Okay, so I had planned on blogging our beach trip out in nice little organized posts...like starting with the departure, then going into day one etc., etc,. but, I got waaay to lazy for that haha! So, here is our beach trip all in one! I did try to give it some organization, so it isn't too overwhelming!
Beach Hats for the Boys
Beach Hats for the Boys
This picture is a little dark, but I had to post it. We would line the boys up at the front door and yell, "on your mark, get set, GO!" they would run their stumpy little legs as fast as they would go...I bet they did it a million times and it was precious every time :)
We cooked every night of the trip except one. Mom grabbed a cookbook and planned out a menu on the drive to Destin. We were able to buy groceries for the meals she had planned out... it actually worked out really great. Bennett and Michael are about as much fun as getting sand in your crack when it comes to eating out, so we just played it safe and stayed in :)
Down by the Beach...
We had red flags most days... this day was a nice, calm water day, so we took advantage and everybody got in!
There was a sand sculpting contest down the beach one day. Mom took the girls down to check it out
One of our favorite restaurants to eat at is Louisiana Lagniappe. We try and go there every year. This was our one night to eat out. Good thing for the dock, ducks, hermit crabs and large birds...the boys had some entertainment.
Drew saw a girl painting faces, so of course she had to have hers done! I was all about it and excited for her too... then I looked at the price!! 26.00 bucks for this masterpiece!! Now, I will say this is way more detailed than your typical heart, balloons etc. but 26.00?! Of course I had already told her yes so there was no backing out, but in my mind I was thinking "in about 15min. you're going to want to go play in those fountains right behind us and this 26.00 is going to go washing down your face" And yes in about 15min it did go washing down her face, but this picture of her is totally worth 26.00 :) !!
Bennett and the Bat
Some how or another Bennett got a hold of Laci and Megan's wiffle ball bat... and became a total menace on the beach!! He would chase anyone and everyone who would run! In the picture above he had just whacked poor Michael in the head and in the picture below... well Laci's expression shows it all :)
