Picture Books and Vacation

I'm baaaack!  Sad to say that...just joking!  I was on vacation for the past 3 weeks, so yes it was hard to get back to reality, but I am ready!  I had the most relaxing vacation, with no worries in mind! It was lovely!  My family and I spent time at my brother and sister's lake house, then headed off to South Carolina.  We visited Charleston and Hilton Head.  It was my first rained the whole time in Charleston, and only for a few days in Hilton Head...I know, I can't complain!  I will include a few of my vacation pics below, after my picture books that I found. While I was on vacation I went shopping of course!  I found a cute Storybook shop and couldn't resist going in...that's definitely the teacher in me! ;)  Anyways, I found a couple of books that intrigued me and thought you might want to check them out as well.  The first one I went ahead and bought and the others I figured I could find on Amazon.  "The Day the Crayons Quit" is a book that inspired me to create a bunch of products for my TPT store.  The other books did as well! The products will deal with learning about colors, letter writing, mapping, friendships, etc....STAY TUNED and look back often to check those out! Take a look at the books I found below!

"The Day the Crayons Quit" by Drew Daywalt

Back to my relaxing vacation... I didn't take pics of the lake, but I did take a few pics of Fort Sumter and Hilton Head.

Fort Sumter

Fort Sumter...go check out the website for Fort Sumter.  There is a lot of interesting information and things for teachers.

Hilton Head
This is the home where we stayed, well the back of the house.  It was in the Sea Pines Resort Area.
My brother's coworker owns this house.

This is the house from a distance.  I took it on the path to the ocean.  We were 3 houses down the walking path, to the ocean.  You could still hear the ocean at the house.
I love, love the Spanish Moss in the trees.
The ocean...huge waves.  The guys all went deep sea wouldn't believe how many sharks are in the area!

My niece, Kate could not get enough of the water. She loved every bit of it.  At 1 years old, she sure is adventurous!  My brother would take her in the ocean and she loved the waves.  We couldn't get her off the beach! Too cute!

My niece and I...not sure why I wore a long sleeve shirt! LOL it was over 80 degrees the whole time we were there! I love that weather.
My niece again...sorry I love her!  She is such a big girl now!

Ready for the beach!
So relaxing!

Refreshing drinks!
One last look at the ocean...
There you have it...well these were the only pics I had on my phone...there are tons more on the camera!

I wish you all a relaxing summer break...soon school will be starting and we will be back in the swing of things!
