Big K Vaca {part 1}

We kicked off summer {June 2...yes, I'm just now catching up} by sneaking away for a week long Big K vaca to Grayton Beach, Florida. My dad's present to my mom for her 50th was a family vacation. It's hard to get all of us together now that we're "all grown-up" because we live so far apart, so we all were looking forward to this trip.

This was our first time to fly with a baby....and boy, there is a lot to pack for a flight with a baby! Thankfully, some of my friends gave me some good baby-flying tips: 1. put formula in bottles with out water {buy room temperature water at airport...after security}, 2. buy an umbrella stroller {I had to because my big papa britax b-ready didn't meet the weight limit}, 3. Pack as much stuff into the carseat suitcase because you can check it in for free {best advice EVER} 

Overall the flight was good {going through security carrying everything and a baby was the toughest}, and Caleb slept 1hr on my lap on the plane. So sweet!

This was the beach house we stayed at on Grayton Beach

 This was our neighbor for the week and the prettiest house in all Grayton Beach

Sis did a lot of this...

Caleb's first trip to the beach was an adventure! He didn't like the beach water...the water was a little cold for him and he did NOT like the waves. He preferred to play on the sand...
 I love all the skull & crossbone baby swimwear! Makes my ChiO loving heart happy!

 My beach boys...
Caleb's first day at the beach...

...nope he was not a fan of the beach water!

CK might not like the water, but he's all smiles on shore...

...and THANKFULLY our beach house came with a private pool, so CK could enjoy some water time

It was so much fun to hang out with my parents, grandma, 2 brothers, sis, and hubby and CK all week! Yep all the Big K's fighting over Caleb's attention!

I'm so thankful for my parents for providing this relaxing beach vacation!!! I wish my family lived closer!

  1. Everything looks so beautiful! And I love his little belly hanging out of his swim shirt. What a cutie!

  2. Oh my goodness- what a cutie pie! I love the pic of him in his jammies - he looks so snuggly! xo.
