After our week in Destin, we headed on over to Seaside for another incredible week with John David's family. We had become quite the beach bums by the end of the week. My girls grew more and more used to the sand and LOVED swimming in the ocean. I was soaking it up because they are at such fun, independent ages and just played so well on their own and with their cousins...allowing this 33 week pregnant mama actually relax under the umbrella! And now for lots of pictures...
Baby Van got to come at only 2 weeks old! He could not have been more perfect and Lacey wins biggest trooper of the trip!! They are naturals at the whole parenting thing!!
John William is SO FUNNY :)
Lowen enjoyed lots of beach naps on Pop :)
Patty Cake with the twins!
These 2 played so sweetly together all week...watching their friendship and love for each other absolutely melts this Mama's heart!! Lyla did such a good job caring for Lowen and helping her in the ocean.
I mean, those. booties.
All the "big kids" got to go out to eat one night while the grandparents kept the kiddos. Definite highlight of the trip!! The food was amazing, and we laughed all night.
Headed to the 4th of July Parade!!
That night, we ate pizza at the Fakouri's and watched the fireworks from their balcony that overlooked the ocean. SO much fun!!
