It just so happens, Owen is wearing his Salty Dog tshirt!
We are officially in countdown to vacation mode in our house. Every year during the final few weeks before vacation, the kids and I make a paper chain to countdown the days until we leave. The anticipation is really beginning to build here at home as we begin to talk about our favorite spots on Hilton Head Island. We've been travelling to Hilton Head for a number of years now and there is a comforting familiarity in returning to a location you've come to know fairly well. There's the favorite restaurants and ice cream shops, knowing that Tuesday night is fireworks night down at Shelter Cove Harbor and for Kevin, the thrill of playing on some really nice golf courses!
But first, there's work to be done, planning and packing, another birthday to celebrate (Owen turns 5 on July 5th!) and softball and baseball tournament games yet to play out, before we can finally let our hair down, disconnect from the real world, leave the computer (and blog!) behind, forget about what time it is, and just relax.
Are we there yet?!
