**First of all...special thanks to Dee Lea for taking all these pictures of us. I never even got my camera out of the car! Thanks, Dee! We had a blast with you and your family!
As you all know, we headed to Florida last week for a family vacation and Sarah VanBebber's wedding. We left on Tuesday EARLY morning and expected to drive part of the way and finish the trip out on Wednesday. However, the girls were SO well behaved in the car, we made it the whole way on Tuesday.
Wednesday morning, we got up and headed out to the beach. We had a great time. Emma LOVED the water, but Hannah wouldn't get out of her beach chair for fear of the sand. It was hilarious. She sat in her chair all day under her umbrella and watched people play. Later that night, we headed back to the beach house for Pizza and Karaoke. It was a blast!
Thursday, more of the same during the day. However, Hannah did decide to get out of her chair and sit in the sand by the end of the day. She still hated the water and just wanted to sit...no digging! Emma was a water bug and made LOTS of pretty sand castles. We also took some family pictures that day...I will post them soon. Thursday night, we went to the Santa Rosa Beach Club for rehearsal dinner. It was so nice! (Pictures of that coming soon)
Friday morning, we went to the beach. Hannah decided she needed to get in the water...FINALLY! She walked out there, holding our hands and laughed so hard every time a wave hit her. Emma was such a big helper on keeping her face OUT of the water. Hannah even thought she was big enough to stand on her own in the water...but I wasn't ready to let her hands go just yet. We had a blast! That night was wedding night...everything was perfect and Sarah was absolutely beautiful! We had a blast a the reception.
The trip back was great as well. The girls were wonderful, however, we did end up stopping...in Little Rock! ha ha! We just needed some rest and Emma was determined that we would stay in a hotel on this trip. Father's Day, we finished the 2 1/2 hour drive home and spent the day playing...and Mommy doing laundry!
We had a wonderful vacation. Our biggest worry was the ride for the kids, but everything was perfect. I couldn't have asked for a better vacation. Enjoy the pics...more coming soon! :)
