Oh Happy Day!

We have been going to the beach on vacation for 5 years. Tim's aunt and uncle have a condo in Destin and graciously allow us to use it for free. It's a perfect location. It's on the beach and has two pools. This set up has been wonderful for us and we have been able to vacation even when we had tiny babies and toddlers.

We arrived yesterday for our annual trip. And we are quickly realizing that this year is different for us. First of all, we got here with only having to stop once and that was to eat lunch. Today was completely different experience for us. They got up early, so after we ate breakfast and got ready we headed out with our gear. Lots of gear but the fun kind. Not bottles, swim diapers, sun tents, etc. Just toys and fun stuff. We went out at 9 and stayed out for 3 hours until lunch. We came in and ate lunch and headed right back out. And we were out until 5. Since we got here yesterday, I have read an entire book and listened to my fav music on my ipod.

We are really cherishing this stage where the girls are very tansportable and easy. We really needed this vacation. We were all worn out from the day to day. And we are having a great time!

Wow - just when I got to that stage, I went and had another baby (and then another) - as will you soon and you'll be back to bottles and naps in the afternoon. It's wonderful in any stage - the trick is to enjoy it while you're there. :) Hope you're having even more fun today!
