I love any beach, but I have nothing but good things to say about Destin. Being from SC, I really don't have experience with FL beaches. Now, I am head over heels with the soft white sand and turquoise water. We went with the Pombos. Mat and Seth are competitors in Grand Am and Beth and I hang out at the track with the kids. Both our older and younger kids are just days apart. We had a blast spending some off-track time together and I hope we do another trip with them in the future!
We left Friday night and stayed at a hotel in Dothan, AL. It was a short drive Saturday morning to paradise.
|We couldn't check into our house until 4 pm (why do they always get you with the late check-in and early check-out...no fair!), so we ate lunch at a beachfront restaurant and then hit the beach. Look how cute James and Henry are!|
|Love at first sight....this scenery makes me feel like we were in another country, not just 6 hours from home|
|Our house! Isn't it fabulous? There was a bedroom for everyone and ample space. It was about 3 blocks off the beach, but there was a shuttle to take you to and fro.|
|Henry is almost 2 and already jumps in the pool|
|We spent all morning poolside. The development had a zero entry pool that the kids loved. Here they are taking an ice pop break.|
|We spent the afternoon at the beach.|
|Adelyn is my water baby. She runs straight for it and has a blast!|
|James on the other hand, just wants to "dig dig". He has zero interest in water (pool or ocean). I am hoping that changes as the summer goes on. PLEASE!!!|
|Eli karate chopping the waves. "HI-YA!"...I can hear him now!|
|happy in the sand!|
|And this would be a duct tape thong on a dude. Just thought I'd throw that out there.|
|James wanted to sleep in the bed instead of the pack and play. He's never slept in a bed before. We checked on him before we went to sleep and he'd migrated a tad.|
|Seth is fun in the ocean!|
|Pombo/Thomas First Annual Beach Trip|
Monday night we went to Baytowne Wharf for dinner. What a great little area!

|My little piggies can't share ice cream|
Did I mention how great this trip was? I loved spending precious time with family and friends at my favorite place on earth, the beach!
