We just got back from our vacation in Florida! What a wonderful week. We had rented a condo in Destin, but got a little scared of the oil. So.....thanks to my wonderful husband, he found us a house in Mexico Beach (on down from Panama City) the day we were suppose to leave. We wanted to go on further down to make sure we made it through the week oil free. We Did! We did not see one bit of oil. Destin ended up being ok for the week, but it was a nice change for us to visit somewhere different. Mexico Beach is pretty secluded and quiet. We were able to enjoy the beaches during the day and then head into Panama City Beach for dinner and entertainment. The Kirkpatrick's and they Young's went with us this year. Avery absolutely LoVeD the beach and ocean this year. He would run into the water and just jump in! We had so much fun watching him.

One night, we all watched the sunset and played paddle ball on the beach. Here is a pic of Kayla and Amber.
We rode go-carts 2 nights in Panama City Beach. This was Avery's absolute favorite thing that we did. He wanted to ride the "race cars!"
Our first night on the beach.
The view from our bedroom! The first morning we woke up, we saw about 15 dolphins swimming by. It was beautiful!
Brian enjoyed some fishing during the week. The guys also went on a deep sea fishing trip one day.
We also went to Ripley's Believe it or Not.
Our lovely Beach House!
Avery loved being buried in the sand. He could hardly wait for you to get him covered up before he busted out!
I am so thankful we were able to make it to the beach this year before the oil hit. It's so sad to know what is coming. I tried to enjoy every moment! Baby Update: We are 30 weeks along with baby Sutton. I go for a doctor's appointment this week. It is my last 4 week appointment. Then it's every 2 weeks. I can't believe we only have 10 weeks to go!
