Vacation - the first

Well, I have a lot of great vacation pictures, and I can't put them all in one post. So here I am starting to post about our vacation. Maybe it will keep me from having one long boring, rambling post about our vacation. I can just tell you little bits here and there. ;) I'll try.

We left Ohio and headed to Emerald Isle, North Carolina. My sister and her husband rode with Matt and I. Zachariah had a hard time sleeping and being comfortable in the car. We snapped this picture once he relaxed a little bit. He did well for an 8 hour car ride the first day. We drove part of the way through Virginia and stayed overnight.

Our trip started Friday morning, and by Saturday early afternoon we were in our house in Emerald Isle. So, we dressed Zachariah up and let him see the beach and ocean for the first time. I snapped this picture just before a big wave came and got us all wet. But I couldn't believe it when he wanted to get back in the water. He loved it.

This is the house that we stayed it. It is right on the beach. This is the back of the house. I took this picture from the beach. There are 6 bedrooms and 3 full baths. It worked out so Matt and I had a bedroom and Zachariah was in a bedroom in the same hallway. There was a bathroom in between AND a door so we could close that whole wing off. Then my parents and grandmother had a wing, and my sister and her husband had the downstairs. It worked out well for a little privacy. And then Zachariah could go to bed and we could still be up and playing games or hanging out.

Zachariah was ready for the beach. He didn't really keep him sunglasses on long, but he did like playing with them. He's holding Matt's sunscreen here, but he let me put on baby sunscreen constantly for him. The hat my mom got him was too big, so we figured out a way to tie it then Velcro it. It stayed on that way.

He was funny to watch in a new environment. Luckily he slept well in his room. Even in the hotel room with 4 other people sleeping in there, he stayed in the crib and slept through the night. I didn't know how that would go since he's used to sleeping in his own quiet room.

Well, more about the rest of our week tomorrow.
