Destin, then off to Gulf Breeze

We finished up the end of our vacation in Gulf Breeze, Florida (just outside of Pensecola)
(Fresh out of the pool and taking a glimpse at the vastness of the ocean)

I wasn't sure what to expect as we have never been to the area before.

We stayed at the Hilton and the best part is there was a zero entry kids pool.
Such a helpful big sister she is!! 

I am sad to say we didn't even go down to the beach once with the kids.

The pool was that awesome!!!
We spent the first day/night hanging out with my mother in law and uncle j! 

We grabbed a bite to eat at McGuire's which never disappoints! 
 Then they headed back home (about an hour away) 

Next morning we headed to the bay for some quick pictures! 
This is one I will treasure for all eternity! 

The love they have for each other is unreal! 
A girl and her baby! 
After pictures we all came back to the room for nice long naps! 

Then packed up to spend a couple days with the inlaws!!

Such a fun vacation!! 

Got to meet some sweet friends in real life.
Most importantly, I made myself drink in my time with my babies!!

Seaside and Sandestin

Whew.. Taking a quick naptime break to recap our past week!!

After leaving nashville we drove through Birmingham to meet up with one of my college roommates, A and her sweet little family. We cannot wait for baby #2 to arrive!!
(ps we are both squinting, kids were fussy, etc. a quick picture was a must so we snapped and went with it!)

From there we were on our way to Sandestin.

Sister kept us in stitches reading one of my workout books.

She was telling us to crunch our legs up, look at the sky then grab some pounders and PUSH... now PUSH. 

I am afraid to ever show her Richard Simmons, she will be sweatin to the oldies in no time!

Monday morning we woke up bright and early and hit the outlets!

We lunched and before long the clouds had cleared and it was time to hit the beach!

C bug was super... excited to get his toes in the sand.

and baby... not so much at first!

Within no time he had warmed up to the sand and was Loving it!!

Crazy brothers before grabbing dinner at Great Southern in Seaside.

Brothers meet for tea at Just Duckies in Seaside

Waiting on our shrimp n grits!

Our first official night was fun overall, we packed alot of fun into the day and made sure to wear the little ones out!

Next up tuesday and wednesday!

Orange Beach 2013

We decided to break tradiditon this year and hop over to Orange Beach, Alabama.

We had such a great time relaxing and hosting caseys family here and there. (they live 45 minutes away in Daphne, Alabama.)

Aunt Krista got to meet baby Whit for the first time and we are SO glad she lives closer now!!
And yes, Connor hopped of the boardwalk and sat down and started playing in the sand. He LOVED it!!

One of things I remember thinking when laying in the hospital a few weeks ago was I am never going to get to see my babies play in the ocean again. 
My happy place, so to have this sweet picture (even if I have a TON of baby weight to loose) means thw whole world to me!
Action shot!! This fella had us in stitches the entire time!

Sister discovered sandcastle making!!
We probably made 10!!! IT was soooo fun!!!

Noone was here. Weather was perfect. 

It was truly amazing!!

We were sooo lucky to have our photographer meet us down there and snap a few quick pics. Cant wait to get them back and share with you.

Orange Beach. An iPhone recap

We are so glad we got to get away for 8 days and relax as a family! 
Stopping in Mobile to visit with pawpaw and eat at Cracker Barrel. I let my hair down and let the kids play in the rain after lunch! They had so much fun!!
We did a little shopping while in mobile and I may or may not have gotten in the Christmas spirit bb 
Don't you love these lamp shades?? Saw these at Kirklands! 
Next morning hubby and I got up and headed over to destin for a night to celebrate our 5 year anniversary!
Baby went with us and we spent a lazy afternoon at the beach. Soo needed!!!
On Labor Day we met Mimi and the big kids in orange beach. (She met us there and played for the day!) 
Uncle Jackson (hubby's half brother) caught a pin fish with a French fry. C bug assisted in the big catch and was sooooo proud of their catch!!!!

This gloomy morning turned out to be an amazing low 80's day at the beach! 
We made sand castles, and dug holes, and drank lots of pink lemonade ;)
Silly fella!
