GSU & Hilton Head Beach Trip 2015

This summer we decided to take a little trip to the beach with David's hotel points. I realize it's the middle of winter so I thought this post would be perfect now. I believe this was in August or end of July. We went to Hilton Head, SC with a quick stop in Statesboro (GSU!).
Our very first spot was lunch at an old favorite. Nikkos!! No, it's not the same... but it will do. 
There ya have it. The ginger salad dressing deserves a photo of it's own. 
Chicken Teriaki with fried rice and veggies. 
We then went to the book store to get a few football season essentials. Look how small Coco was!!
We look warm! 
New gear and he looks pregnant lol. 
Unsuccessful family selfie.
Of course dinner had to be here!
My drink was too weak (don't they know me there by now) so he brought an extra shot so I took it of course (I think I put some in my drink, too).
After dinner it was still light enough (think summer) so we went touring the campus. It's all changed so much.
We went to the business building first and I was so surprised the door to the buildings were open AND the classrooms. I mean no one was in there! Maybe a few professors?
I can't get over how small she was!! 
Next we headed to the engineering building to see David's old stomping grounds. 
Next up-Hilton Head. We spent the night in Statesboro and then to the beach. 
My sandy baby! 
Coco was very hesitant to come off the towel. I figured it out that she was more brave with shoes on. Max was at the perfect beach age. He loved everything about it.
Max took a late car snooze after not napping and was being cute on daddy. We had some great dinners, but this was just the start of Coco not behaving at restaurants. Luckily we ate outdoors/patios so not a big deal. Since we were at a hotel we needed to find lunches out too. We found an awesome Kroger right down the street. David and I got subs every day and got the kids a salad bar type deal. Filled it with fruit, cheese and lunch meat and was way cheaper than getting all of it separately and eating at the hotel. 
She enjoyed sitting under the sportsbrella we bought on a chair of course. 
Max was very busy playing in the sand.  We rotated between sand and pool. Since Coco was still napping twice a day we did one in the morning then broke for naps/lunch then back to the other then back up for afternoon naps/dinner. 
He even went in the ocean by himself! 
Dinner time! 
Don't let this pic fool you! He was TERRIFIED of that frog haha. He turned brave though. 
I forget the full story behind this photo, but we had a second umbrella set up and I look over to see David taking a selfie of himself with his beer and I'm like try that pic again, but show the full picture of what is happening. I have the kiddos and he is on his separate vacation apparently!
We received this lovely wine/cheese/fruit tray for some reason. No clue anymore, but I'm sure David smoozed someone at the front desk. We had a great time on our little vacay. I think we only did 4-5 days total, but with 2 kiddos it was enough time. Now I'm dreaming of warm weather and summer! Pin It
