"Friend-cation" 2013

As promised I bring you photos, 70 to be exact, from our recent "Friend-cation" this past weekend. Sorry for the over photo-ing but there were just too many cute ones to choose....I might be biased but I think these are some of the hottest mommas with the cutest babies I ever did see...and our hubs they're not half bad either;) My friend Jaimee did a great recap here.

Let me start by saying this trip came at the best time...life had gotten quite stressful and overwhelming and this trip was life giving, soul refreshing fun. I was in desperate need of some belly laughing, deep conversation and relaxation and this trip provided all of this and more..

The old Stephanie came out for fun....I officially "Unleashed the beast" as we pegged it....thanks to a monster, baby naptimes and sweet friends...as some of you might not know my friends wrote a silly letter in high school informing my mom that I might need to be put on some medication for ADD...haha while I really probably should have I enjoy those "Unleash the Beast" moments...the moments where you can laugh, joke and put all lifes seriousness aside for a while....

We headed down Thursday morning and per usual Miss Isabella was a traveling queen...we stopped at Buckees our usual spot about halfway to eat, stretch our legs and caught up with the Ellis'. We arrived at the beach house and I think the guys might have been more excited than we were if that is possible...
Pretty much obsessed with this little onesie from Gap

Our house....it was perfect besides having to finagle a door for the Granberry's room... if you are going to rent a beach house with babies I highly recommend a pool...it was perfect.

Friday morning the Sneed's made breakfast then we headed down to the beach...we decided to grab dinner at Gaido's that was delish and quite the circus...haha...it was Isabella's nap time so it took me a bit to get her asleep in my arms...next year there will be either a babysitter or no out to dinner nights:)


Sweet Wyatt

Isabella was OBSESSED with the sand...


Graham....not so much...he hated the sand at first...

Adorable bathing beauty Grey...is there anything more precious?

sweet Rosalie....nothing sweeter than a baby in a bikini:)


Nap time...thankfully she fell asleep quickly in my arms for a bit...

Friends and babies


Going to be best buds!!

Our fancy pool...haha....this was perfect..we lucked out and all 5 kids napped at the same time both days so we got some much needed sun/relaxation in the pool...



Wyatt was so adorable with all the babies:)


Adorable Graham...haha finally got over the sand fear...


So

So stinkin precious....I miss the days Isabella would leave sunglasses on;)

Snack time

Can you believe we got 3 pictures of all 5 of them together:) They have all learned that their mommies are picture fanatics..

After dinner...no I didn't cut my hair haha it looks so short here...


Grey, Rosalie, Wyatt, Isabella, & Graham

Love these sweet babies

We topped Friday night off with the best dance party around....oh there are videos that will not be released:)
Saturday...we had a lazy morning waiting out the rain then headed down to the beach for a little more sun....then headed back for fajita night
This girl is not afraid to get dirty...

Adorable baby bellies...

Love this bikini on sweet Rosalie

Hey what are you doing?!

Watching her friend Rosalie




Love, love this picture...

Adorable Sneed family

McDonald family

Love The Gonzalez family

Jen and Graham...who knows where Cole was..probably bearing himself in the sand..

Me and my sweet lil miss...yes she is mine...no she doesn't look like me:)

Wyatt and Matt playing in the sand...

Best buds....

Beach trips are very nostalgic for me since we have done them since I was little...and part of my favorite memories was flying these kites with my dad...so thankful for a sweet hubs who learned how to put them together and walked back to get the string:)


Yumm....sea weed...

He would tip toe in the sand...too cute...

loves....he was not a fan of the sand haha

The brief second she would leave them on...

"Let's go fly a kite..up to the highest height"

And another astonishingly good pic of our babes in the shirts I made for them.... 


And Sunday I was snapping some quick pictures of the house for my mom and put Isabella in the chair real quick and I got this precious photo....

It was so sad to have to wake up to reality on Monday morning and not get to lazily drink my coffee, chat with friends, and spend my day with my munchkin....but this will be an annual thing..

next year....lake house...T-363 days:)

Quotes of the trip:

Yoyoloo
Hold your pom poms
"Unleash the beast"
It just helps them spin faster
She's going to tell you a different story

Can't wait til next time....
We missed the Zotter's, Widener's, and Kubinsky's...hoping we can all make it next year...
That would be 8 couples and 10 babies:) Yipee...

  1. LOVE all your pictures. A couple notes...1. I like Matt photobombing your family beach picture. 2. I like that Isabella is getting a handful of boob in your family after dinner photo. And 3. Isabella has an outtie!? Cutest baby bellybutton ever!!! Can't wait until next year...or really just our next get together! : ) Love you!
