Halsey/Basham Vaca 2010

On July 25, Jonathan and I packed up our baby and our car and headed south. This was the second year in a row that we've decided to vacation with Jeremy and April in Murrell's Inlet, SC where Jeremy's parents own a townhouse. This year, of course, we had two extra house guests. So, instead of boring you with too many details, I'll tell you about our vacation in pictures!

Are we there yet? Brenna was a champion traveler and she slept most of the way to and from the beach. She also was super cooperative and nursed in many random parking lots!

London was so happy to see Brenna when we got there! They even shared toys!

July 26, 2010 - Brenna's first time putting her feet in the sand!

She didn't seem to mind it, except when the sand "disappeared" under her feet - she wasn't a fan!

Here is our family photo on our first day at the beach!

Brenna really mastered sitting up while we were at the beach, and she really liked beach toys!

Polka dotted buddies!

She was a great napper at the beach. This is still day 1.

Jeremy and April babysat Brenna while we went out for our 2nd anniversary. We went to the Melting Pot and enjoyed it so, so much. Two years and I definitely still do!


Brenna's first time in the pool was a success. She liked splashing!

Twinkle Toes!

The boys took the kids down the slide - Brenna's first time. I'm so dorky that I actually videotaped this.

2 sleeping babies = success!!

Swimming with Daddy is SO MUCH FUN!

We repaid the favor and babysat London one night. We were brave and took both kids out to eat at Phillip's Seafood. We didn't regret until the screaming-loaded drive home.

Don't waste your time with Phillip's Seafood in Mytle Beach. London and I weren't impressed.

Jonathan and Jeremy went fishing on Thursday while April, the babies, and I shopped. They caught crabs and cooked them for a snack.

Mom, I love vacations!

London, GET OFF ME! Brenna, I'm trying!

Rocking the zebra hat from Finley and the polka dotted bathing suit from Aunt Sheri. I'm a super-stylish beach bum.
Here's our group shot on our last full day.
We met up with the Mann family on Friday night and we took Megan and Jacob to a MB Pelicans game with us so Brian and Ashley could go on a date. It was loads of fun!
He absolutely adores Brenna.
Megan is a natural!
We had a great trip and made lots and lots of memories. We're already looking forward to our next vacation!


  1. What a fun vacation! I think it's so great that you have a couple that you can go with. That's a real treat.

    Brenna looks as cute as ever. She's just beautiful. And you look great, Erin.

  2. It was a great trip! Thanks for the recap :)
