Last week we headed to Hilton Head for the EJ Summer Regional and boy did we have fun. My aunt, Stella's "Great", lives in Hilton Head so we were excited to see her and spend time w/ her as we hadn't seen her since Christmas!
Kyle had meetings immediately when we arrived on Thursday, so Stella and I hit the pool.
After soaking up the sun, we got ready and met Daddy for dinner.
Kyle's "initiation" at the conference was to play the "Air Guitar". While his was just average, some of the other "new guys" enjoyed themselves and definitely put on a show.
Friday, Stella and I went shopping while Daddy was in "class" and then we met "Great" for lunch.
Friday night we had a yummy but frantic (we're realizing Stella may be getting into the "Terrible 2's" as she was NOT a good girl) dinner. After dinner we headed to Shelter Cove to walk around a bit and enjoy the beautiful scenery. I grew up climbing on Neptune's statue so it was neat to see Stella enjoying him as well.
Shannon Tanner played and sang to the children. Stella and Great enjoyed dancing to the music.
I was SO thankful that my mom could join us for most of the weekend. Stella sure does love her Mimi!
Having fun w/ Mimi and Great!
This sure is one loved little girl!
Saturday, we beached it. This was Stella's first time seeing the ocean this year and while she was hesitant at first, she loved it once she got used to it.
I love that lil tushie!
We built sandcastles but Stella liked to squish them faster than we could build them.
Stella loved spending time w/ her Great!
Stella said "OH NO!" every time she saw sand on her feet or hands. She didn't like being "dirty". ha ha Hopefully she'll grow to love the sand as we have another beach trip planned in September.
Saturday night was the Awards Dinner for FA's and spouses. Mimi and Great had a fun date night w/ Stella so Kyle and I were able to enjoy a nice evening recognizing all of the wonderful FA's who work for EJ.
Kyle received an award from Area Leader, Matt, and I thought it was so nice that they recognized the spouses as well. It's definitely a family environment and we both LOVE the EJ for that reason.
Kyle and Jon, former Regional Leader pose w/ Kyle's trophy. Kyle has definitely enjoyed his first year w/ EJ and we are both so blessed for the awesome opportunity to be a part of such a wonderful company.
