Day 4 - Wednesday

We went to the beach again on Wednesday morning, but we didn't even bother putting on our suits because we were only going to be there for a little bit. My big agenda for the morning was putting out the shells for Macie to find. Don't get me wrong, there are lots of shells on the beach where we were. One of the many great things about Cape San Blas is that it is very secluded. On the busiest day, we could only see 21 other people as far as we could see. We were able to take lots of walks and find some awesome shells. But I still wanted Macie to have that magical experience and I wasn't disappointed. She hasn't stopped talking about it since! Brian placed the starfish a little too close to the water though and Macie wouldn't go up there until we made her. When she saw the star fish, she lit up! Brian also put another cool shell my dad found the night before. She didn't want to let go of the star fish and even took it to Miss Julie's to show her today. Another highlight of the morning was when Aunt Annie dug a hole to put Gavin in. Macie wanted to get in too and she ended up burying herself. I thought she may freak out, but she didn't. We stayed at the beach until lunch. While the kids were napping, we all showered and got ready for an afternoon in Apalachicola.

The story of the week: Macie HAD to put her sandals right by Aunt Addie's (aka Allie) "Look Mommy, I found a truck!"

She was so excited!

Gavin didn't mind being in the hole
I think Gavin had squinty eyes for the whole trip!
