hilton head, part 2 (a sunrise)

IMG_5344_web

on our last full day at the beach, we woke up before dawn so we could sneak out and watch the sunrise. since wilder was sleeping in our room (the sleep situation is always the hardest part of vacationing with kids, isn't it?!), we woke him up, pulled a jacket over his pjs and brought him out, too. he was so happy to be included, and it was great that we got to take him with us on a little adventure. after we watched the sunrise, we went back to get evie up and brought them back to the beach for a few photos. we were really trying to hit that golden hour, but were just a tiny bit too late to get the perfect lighting. it was still pretty magical, and evie was in HEAVEN. that girl. i swear she is part sea creature! i first tried to set up one of those sweet little sibling photos but evie felt a little strangled (and held back;), so we quickly ditched that attempt and let them roam around free while we scurried after them, trying to make sure no one fell in the water. i love the series of evie running from her papa. she loves to be chased. mostly she loves to get away though. ;) i wished we could have done this every morning, but we are sooo not morning people. maybe by next year we will be! haha, a girl can dream right? i love these photos so much.

i feel so bad that i didn't get nearly as many photos of wilder as evie, because i was constantly having to run to keep her from running straight into the ocean!

  1. I had to LOL at maybe being a morning person next year. I think you and I have both been trying to be morning people for years and it hasn't worked yet. These photos are gorgeous; I especially love that you captured the pure joy and excitement in Evie's face!
