Happy 4th from the Beach

Happy 4th everyone! James and I arrived to Pawley’s Island VERY late last night. We didn’t go to bed until after midnight! Our plane was delayed, and after screaming his lungs out for the first half of the flight, James finally passed out in my arms for the remainder. I’ll spare you all of the travel details for now, that could be a whole post in and of itself. Most importantly, we made it safely and it’s the 4th of July on the island and the rest of the country!

James slept in a bit later than usual, and we started our day with the most patriotic breakfast I could come up with. Gotta love a red white and blue breakfast on the 4th.

Soon after breakfast, it was off to the beach! James is already a big fan of the ocean and all of the sand. I was filled with joy watching his little mind take in the beach scene for the first time. I can’t wait for him to get even more comfortable with the environment in the next couple of days, I have a feeling we have a beach baby in the making.

We missed out on the Pawley’s Island parade in favor of a nap, but I’m sure our afternoon will be filled with lots of adventures. I’ve got a pasty white baby on my hands, so we just have to be careful about the blazing sun later. Maybe some shaded fun will be in our best interest.

I hope you are all out there enjoying this beautiful day! I’ll stop by soon with more updates πŸ™‚


Hi I'm Rae and I am a pastor's wife and mom to our one year old son James. I recently started blogging as a way to share my recovery journey from an eating disorder, as well as married life, motherhood, food, and faith. Hop along for the ride, I’m glad you’re here!
