Beach 2016 Part 2

We loved our pool and beach time, but we also made more time to get out and do things this year. We hit up the doughnut truck and splash pad in Alys Beach one morning.

 Went to Seaside multiple times (matching shirts and all).

  We  went to Panama City (Pier Park) and on the rainiest day, we hit up Destin for the arcade and pizza followed by the outlets. 

  We quite enjoyed our outings and between the arcade, Game Stop, the Disney outlet, and Duckies, the kids made out like bandits!

Beach 2016, Part 1

We just got back from a wonderful family trip to the beach! There were several things working against our annual summer beach trip this year. Once we finally found a good time and a place that wasn't booked for our time or out of our price range, we thought we were good, then they cancelled our reservation because the place changed ownership. We almost called it off, but we persisted, and we were so glad we did! Although it wasn't long enough, we had a great time!

 The first thing we did was check out the house and the backyard pool!

We got there too early to get in, so we went to Seaside to hit up some of our favorite places, then went to the grocery store. Somehow stocking up at the beach grocery store seems to mark the official beginning of vacation! We were excited!

After we got in and unloaded groceries, we had to go check out the beach, and the cool private beach access!

Another day, another visit to the pool and the beach and lots of way overdue relaxation time!

Springtime Fun!

We'll call this a Spring catch up post. We've done lots of fun things this Spring that haven't made it up here, so here we go. We've been doing things like

Enjoying summer fruits.

Going to a Hammers game!

Touring Baba's offices with Nana and Tata

Running into Lego characters at the gym

Birthday parties and visiting with friends!

Sunday afternoon hikes!

Going to the movies!

Picture Day!

And probably lots of other things that are making me realize how behind I am on blogging! It's been a fun Spring and we're looking forward to summertime!
