First beach trip!!

I know these pics don't have a thing to do with the beach. Apparently, this was MY favorite shirt to wear when I was about Hunter's age. Had to get a pic before he out grows it!
Last day on the beach! sniff...sniff

Walked to the market and got some ice cream for our afternoon snack.
Our little Tiger!
Eli has the best personality and we had so much fun hanging out with him. We sure wish we all lived a little closer.
Fun while rolling in the sand.

Well, the Simmons clan just got back from Amelia Island, Florida. We spent a week with Kevin, Noelle, and Eli. The York family has a beautiful oceanfront condo at the the Amelia Island Plantation and Resort. This is the same beautiful place where David and I took our honeymoon. It was a bit colder than we would have liked (actually it was record low temps for the area in recorded history...mid 40's) but we had a blast anyway. Hunter loved playing on the beach. He loved digging in the sand, just lying in the sand, chasing the masses of seagulls, running after the waves, and throwing seashells into the water. David and I can't wait to take him back to the beach when the water is actually warm enough to get in. He wasn't the least bit afraid and we think he will really enjoy the water. Some other fun activities we did included, a trip to Fernandina beach and a nice lunch out, daily trips to the playground, and a few puts on the greens surrounding the condo. All was well until Thursday night when Hunter awoke out of the blue with the croup! It was a rough three days, but now he feels fine and it is his mother who is a little under the weather. I wonder how many times a person can blow their nose in one day! Hunter is fascinated with me blowing my nose and either wants to assist or he tries to blow his own nose. It is so funny, he makes this little noise with his mouth and then just laughs! It is the cutest thing.
Right now we are recovering from our fun filled vacation and trying to get back into our little routine. Isn't it funny how you almost always need a vacation from your vacation! For our Abby and Ibis fans, they stayed at Papa and Gaga's house and had a grand ole time, but they too were glad to return home. Ibis has hurt his foot and has been limping since I made an appointment to get him checked out on Friday. I will keep all posted on his progress...
