Beaching it!! May 2011

Earlier this month, we hit the road, headed to Ft. Walton, Florida!! This was Aaden's 3rd trip, and BB's FIRST time to enjoy the surf!! We learned a lot about the kiddos on the trip down to FL, such as, Aaden loves the movie, Strawberry Shortcake. LOL. He and Brybry enjoyed it most of the way there. We had a fairly easy trip with 3 kiddos, as well!!

The afternoon we made it to the beach, we brought the Aaden, Brady, and Bry to play in the sand, in sweatshirts, yep!! Sweatshirts on the beach!! The next few days, it was chilly in the morning, but by lunch time it was PERFECT!! In the 70's to low 80's. That means, no sweating... no sand sticking all over you, which was IDEAL for me!!

This was BB's first trip, and by the way he snoozed to the sound of the surf, I have a feeling he LOVED it!

He took in every opportunity to snooze, especially while being held!! Everyone knows, BB is rotten, straight down to the core ;)

Aaden had a GREAT time playing in the sand, especially because everyone was building sand castles, so he could knock them over!!

Aaden and Bryleigh loved just digging in the sand, and filling up their buckets!! They, as always, were completely adorable, even when they would bicker over nothing at all. Just because they were kids!! We enjoyed Bry and her Mommy's company!!

Brybry and her AH-dorable booty cheek ;)

This year we also managed to get Aaden into the water, yep!! He wasn't scared, as long as Mommy was the one bringing him in! Which, I, of course, adored him for :)

Then, there was this weird little critter Evan found. We asked the life guard what it was, after trying to google it, yep, iPhones on the beach!! What did we ever do before the iPhone?? I don't remember, really!

Of course, we did family pics!!! Our Nana & Big Guy will be celebrating the big 50 year anniversary this year, so we tried to get a real good picture of us all!

We also took a trip down the long pier between Destin and Ft. Walton!! It was so cool to be able to see straight down into the water, at all the different fish and sting rays!! Yep, you guessed it, BB snoozed, the whole time, on Pop!!

Our little vacation ended on Sunday, which just happened to be Mother's Day!! We found Lottie this adorable frame, and put the five generation picture of Memaw, Mawmaw Jerry, Lottie, Evan and Aaden from 2 years before on Mother's Day when Aaden was only 4 weeks old!!

This is what I consider a successful trip!!! Aaden was worn out!!

We had a BLAST!! Cannot wait to hit the sand next year, except, next year, I will have TWO little men, running around like crazy!! What's not to love about that though, never a dull moment, that's for sure!!

With Love,
Courtney :)
