Our First Family Vacation!!

We left on a Monday after work to meet up with some friends in Sandestin. We drove through the night, which worked out perfectly for Owen... He slept the whole way, and was able to stay on his normal sleep schedule. We arrived at about 8:00 am, just in time to unpack and load up for the beach. We were a little worried about hauling a 4 month old to the beach, but the worst part turned out to be hauling all the stuff associated with taking a 4 month old to the beach! Luckily we were with some good friends who helped lug stuff.

Owen absolutely loved being at the beach. Once we got all of his stuff down to the beach he had a great setup. He had a tent and umbrella with a pad and blanket for naps, a baby pool to stay cool, since he can't quite handle the waves yet, and all the attention he could stand! Owen already loves being outside, and the commotion of the beach kept him entertained.

We all had a great time as well, it was our first trip back to the beach since our wedding over two years ago! The whole trip was packed with great fun, food, and company, hopefully the second annual beach vacation will be in the works soon...
