There are 2 kinds of beach vacations: before kids/after kids. Totally different and never the same after kids! But today we had a milestone moment. We stayed on the beach or at the pool from 9:30 to 3.30 ish. That's huge for my kiddos and we're finally at the point where we all enjoyed our day today. My dad, who NEVER sets foot on the beach, enjoyed most of the day with us! Mainly due to the fact that Mandy brought her dad's large tailgating tent. And Landry Grace even took her nap under the tent. I even got to enjoy the sun for an hour from a beach chair....!!!! Our condo has a pretty neat pool area, complete with lazy river and waterslide that the kiddos are all taking advantage of. What a great day and hope I'm not jinxing the rest of our trip!
