We went down to Seagrove Beach, Florida at the end of August with sweet friends. We like to call it our OT reunion. We (Me, Stef, Erin and Melody) all met in OT school and haven't missed a beat since. Although we all live in different cities, we make it a point to get together. We decided, hey, let's go rent a house at the beach with our families this summer.
We made a last minute decision to leave at 7:30pm. Everyone wasn't getting there until the next day but we figured why not. We knew Porter would sleep most of the way, which is always a plus. Chris had driven home from Covington that day though and was pretty exhausted. I worked all day as well and came home and packed as quick as I could. It seemed like such a good idea at the time, but we were regretting it around 11pm. We finally made it there about 1am and went to sleep only to wake up hours later to a toddler in an unfamiliar place. We were glad to be there though. We quickly headed to Rosemary to grab coffee and breakfast from Amavida before heading to the beach.
Ready for the ride
We went straight the balcony the next morning to see the pretty ocean view
Notice the hat the wagon. That was the last time I'd ever see that thing, unbeknownst to me
Finally our friends arrived!
Porter and his buddy Emory
The guys went in from the beach early one day with the kids to give us some girl time.
Little did we know we would be taking cover from a massive wind storm
We went to George's in Aly's Beach to eat one night.
Porter was in rare form from little to no naps
I spent most of dinner chasing him around. He did not want to be contained in a highchair. Chris eventually left with him so I could enjoy the rest of my meal, because that's what sweet husbands do.
We went and scooped them back up after dinner to head to the Sugar Shack. Uncle Al did the pushing this time.
Fun in the sun
Exhaustion at its finest
I have an obsession with the Splash pad in Aly's. Probably because its where the amphitheater is with ongoing grass that Porter can run freely in. It's just so pretty over there though.
We got some perks of hanging with a photographer too
We love Stef
We were so sad to leave each other!
Home sweet home
The next morning we took it back to the splash pad because we just weren't ready to see summer go
Too pooped to pop
We came home from the beach with this little pirate doll and a little case of impetigo…oh what joy. It was a wonderful trip though (excuse my hellacious looks).
