Beach Trip

12:00 PM

The week of birthday fun continued Thursday afternoon. We loaded up and headed to Panama City Beach. The weather was great - three days of sunny skies and a nice breeze to keep us cool.

It had been about 7 or 8 months since Libby's last trip to the beach. She wasn't sure about the sand and didn't like getting too close to the ocean. We struck up a plea bargain and she agreed to walk on the sand only if she wore her Dora crocs. Deal.

Check out this tutu bathing suit! So darn cute! (Did I mention I LOVE having a girl?)

Friday night we went to Pier Park. We ate at Five Guys Burgers and Fries. It was sinfully good. Libby thought so, too. She must have eaten at least half of Drew's burger. Next time, she's getting her own.

We spent lots of time outside. Libby was up early (and I mean early) each morning telling us, "Outside! Beach! Swimmin'!" Drew tried to explain to her that we had to wait for the sun to rise to go outside. She didn't believe him.

I must admit, the pictures on the beach are deceiving. After the first morning, we spent most of our time in the pool. She absolutely loved it. As she was splashing and kicking around she would announce, "I swimmin'!" Yes, she was!

Saturday night was beautiful! Drew grilled (fresh trout he'd caught that morning and hot dogs) on the patio while we all enjoyed the awesome sunset. Ahh! Repeat after me, "This is the life!"

The only bad thing about going to the beach is that sooner or later, you must leave. We had a great trip and enjoyed spending time with each other. I can't wait to go back soon and do it all again.
