The weekend of October 16th we went to Port St. Joe, Florida. My brother was on vacation down there and invited Matthew, Abigail & I to spend the weekend with him at the beach house. We were SO excited. We went shopping for all sorts of beach stuff: goggles, noodles, a bucket and shovel...the works. I worked a half day on Friday and we drove down after Abigail got out of school and I was finished with work. By 1:00 we were on the road. We got down there at about 8:30. Abigail was so excited to see Uncle D and his friend Melissa.
On Saturday morning we woke up with a mission....the beach! Unfortunately, when we stepped outside it was about 60 degrees. My hard-headed child insisted that we still go, so we loaded in the car and headed to the beach. When we got there, it was even colder on the water. Abigail refused to get in the water. (It was actually warmer than the air was.) We ended up wrapping her in towels and putting a long sleeved shirt on her. We made the whole experience fun, even though we froze!
Abigail loved playing in the sand.
When we finally gave up on the beach, we went back to the beach house. We had fun playing cards. After a relaxing afternoon we went out for dinner and to watch some college football.
It was very sad that we couldn't get our Hurricanes on TV even in Florida!!!!!!
When Sunday morning rolled around we were very sad to be leaving. Abigail didn't want to leave her Uncle D!!!! We can't wait for Christmas time...hopefully he'll be able to make it down here to visit us.
Here's a few more pictures from our visit.
