Destin Vacation

We had a great vacation in Destin, Fl! It really was a perfect trip for our family. This was our kids first trip to the ocean and it did not disappoint.  We went with our good friends, Andy and Melody and their kids, J and Z. Seriously, so fun! The kids had a ball and so did we. I am already trying to convince Jason that we need to make this an annual trip!

Before heading in to Florida, we stopped in Alabama to tour the USS Alabama Battleship and submarine. Henry loved it. Edie, not so much. She was ready to get to the beach.

 After some car trouble and a couple hour delay, we made it to our condo.  We threw our stuff down, got on our swimsuits and hit the beach. We spent the next 6 days relaxing and playing.

Henry's 7th Birthday Party

Henry had a Water War birthday party with some of his best buds and their dads. The played dodgeball with water sponges,  had a water balloon and water gun fight, and did some slip-n-sliddin'.  The boys (and dads) had a lot fun! 

I love this boy so much! He is a tender soul, funny, sensitive, and a great friend/brother/son. We love you Henry and are so proud of you!
