Beach Time....

A few months ago my wonderful husband tried to plan a surprise trip to the beach for just the two of us! It didn’t work out for various reasons but I was so touched that he would even try to attempt such a task! So a few weeks later we planned a little get away for just the two of us! However, because there was an error in our reservations we got upgraded to a two-bedroom suite! This didn’t really serve us any good except for the fact that we had been contemplating taking Davis all along but couldn’t make up our mind. So the night before we left it was decided that my parents & Davis would join us a few days into our trip! Noah got the pleasure of staying with Papa& G’Mama and soaking up all the one-on-one attention. We figured he would like this a whole lot more than having to sit on a sandy hot beach while getting restless! I think it was a smart decision though we did indeed miss him!

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!
