Vacation and Brian's Birthday

We went to Hilton Head for Brian's birthday. We had a great time. Brian's parents and sister met us at the beach. On Saturday we enjoyed some pool time and then went out to eat. We attempted to eat at the Sea Shack, but decided not to wait in line when the people in front of us had 10 other people come join them in line. They also brought a cooler with them and broke out the beers while waiting in line. So, since we didn't know it was a BYOB we decided to leave (j/k). We enjoyed dinner at Longhorns.

On Sunday Brian and I enjoyed the pool in the morning and then went to play golf in the afternoon. It was the first time I played golf in about a year. I didn't play too well, but not too bad either. It was really hot and we were both growing weary as we approached the signature hole #13. It was a beautiful par 3, 147yds. Since it was the 'signature hole' I got the camera to take a few pictures. I took pictures of Brian hitting the ball. After he hit the ball I was looking at the camera and the pictures I had taken. Brian asked me if I saw where the ball went. Thinking he had hit a bad shot and couldn't find his ball I told him I wasn't watching and asked where it went. He replied with a simple answer, "In the hole." I couldn't believe that I missed seeing the ball roll into the hole. I didn't want to hit my shot, I wanted to go see the ball in the hole. So, I think Brian had a great birthday especially since he got a hole in one!

For dinner we once again attempted to dine at the Sea Shack, but they were closed on Sundays. So, we enjoyed dinner at Bonefish Grill. It was delicious and they gave Brian a box of chocolates for his birthday! When we returned to the room we celebrated Brian's birthday with cake (with some trick candles :-)

Caleb did great away from home. He was fussy a during the evening, while we were in the car, but I expected that. He slept through the night and took a couple of naps during the day. He did great in the car on the way and the way back home. He slept pretty much the entire way home. We had a great time, but as always I am tired and glad to be home.

On the way!

Aunt Lindsay's idea for a good picture setting
Caleb's smiling for the camera. The cake did say HAPPY BIRTHDAY, but it was in the hot car too long :-( It's the thought that counts, right?

The optimal way to hold Caleb while he is pooping.
