We have a long-standing (you know all 4 years) tradition of spending Easter in our favorite place on Earth.
Easter often coincides with "spring break" so we packed up and headed to the beach house on Saint Simon's Island for 10 glorious days.
Ashley and Evie joined us for the beginning of the trip and Graham followed suit a few days later.
You see, Ashley and Graham (my cousin) have been together F-O-R-E-V-E-R
Which means Ashley and I have been joined at the hip many a year.
We have made it our mission to force our sweet little girls into a lifelong friendship...j/k...sort of...not really.
It was a wonderful week of relaxing, rewinding and renewing.
Wouldn't you take 10 days of this?
Best beach buddy ever!
Aren't they the sweetest girls?
Ice cream dates, spa night, and snuggling on the couch....these are the things friendship is made of.
One of my 2012 goals was to learn to shoot on manual.
I have a ways to go but with such a fun subject it is a joy to learn.
Mark loves history so on one of the cooler (read: freeze your rear off) days, we headed to Fort King George in Darien. I got some precious pics of B in the Easter outfit I made for her.
Sleepy head egg hunt before church!
Get ready for Easter picture overload....
And now it is back to reality....
