Sand, Surf and Fun!

Our summer has been off to a fun start!  After celebrating Jack's 7th birthday, we headed to Destin, FL for a few days.  My dad had a conference there so we went down to mooch off them keep Grammy from getting too bored.

And it was anything but boring!

We immediately started our sea shell hunt


followed by a refreshing dip in the waves


And some of the waves were pretty big!


Jack learned how to boogie-board.  Yes, I taught him.  You probably don't know this but I am an expert boogie-boarder.


And what would a trip to the beach be without a rockin' sand castle!


What fun trips does your family have planned this summer?

The water looks so pretty! That is an awesome sand castle too:) We love going to Destin, but this year we decided to stay a little closer to home so we only made it to Pensacola Beach.

That sounds (and looks) like you had an amazing time! The sand looks so soft and gorgeous. And the waves! Woohoo!!!
Glad you were able to soak in some sun and fun!
