Panama City Beach

We were so excited to get to go the beach again this year during the week that Aunt Kaye and her family were down there. We only stayed a couple of days but it was perfect to get my "beach fix" for the summer! The kids absolutely loved it! I have to warn you that this is a picture heavy post! I had lots of favorites and no good way to collage them. Enjoy!

I couldn't get over how much Owen loved the sand and as expected would crawl on ANYTHING! He would take off crawling across the beach and not look back!

I think we have a future swimsuit model in the family! Baylor couldn't get enough of the sand and surf!

One of the folks set up behind us had this great idea of burying a big plasic tub in the sand and fill it with water. It was the perfect cool down spot for the kids.

Katelyn really enjoyed playing in the surf this year!

Of course it didn't take her long to find some friends, as she likes to call "her size", to play with.

Owen even enjoyed a little nap on the beach in my lap. Aw sweet heaven!

One evening Bart & Katelyn went out to ride go-carts with everyone and Owen & I decided to just hang back at the condo. We walked out to the beach around sunset and I just enjoyed watching the surf while he played in the sand. It was a very impromptu outing and the only camera I had on me was my camera phone. Even though this image is not the best quality it is an all-time favorite moment! Man I wished I had had my big camera out there that afternoon!

Our last night at the beach we enjoyed dinner at Pineapple Willy's. Aunt Kaye bought the kids a shirt and it has become one of Katelyn's favorites. She is constantly asking to wear her "Pineapple Willy's shirt"!! It was a fun evening!

While waiting for our table we spent some time listening to a great reggae band. The kids had a blast taking over the dance floor.

Owen was even caught shaking his booty!

When it was time to go home the kids didn't want to leave! Katelyn still talks about the fun she had at the beach this summer!

I didn't do any formal family pictures of us this trip. We are planning to go to Gulf Shores in October for the Alabama Shrimp Festival so I'm hoping to do our annual family pictures then. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that Owen will be walking by then!!
