, one night we took a dip in the hot tub and on another we went to the hotel bar and ordered drinks and dessert. It was just nice to be able spend some time relaxing and reconnecting.
We all enjoyed being able to spend time together having fun and doing nothing.
