Matt and I had a great time alone but also loved it when Davis,Gigi, & Granddaddy man arrived. This is the summer of the great BP oil spill :( While we were there it was projected that some of the oil would arrive on shores in Destin. Fortunately, it we didn’t see or smell any and as luck (or in my book, God's grace) would have it, the oil arrived a few days after we left. We were fortunate to miss it because for the first time ever Davis liked the ocean! That is until he got knocked down by a wave a day into the trip. Then he wanted nothing to do with the water! Oh well, it was fun while it lasted!
Davis also enjoyed the sand, sun, and cool breeze! He built the Island of Sodor in the sand (Thomas’ home for all those non-Thomas fans out there). This really was nothing more than a mound of sand but with his imagination it was truly a masterpiece.
There were tons of helipcopeters flying overhead while we were there searching for oil in the water! For most people this would put a damper on their beach time but for Davis this was a highlight! We didn't spend a lot of time at the pool until the last day. I wish we had spent more time because Davis loved it & was very sad to leave!
As a matter of fact, I think we were all a little bummed to leave BUT we did have this little face to look foward to and he did not disappoint!
