Our first beach vacation…
Aaaahhhh….looks nice, doesn’t it?
It was – It was really great. A friend of mine rents out her condo in Panama City. She offered it to us for a great deal that we couldn’t pass up. She told me about it on Wednesday and we were there on Monday after Easter. It was a really spacious one bedroom condo on the 14th floor of a beautiful resort. The girls slept on the bunk bed in the hall and loved every second of sleep on there. I was nervous about them sleeping, but they did great, and we had an awesome vacation, just the 4 of us. We didn’t do much, I cooked and we went out for ice cream. Marielle really enjoyed the sand on the beach, Aliza not so much. She cried the first several days and we had to separate and I went to the pool with her while Jon did the beach with Marielle. Finally on the last day, we were tired of that and took Aliza to the beach. She eventually warmed up to it and stopped fussing about it. She even got in the water a little!!
I have tons of pics so I’ll get right to it…
On Wednesday afternoon of our trip, we went to visit some of our friends that live in Santa Rosa beach. It took us about 40 minutes to drive there and the girls has a great time. They devoured the fruit tray that Carol brought out, Marielle tore into Gracie’s makeup, they loved the trampoline, their electric car and the bay was also a hit. It was a great visit and I’m really glad we got to see some old friends.
After our visit, we had some rain and some cloudy weather the next morning. So we opened up the couch bed and watched a little Shrek. It was a nice and relaxing morning.
To sum up our little vacation – we had a great time together! I already can’t wait for the next beach vacation with my little family!!
