July 9th through the 16th we spent time at Madeira Beach with my family. Mimi and Papa rented a gulf front condo and we had a blast. It was especially fun for Bowen and Caroline this year. They LOVE the beach. Not just the pool, but they have a special love for the small "west coast" waves. Even Davis got in on the action. He would sit on the shoreline as long as I would let him (SUNBLOCK!!!!)and smack the water with his fists and laugh.
We got in quite a routine while we were there. We were on the beach by 9 am, back up at the condo for naps by 1pm, and back down at the beach by 4 pm (EVERY DAY!!!). We all gathered on the balcony around 8 pm to enjoy the sunset. Bowen and Caroline would say, "good night sun" and then head to bed.
I had to include this photo. Here you will see my smiling baby boy enjoy the shoreline while his "always up to something sister" is stuffing his crack with muddy beach sand (peeking out of this bathing suit). Nice!
