After we left my dad's we headed towards our beach destination! We haven't been on a family beach trip since Emery-Claire was a baby. Casey is not a huge fan of the beach, but he was willing to go this time.....though taking 3 small children (and we did have Casey's mom go too) we weren't sure how smoothly things would go, and hoping we'd get some alone time together too. So on the way down to the gulf we stopped in south Georgia to have lunch with some dear friends. Kathy is probably one of my best friends, and I'm so thankful for our friendship! It was great to see her (it has been a little over a year ago that I brought Mary Etta and came down to visit her).
Our girls "meeting".....Our oldest (Reed & Addison are about 3 months apart) used to have play dates lots while we lived close and before they moved away about 3 years ago. We were both pregnant with these 2 girls when they moved (and they are about 6 months apart). Now EC at
3 years and Isabelle 2 1/2 years, we know they seem to have similar personalities and would probably be the best of friends if we all lived in the same town. It was so fun to see them interact and engage with each other.
Finally we arrived in Seagrove.......I do just love the gulf coast! It was late afternoon when we got there so we took the kids down to the beach to explore and see the ocean. They seemed so excited to run in the sand and feel the warm sand in their toes.
