What a Trip!

It is hard to believe that our vacation is already over! We had such a great time. The kids loved riding on the airplane. They were not scared at all and were so well behaved. Dominic had such a big grin getting on the plane that my dad said he could see his cheeks from behind! SO cute.

The condo that we stayed at was wonderful. Looking out our front balcony was the beach and the side balcony the pool. It was the perfect location for us. Dominic just loved the ocean. You would never have guessed that this was his first trip to the beach. He swam with all the big boys with no fear. (I sat comfortably in my beach chair and watched- yeah, I am a wimp!) He even went on his first roller coaster ride at Bush Gardens

Allison looooved collecting shells. She sang the same little tune every time she hunted for them. She and Grandma came back with three huge cups! She absolutely loved swimming in the pool and hanging out in the hot tub. Maddi really liked the sand once she got used to it. Digging and putting sand in her bucket with her shovel were her favorites. She did sit on the shore and let the water hit her feet.

Chris and I really enjoyed watching our kids explore and enjoy the beach for the first time. We will remember it forever!!

Jack had his first trip to the beach last year, he was 18 months at the time and he hated the sand and the water, he just wanted to be in the pool. I was born in Florida, then moved to TN, and we would always go to Daytona Beach, FLA every summer, now we go to Panama City Beach, FLA. Looks like you and your family had a blast, congrats on your first beach trip.
