That First Time {Beach} Feeling

Emily P.
Where we stayed: L Amour the Mer-ier

Our first trip to Seabrook was in October of 2012 for our first anniversary. We stayed in Melissa’s Beach Bungalow with our hound dog and mini poodle and had an amazing time. It was on the way home from that trip that my husband and I decided to quit our jobs, move to Uganda, East Africa and begin our family through adoption. Less than a year later in August, we moved to Uganda. We ended up spending 13 months there and were incredibly blessed to gain a beautiful son & daughter. The ocean has always been incredibly special to me & after 13 months away, I couldn’t wait to take the kids to see the beach. We arrived home with our son, Aven and daughter, Evelyn in September of 2014 and the following week did a day trip to Seabrook where our son slipped his little feet into the Pacific Ocean and danced in the water in his pajamas.

We ended up going through the adoption process two more times between 2014 & 2015. When we returned in 2015, we were a family of six. We decided then to start a December Seabrook tradition going just a few days before Christmas. The kids enjoyed bundling up and playing on the beach.

In 2016, we returned again in December— this time still a family of six, but in the adoption process again. We enjoyed another sweet family trip that we got to share with my husbands family.

In December of 2017, we returned yet again with our newly adopted son from Uganda. There really is nothing like watching a child see the ocean for the first time. Eyes filled with excitement and wonder.

My husband and I got to return for our Anniversary with our pups in October of 2018. The day we returned home, I found out I was pregnant with our sixth child. So on our return in December 2018, I was pregnant with our little guy and we had our four youngest kiddos in tow.

Our son, Lincoln was born in June and we booked a trip with my parents in July. Our littlest got his first beach trip.

Needless to say, Seabrook is a pretty special place for us. ♥️ Prize Details
