Doing something I told myself I would never do

I let my baby swim in the ocean for the first time. Naked. With lots of people (who were not naked)
We forgot his swimming suit so we let him walk in a little.

And it quickly turned into this. He was loving it so much we had to let him get in. This is the face he made every time a wave hit him.

And then his diaper started doing this and the poor kid could hardly walk. We had no choice, the diaper had to come off.

Just so you know, we now have some really good photos to bribe Javen with one day. hehe. He did make one cute naked baby at the beach though!

We tried to squeeze in as much of Charleston in 5 hours as possible. The result was not a lot of pictures and future plans to go back. (It's been added to my list of places to visit that one day we will get to.)

The custom of the only tourist pics we got besides the beach. We did have an amazing lunch and drove by Fort Sumter of course, but no photos.

We went to a few football games and Javen got a little too excited over the cheerleaders...but we'll just pretend he was this into the game.

And just for fun here are a few more pics from Gatlinburg. We hiked 4 miles one way to get to this one:
Ramsey Cascades

This was the view from our cabin:

I love vacations, especially when they involve the mountains and the ocean.

You are such a bad mom...letting your child swim naked!? hahaha He is so dang cute. I love the pictures. Way to let loose and be a softie mom. That makes for happy kids. :) Miss you!
