Destin 2011 {Part 2...finally}

Sorry for the lack of blogging...
got distracted;). Or lazy...
The rest of our Destin trip (from over a month ago) in possibly my longest post ever.

A visit to Seaside.
Beautiful, very cool houses.
Super nice shopping.
Very HOT.
But it was a lot of fun.

Driving home, we caught this sight out our rearview mirrors.
Skylar & her dad on a trip in their really cute little car.
He said it was really hot too.
But no one seemed to mind...

The next day was spent shopping.
We needed a few days rest from the beach due to parents who were sunburned:/.

We hit up a favorite burger place, Johnny Rocketts.
And apparently waited too long to eat.

After shopping, we ran to the fish market before naps, to pick our evening meal.

Tucker waved goodbye to all the little "shi-shies" as we left.

After dinner, we grabbed dessert with a certain favorite sister & family.
Tucker thought it was a great idea...

We miss him.

The next morning, we were back at it.
Just chillin'.

And making the birds go crazy over grapes.
Tucker thought they were chasing the sand he was throwing at them.
I thought it was a nice break from chasing him down from trying to throw sand at his sister.

Parker thought it was hilarious that they loved grapes.
We were quite a spectacle for a few minutes.

That night, also known as Chad & Crystal's last night, we headed out for family pictures.
And, of course, it decided to rain.

Thankfully it just sprinkled.
No beautiful sunshine in the background, but we did get the ocean & sand.


The only smile he gave all night.

They crack me up.

Later that night, we headed to the harbor to feed the fish & walk around.

On our last full day, we spent the morning saying goodbye to the Keeteman's, then headed down for one last day of play.
Tucker was standing next to a "castle" I made for him.
No sense in working on it, cause, here's what happens:
Got it!

Last night with dinner at the Crab Trap.
Man we eat a lot on trips.
It's a cool, crabby place, right on the beach.

And, surprisingly, everyone ate & enjoyed themselves.

A few shots behind the restaurant...

then we were off to pack up for our drive home early the next morning.
Oh, and don't worry.
We made sure our monkey did not fall over the side of that bench.

And, because this picture was way out of order, or because this summed up his beach experience this year,
I give you one last picture of my son throwing sand.
On top of fish.
While his sister was not watching...
don't think a sandbox is in our near future.
Just sayin'.
