Day 1 - Sunday

Sunday was our first full day in Florida. We started out the morning going grocery shopping. We wanted to get this out of the way so we could enjoy the rest of the week. My mom stayed at the beach house with the kids and the rest of us headed to the Piggly Wiggly in Port St. Joe. My dad had been talking about this grocery store for weeks. After grocery shopping, we went back to the beach house, ate lunch, and put the kids down for a nap. My mom and sisters headed to the beach and we joined them when the kids woke up. We'd been talking to Macie about the beach for a long time and I couldn't wait for them to experience it for the first time. Macie was cute as can be walking to the beach. She was in awe when we got there and started putting her hands in the sand immediately! She wasn't thrilled by the ocean though. The water moving away from her feet freaked her out. Gavin wasn't thrilled by the cold water either. Both were perfectly content sitting in the sand playing. The water was cold, but all of the adults managed to get in for at least a bit. The highlight was that we saw dolphins. We only stayed at the beach for a few hours and then went back for baths and dinner. Allie and Annie made dinner this night and made a delicious pasta dinner. Brian and Dad crashed out the same time as the kids and the girls stayed up talking and watching tv. Our first full day of a vacation was a success!

She started touching the sand immediately!
Macie kept calling the sand "snow"
"What is this stuff?"
Gavin refused to wear his sunglasses

What a stud!
