Beach Bums!

The beach was a blast. We had great weather and spent many days playing in the sand, going for walks, and enjoying the beautiful scene. Here are some pics!

Kiddie Pool area . . . . also a GREAT area to go snorkeling!

Walking the boardwalk to the beach. You will see more of this later!

I think this was his Yoga pose on the beach . . . funny kiddo!

I guess he is practicing his beach look for when he is a teenager :-). Check out those guns!

Building castles on the beach.

The 2 loves of my life!

We are back from Florida!

We had a WONDERFUL time in Florida. The weather was great . . . and I only took about 1000 pictures and 51 videos. We focused on doing things as a family with Jadon that we would not be able to do as easily when the next little one comes along. Jadon had TONS of firsts and over the next few days I will be sharing stories and pics . . . as I said I have about 1000 pictures.

Last year we caught star fish and hermit crabs and kept them in a little aquarium through out the week. It was fun to watch Jadon watch them and we set them free at the end. This time we stuck to just hermit crabs. We caught over 20 of them so we needed a bigger box. At the end of the week we had to set them free and Jadon had a blast tossing them back into the ocean telling them to go have a big birthday party. It was pure greatness! Here are some pictures of our little man and his pets for a week.

Our Hermit Crab Habitat . . . it was Jadon's idea to add the pine cones . . .

Jadon spent alot of time just sitting in his chair playing with his little pets.
Jadon showing us on of his pets.

And that is our crazy Jadon!

Check back tomorrow for some new Florida pics! There are GREAT ones to come!

We are heading to Florida this week! We are camping at St. Andrews State Park in Panama City. We camped there last year and loved it so much we booked the same exact camp site. Our site is right on the Grand Lagoon. Last year while cooking out over the fire we saw dolphins jumping right in front of our campsite. Jadon is sooooooo excited to head back to the beach, play in the sand and jump in the waves.

Here are some pics from last year . . . . and yes I will post new ones when we get back!

Sunrise view from our campsite!

I love this pic . . . Daddy and Jadon!

Our family on the beach. . . .

4th of July Parades!

Every year the city of Sachse has a 4th of July parade. The parade route is very close to our house and we love to walk over and watch the parade. We have LOVED taking Jadon to them through the years. Here are some pics . . . .
