We started the trip with a 5 hour drive ahead of us - and LOTS of traffic. I must admit we were pretty nervous about the ride down and the stay - the last time we ventured to the beach Catherine Ellis was 5 months old (Labor Day weekend) and she quit sleeping through the night (of course the beach didn't make her stop, but we feel like getting off schedule probably did!). So after lots of prayer, we headed out Friday holding our breath ...... and she did BEAUTIFUL!
Here are a few pics from our ride down:
It took us about 5 minutes to cross over the road to the beach because Catherine Ellis had to wave at every car that passed and even blow kisses at some - she got a lot of honks - we thought it was hysterical and she loved every minute of pretending like she was a queen!
Headed to my next adventure...
That night we met our next door neighbors who were also down at the beach out and had a great time catching up - Catherine Ellis loved the atmosphere and the music and just danced her little heart out.
On Sunday some of our great friends from Pensacola drove over and joined us for the day - the rain moved in late in the afternoon but that didn't stop us - we headed out to eat at Wolf Bay and had a 2 hour wait and it took all 6 adults to entertain Catherine Ellis, and she did great until we finally got seated and then she lost it - she had played her heart out. It was so great to see Erica and Brock - I wish I had more pictures, but it's just hard to entertain a baby and take pictures at the same time.
