a day week at the beach

An entire month ago we returned from vacation to the beach. It was our very first family vacation, and really could not have been any more amazing or perfect. We drove down to stay at the Sells' condo on Thursday, July the ninth. We had an easy ride down, although Camden did whine a bit and refused to sleep until we were almost there. It was just nice to be getting out of Birmingham and away from all work, just the three of us.

We got to the condo, unloaded the car, and had lunch at Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville Cafe. We all enjoyed some delicious burgers, and all of the women doted on Camden. He was being quite the ham! After lunch we were off the the beach. Camden loved the sand, the waves, the sunshine, and we all enjoyed the breeze off of the ocean. The entire time we were there, the weather was just perfect. It was not too hot, breezy, no rain; we could not have asked for anything better!

This is Camden saying "peace" at the restaurant.

Camden loved the water, but seemed to enjoy playing in the sand even more. He played for well over an hour all by himself one day.......adorable!

It was a much needed break, and Aaron and I could not have enjoyed it any more than we did. We are so in love with Camden, and are so thankful that God blessed us with the perfect little boy for us.

Probably of no surprise to you, but your sweet post brought tears to my eyes. I love how much you love your boys!!! What a great trip! Don't you wish we all could live at the beach? I wonder why I didn't appreciate living there when I did?

It looks wonderful and as always, Camden looks as sweet as ever. I loved how blue the water was!
