Memorial Day Beach Trip
We were very excited that we got to go to the beach for the long Memorial Day weekend. We went to Gulf Shores with my parents and had a really nice time! It was a little different due to the fact that Emmy is still so young. We didn't have as much flexibility and we did the best we could to keep her to her schedule- she still eats and sleeps a lot!
The kids' sleep schedule were both off so we were up VERY early in the morning. But at least this is the view we got to see at 5:30 in the morning!
Jackson had such a great time. He loved every minute of it and was so much more into it than last year. While he had fun last year he was still somewhat timid about the sand and the ocean and the pool. This year he just jumped right in and played.
He loved the pool time with his daddy- even getting his face and hair wet which he wouldn't dare do last year!
Emmy fell asleep wherever we went. After an early morning on the beach she fell asleep while we were walking back to the room.
But she really loved being in the pool. She just hung out and kicked her feet. She was really cute in her swimsuit!
We are so thankful we could get away for a long weekend and spend some time at the beach. We had a great time!
(In the above picture Emmy is wearing the first dress that I made for her back before she was even born. That makes this dress very special to me. I hope to make more soon!)
