Family Vacation in Oak Island

It's only taken me 4 months, but I've finally set aside a little bit of time to post something other than Thompson's monthly update.   Other than those monthly updates, I haven't posted anything since late spring.   We had quite a whirlwind of a summer.  T and I spent those first months getting to know our newborn and adjusting to being first time parents.   Because Thompson was born in late May, the majority of our summer was spent indoors keeping him cool and out of the sun.   We had a few little outings here and there, but nothing major.  We were able to end the summer with a family trip to Oak Island, NC where he finally got to dip his toes into the ocean.

Being away from home for a week and not having easy access to all the baby gear and gadgets we were used to was tough, but it was so nice to get a little escape.  My sister Sarah hadn't gotten a chance to meet Thompson yet, and I was so glad that she got to come for the entire week with us. My oldest sister, April, her husband, and their two daughters were also there along with my parents.    It was so nice to have my entire family there to lend a helping hand if T and I needed a break.  Thompson has seriously been the easiest and best baby ever, but sometimes it's nice to hand him off to a grandparent or aunt and just check out for a few minutes.   Here's a few photos from our trip.

I'll be back in just a couple of days with Thompson's 4 month update.  Hope y'all are having a great week!
