Our family adventures

Beachin’ it

We spent our first evening in Florida, Wednesday, playing in the waves at sunset.

Allie really enjoyed playing in the ocean on Wednesday night. The waves were bigger as the week went on, so she wasn’t a fan of the ocean after that.
057
I was looking forward to seeing a sunset on the beach. This one didn’t disappoint!

Peyton really enjoyed the ocean too.

That is, until a wave hit him in the face. Then he wanted to get out.

067
After that Peyton was happy playing in the sand. He also decided he liked eating it. I tried my best to stop him but I admit, he probably ate some.
069
Our condo was on the 18th floor. That’s a tall building!

Beach sunset!
072
We were out the next night at sunset and on Friday the sunset wasn’t quite as great because it was cloudy. I’m glad we got to see this one!
073
Allie waited for weeks to use her beach towel.

We spent most of Thursday on the beach. It was wonderful! We rented some beach chairs and played in the waves and headed up to the condo when we needed to.
081
Allie had a great time playing in the sand.
082
I split my time between the water and the lounger.

084
Oh my goodness, she looks so old in this picture!
085
The best part of our arrangement was that we could head up for lunch and then put Peyton down for a nap, essentially without leaving the beach. While Peyton slept, I enjoyed this view. Well, after I tidied up.

Once we were all sufficiently exhausted, we headed back upstairs to clean ourselves up and get ready for dinner.
089
Peyton enjoyed playing all over the place.
090
Maybe his favorite part was the TV cabinet… well, after the remotes. And there were about eight remotes around this condo!
091
With Cousin Carson!
094
This is as close as Peyton got to the balcony most of the time.

098
We went to Pier Park, a big shopping center, for dinner at Dave & Buster’s. We wanted to go to a different place but we found that traffic was terrible and we were hungry.

Peyton liked playing with Grandpa and his hat!
101
After dinner we walked down to Kilwins for ice cream.
103
Those high heels are chocolate! I wonder if people actually pay $30 for them?
104
And more beautiful chocolates!

The ice cream was great too!
