McWhorter Family Vacation

The first week of August, we went to the beach with the McWhorter family. We stayed for a week at Pointe West Resort in Galveston. Now, for all you locals, I know what you're thinking...Galveston?! Well, the weather was perfect, there was no seaweed, and the ocean was actually clear and had a hint of blue to it!!! If you've ever been to Galveston, those are some HUGE things to be excited about! Ha! We had such a great time! Our family loves the beach and sun! Yes, it can be a pain at times to keep things free of sand and we get a little nervous at how far out the girls can go in the ocean, but other than that, we love it! It is like a big wide open playground for the kids! We had never been to Pointe West before. I had heard good and bad reviews on it, so I was a little skeptical. Plus, like I said, it was Galveston beaches! :) But, it ended up being awesome!

We pretty much had the same routine everyday. In the mornings, we would lounge around, eat breakfast, and get the whole crew ready to head down to the beach.

Once at the beach, we would stay for 2-3 hrs. So, so much fun!

After the beach, we would head to the resort pool. It was a great way to cool off after being in the sun, sand and salt water for many hrs.

Then, we would head back to the house for lunch, naps (for the young and old), lounging around, and sometimes a little crafting for Nanny and her girlies.

Nighttime would consist of more pool time, eating dinner, playing with cousins, laughing with family, s'mores, kids going to bed, and adults staying up until all hours of the night talking.

And...that is where our fun, family beach vacation comes to an end. Unfortunately, our family of 5 (almost 6) had to pack up a few days early and head home. I started having some pretty major contractions and we got a little nervous being almost 2hrs. from home. Thankfully, they stopped. We were sad to leave, but felt it would be best to be at home and close to my hospital and Dr.'s. Due to that little incident, I have no family group pictures. :( This make me so sad. But, even with no pics, I know memories were made that will last a lifetime!

Thank you, Nanny and PawPaw, for an another amazing vacation! We will always treasure these times together as a family.

It was so fun and I LOVE the last picture of all the kids! We are very lucky to have this time each year. We love y'all and when the little guy gets here we will just make him sit out a couple days of beach vacation for causing trouble on this one ;) Always good memories!
