Home Sweet Home
We are finally back after 3+ weeks at the beach! We had a wonderful time. Daddy got to stay with us for the 1st 10 days and we truly lived in the moment each day. We didn't even "count down" the days left with him, and all of a sudden, we were like "Oh - it's Sunday. Patrick is leaving today." The weather was great - not too hot, not too cold. Great pool temp, great wave temp. This year was so much better than last year since the kids were easier to manage. Gavin LOVED the waves and going in with Daddy for some wave jumping and Evie liked going just up to the edge without really going in. She also did not roam all over the beach like last year. This time, she stayed within a short radius and stayed right near us. Since it is still so early in the summer, we missed the vacation crowds and got the pool to ourselves most days, front row spots at the beach cabana, and prime time beach spots to sit.
We did all the typical things: beach, pool, mini golf (which was Gavin's favorite), ice cream, shopping, etc - but we also did some new things. We all went to the minor league baseball game, The Pelicans. It was Gavin's (and Evie's) first baseball game and Daddy was so excited to take us. We got great seats (too close to line drive foul balls for me though) and stayed until the 7th inning. It was kid's day - so there were other games for kids to play too. They also had a cool playground to play on.
We loved every minute Daddy could be there with us and we were sad to see him go :-( If you want to see some pictures from our vacation - go here.
