We just got back from Seaside, Florida with John David's family and we had a wonderful time! It's truly one of my favorite places on earth! We got married there 4 years ago, so it makes it even more special to go back year after year. And, this year was extra special because it was Lyla's first time to the beach! (other than last year, in my belly)
It poured rain the first two days, but that didn't stop this crew from having a great time! We hung out on our balcony, played bananagrams, read (I started the BEST book...A Voice in the Wind, by Francine Rivers...go read it NOW!), shopped, and even went to the movies (Grown Ups...so funny)
Since we couldn't go to the beach, we just played in the rain on our balcony!
By the third day, we finally made it out the the beach and Lyla LOVED the ocean! Could stay out there all day long, happy as can be! She wasn't too sure about the sand the first few days...she would just prefer to stay on her towel and play with her toys, which made things easier on us! But, by the last two days, she got over it, and was crawling all over, getting covered in sand. :) Here are a few beach shots...
This is what she cruised around the town in the entire week. She felt pretty cool, waving at everyone as we passed:
Fourth of July Parade:
(We love America!)
We took a picture just like this, in this exact spot, last year. Except last year, John David had his hands on my pregnant belly, and this year....
John David and I had a date night at The Red Bar, and decided it was one of our favorite dates we've ever had! There was an incredible bluegrass band playing at the restaurant and the food was oh so delicious!! I love this man:
YAY SEASIDE!!!! Until next year...
