We had the best time in Pensacola this week. We got together with Kyle's family... 14 of us in this incredible beach house. Beach in front, fishing in back.
There were several firsts on this trip. Hayes, Embry and Ellie experienced their first plane ride... Mommy and Daddy experienced their first thoughts of leaving someone at the airport intentionally.... but I won't point any fingers. Just kidding. I think. :)
Embry and Ellie experienced the beach for the first time. They preferred the sand over the water. Hayes couldn't get enough of the water, which was a complete one-eighty from last year. Kyle and I loved watching him enjoy himself so much.
It was a bit crazy at times with all the kids, but it was such a special time that we are so thankful for... the walks on the beach, jumping across the dock with no one falling in, Peg Leg Pete's, celebrating Maddox's first year, color-shift hot wheels, the shirts that Laura made for the kids, the Hello Kitty dvd, Kyle's olives, catching flounder off the back dock, outdoor showers, collecting sea shells and relaxing on the balcony.
I think my favorite day was Friday. It started out with an off-shore fishing trip with the boys, followed by a massage with the girls. We had the best dinner that night at Flounder's... delicious food right in the sand.
Thank you Grandpa and Nana for an amazing trip.
This is the stuff memories are made of. :)
We love you guys,
Kyle, Trisha, Hayes, Embry & Ellie
