We're at Emerald Isle now and the weather couldn't be more perfect.
Not all of the family is here yet but about half of us.
The rest get here tomorrow.
After arriving we unpacked, hit the pool then got ready for dinner and our niece, Paige's 3rd birthday celebration.
Here's SIL Robyn with Reed on the top balcony of our oceanfront house.
This is our second year coming and staying in this house.
Yes, I have to do a family photo shoot each night because I'm a cheesball.
That's why I'm going to try and post throughout the week so I don't kill you guys when I come back.
Cousin Mike walking the kids down to the beach.
Mike's wife and daughter, Kathy and Katie.
So fun being here and not having to work.
As you know, Brad and I rarely vacation where we aren't 'doing' something.
Here's Katie and her boyfriend Tim.
We are taking turns cooking each night.
Last night my MIL and FIL were on point and cooked lasagna.
Then the birthday celebration started.
Remember how I told you I got Paige a real pageant style tiara?
Well, she loved it!
I had to have Reed something too because he gets a bit jealous on other people's birthdays.
Note-- Reed's face.
The jealousy only gets worse.
I'm sorry but I had to laugh.
Brad and I also got Paige a stroller for her babies.
It was, and still is, a huge hit.
Well, with everyone but Reed.
Told you, it got worse.
I was looking at these pictures with him this morning and he told me.
'I was upset. I wanted gifts too!'
I told him it wasn't his birthday so deal with it.
Miss Priss is still styling around the house today.
Brand new headband, handbag, sunglasses, stroller.
She's ready to take on the world.
More to come!
