Destin Trip 2013

We're home and sad to be back at work. We had an amazing week in our favorite place! I would move to Destin in a heartbeat. I just love the sand, water and everything about the beach.

We arrived early Saturday morning. The weather was pretty gross that day but it cleared up later on. We have friends that live there and it just so happened that a big group of us were all there at the same time for a few days so we immediately headed to the beach with them. This was Rilynns first time actually playing in the sand and being in the water and she absolutely LOVED it!

Rilynn loved the sand she didnt care if it was all over her and in her mouth she could have cared less!

Mothers Day was wonderful!! Ri got up extra early which I didn't mind since we were at the beach so we got up and went for a mother/daughter walk on the beach at 5:45am :) It was beautiful! We spent the rest of the day on the beach relaxing...well relaxing as much as possible with a crazy toddler.

 It was such a special moment walking on the beach with her while hardly anyone was up yet!

The next day was the same lots of beach time and hanging out with our friends before they headed home. So here are just a bunch of pictures from our days!

 We all rented a paddle board for the day and each took turns going out and then did tandem turns which was not awesome because Chris flipped us over twice and don't get me wrong I love the ocean I just don't love the things that you cant see swimming around you really far out in the deep parts. I freaked and wanted to go back immediately. There were jelly fish all around and it just creeped me out. It was fun for him tho.

 The gang at Pompano Joe's for dinner the first night.

 The water was so calm the first 3 days it was amazing. Hardly any waves it was beautiful!

 We took Ri to Fud Puckers to see all the alligators and I wish I had it on video but we were trying to get her to say alligator and she would scream " Eh Ella". Pretty funny. Where she also spilled and entire drink all over me that was fun too!

 The left picture is October 2012 and then now. Shes changed a LOT!

 Ri chose the race car for the mary-go-round. She was afraid of the horses.

 The guys did a lot of fishing at night so we did a lot of running around the beach and hanging out. 

All in all it was a great trip and now that I'm back to work I'm sad and miss it. I could stay there forever. We lucked out with the amazing weather for the whole week we were there. We made lots of fun memories and we cant wait to go back next year!
