Our Paradise Vacation

We just got back from vacation last weekend. It was great. It was beautiful. It was relaxing. Then, we had to come back to real life. Boo. Anyway, we went to the beach in Destin, Florida. I really cannot think of a more relaxing place on earth besides the beach! I could sit on the beach everyday for the rest of my life!!! Luckily, we only live a few hours from 3 different beaches so we are usually able to make it down at least once a year. But this year, for the first time (other than our honeymoon...) we were able to vacation for an entire week! Woo Hoo! We went down with my mommy-in-law, brother-in-law, sis-in-law and their two boys (aka two of my adorable nephews)! We all had a great time : )

The first night we walked down to the beach to take a little walk. The smell of the ocean and the sounds of the waves make me so happy! The next morning we were up bright and early to pack up and hit the beach. I do have to admit this...a day at the beach with kids, and especially a baby brings on a whole new meaning  to spending a day at the beach. Our "day" at the beach really only ended up being "a couple of hours" at the beach, ha! Ella Grace did pretty well the first day we were out there. It took her a little while to settle down to take a nap, but once she did...she was out! Here are pictures of our first day of vacation!
