Beach Trip / 6 months

We had our first family vacation July 21-28th in Gulf Shores, AL. We stayed at Wes' grandparents condo at the Beach and Yacht club at Perdido Bay! It was a significant trip on many levels...
1. Weston's first trip to the beach!
2. Weston turned 6 months old during the trip!
3. I hadn't been to the beach since my senior year in high school...8 years ago!!
4. Our first family vacation just the 3 of us!
We had so much fun creating memories together! We spent very little time at the beach during the heat of the day, but would go out early in the am and late in the evenings. We loved taking walks on the beach at night with Weston strapped to us in the Bjorn. We found a sand-dollar while on a walk one night! We at at LuLu's (Jimmy Buffet's sister's restaurant) Crap Trap, and Cobalts. Cobalts was our favorite. It was least expensive and it was on the Bay so we could see the big fishing boats coming to and from! Wes enjoyed several rounds of golf with his friend Jeff Henard who was staying about 25 miles away! I did, unfortunately, get sick in the middle of the week, but I tried not to let it ruin our time. I had a fever and severe sore throat, but I still managed to sink my toes in the sand every day! I think we will make that trip a family tradition each summer!

First time to see the beach/ put toes in sand and water!

"I'm ready to go to the beach ma!"

"Ok, NOW i'm really ready!"

"I could get used to this! Cool breeze in my face, shades to protect my eyes! I love it here!"

Happy 6 months to our precious bundle of complete JOY!!
