Beach 2011

We just got back from an awesome trip to Destin with David's sister Traci and her two boys, Hunter and Bradley. We were so excited that they invited us down and were glad to get away for a few days. Delaney had not been to the beach since she was about 8 months old so I was eager to see what she would think about it. We left after my 5:00pm class on Thursday night so we didn't get there until about 11:00pm. Delaney stayed awake almost the entire trip watching her Mickey Mouse DVD, and finally fell asleep when we were about 15min from the condo. She was a little confused about why it was taking so long to get there and kept saying she wanted to go to the beach. I promised her first thing in the morning we would walk over and see it.

We woke up early the next morning and she was talking about seeing the beach immediately. Once we got to the beach for the day Delaney wasn't to sure what she thought about the sand, but once she started playing she was fine. The next day she did not like it as much and was not excited about being dirty. We hung out at the pool a lot while we were there and she loves to swim! Delaney had so much fun hanging out with her Aunt Traci and her cousins. They were so patient with her and played with her a ton while we were at the beach with them. We had so much fun and can't wait to go back in a couple of weeks with Gigi! Here are some pictures from the trip.

I told her to show me on her face how excited she was to see the beach the first morning!

Summer is here!

I have been a slacker in the picture taking department lately and we haven't been doing to much this summer so far besides swimming and playing outside. We have a membership to Alabama Adventure and Delaney is loving it so far this year. We have only been twice, and by the second time she was going down the big water slide all by herself and we could not get her off of it! She is out of school for the summer and hanging out with Daddy in June while I finish my last two classes for my Master's! Yay! I'm so glad I will be done for good at the end of June. Now if I can just find a job we will be all set.

Delaney was also in her first wedding at the of April. She was the flower girl in Clair Weaver's wedding. We love Clair and John and were so excited that we got to be a part of their special day. I wasn't sure what Delaney would do because she had to walk down the aisle all by herself (no ring bearer with her) and they got married in a cathedral church downtown so the aisle was really long! She did amazing, like she had done it a million times!! It was like she knew she had a job to do and she was going to get it done. She even kept the same pace walking slowly down the entire time. I was really shocked and so proud of my big girl! Here she is dancing the night away at the reception after a job well done.

We are going to the beach this weekend with David's sister Traci and we are so excited. We didn't get to go to the beach at all last year because I had so many classes to take and we are so ready! I plan to take lots of pictures since Delaney hasn't been to the beach when she was big enough to remember. We plan on plenty of swimming, relaxing and family time this summer!
