How to make four days feel like an eternity

Step one: pick a beautiful location

Fourth Birthday 01

Step two: embrace the fun of that location

Fourth Birthday 03

Step three: find some new and interesting places to explore

Fourth Birthday 04

Step four: throw in some hot tub action

Fourth Birthday 08

Step five: bring some people you love

Fourth Birthday 06


Our beach trip, four years in the making, was everything we hoped and more. The boys never got tired of the beach or the pools.

Fourth Birthday 05

I had a blast talking to this guy, the perfect husband for me. The poolside cocktails were an added bonus. (The many, many poolside cocktails, YAY!)

Fourth Birthday 02

Four years ago, I was laying on bed rest, worried about my babies, exhausted, huge as a house, grumpy as hell, and worried about my life with Jon changing. Four years later, my smile says it all. Life is good.

Fourth Birthday 07

And we are so hitting the beach for an entire week later this summer. Cocktail suggestions welcome.

Soo wonderful! You just sealed the deal on an upcoming beach vacation- I wasn't sure the babes would stay entertained. Where did you guys go? We were going to head to Gulf Shores but now we're thinking we need to head more your way...Any NC/SC beaches you can recommend?

Concerning cocktails.. you gotta try "Pink Heaven" as well as "Pina Colada" with strawberry sirup (but the last one is only for sweet ones :D). Have fun next time!

From someone who is huge as a house, grumpy as hell, and worried about the babies and my life changing, I gotta wait 4 yrs for this?!!
