Are y'all sure we can't stay down here?!

We headed down to the beach for 5 days the Wednesday before last (the 12th) and had a BLAST! Jonathan and I were so excited about taking Baylor down for his first trip. We stayed in Seagrove with my mom, brother, sister-in-law, and the boys. We had PERFECT weather the whole time. Baylor did so good the whole trip. I was a little worried I knew that my "normal" beach days ( staying on the beach for 8 hours straight) were over now that I have a baby. We still got a lot of beach time. We took his baby pool from home which has a shade on it. He loves playing in it and so did his cousins. I sat in there a lot with him too. He took a couple naps on the beach as well. One time completely covered from head to toe with a towel and hat. I was so worried about him getting burned. He got a little sun the first day which luckily went away by the next morning. He also took a nap in the pool while floating! I've stated several times on here that he loves the water and he didn't prove us wrong during our trip.

We did so many things while we were down there. We visited many places along 30A. We made several trips to Seaside which was less than a minute down the road from where we stayed. We did some shopping while there. We ate in Seaside 3 different times (Bud and Alley's Pizza Bar, Pickles, and The Great Southern) throughout our stay too. We at breakfast in Grayton one morning ( at Another Broken Egg). 2 nights we headed over to Pier Park in Panama City to eat at Guy Harvey's and Margaritaville. Jonathan and I were the only one's who had been to Margaritaville so we wanted to take everyone. Especially the boys. We knew they would LOVE it. It is such a fun atmosphere. Then one night we headed to Destin. We stopped by the outlets, ate at one of our all time favorites (The Back Porch), and then headed to the track to let the boys ride some rides. I was shocked by how brave they were. They rode everything even the kiddie Ferris heel. Even though it's a kiddie ride. It was still pretty high. They are fearless!

It was just a GREAT trip. We made so many special memories with Baylor. We can already tell he's going to love the beach as much as we do. We can't wait to head back down the summer!
Hope you enjoy the pictures... I think I took close to 300. Those of you that know me well aren't suprised by that. You can NEVER have to many pictures!
