We had a GREAT time in Destin again this year. The weather was perfect and the beaches were beautiful. Thanks to Grana and Pawpaw for a wonderful vacation!
Loving the fountains at Destin Commons
We had several hours of just us on the beach=PEACE!Brandon=all smilesDinner at Harry T'sFeeding the fishThese boys loved playing in the sandTaking a breakThe water was beautiful and clear...except for the 1st day when there were millions of jelly fish. Literally everywhere you looked!Two cute blondesTrent is recently obsessed with his spiked hair. He puts LOTS of gel in, continuously feels it to make sure it's still standing and asks if it's messed up every few minutesIt is pretty cute, I'll admitAttempt one at family pics on the beach:Trent was afflicted with a terrible eye condition and screamed and cried that his eye hurt?!We threatened, spanked, bargained and bribed with riding go carts....NOTHING worked.
Mama was a litttttttle frustrated.During dinner, Trent (after miraculous healing of his eye occured coincidentally at the same time the camera was put away) began to tell us how much he LOVES getting his picture on the beach. And how he really wanted to get his family's picture made on the sand, and he was going to smile so pretty and look at he camera and his eye would never hurt again...and in short....REALLY wanted to ride go carts. He went around the table and kissed Brandon and I and each of his grandparents and told us how much he loved us!
And because Mama REALLY wanted pics on the beach...we tried again:Guess who was in a bad mood this time?!UGH!!!!
And with that....I gave up!!!
We did, at least, get a good one with their grandparents
Zachary showing off his 'cool' poseTrent showing how sweet he can be.Trent took up boogie boarding this year...he wore Brandon out!Pawpaw loves to play in the water with the boysTrent did not like the feeling of wet swimsuit/ sand combination. He changed clothes 10 times a day. These Buzz Lightyear pj's are his favorites and made an appearance on the beach at one point.Zachary was a pro boarder this year, but I didn't get any cute pics of him doing it???He met a friend from Louisiana and they played for hours.For 2 days, they played so well together and Zachary was sad that he would never see him again. When I asked Z what the guys name was he said, "I didn't catch his name." :)EVERYONE wants to know about the oil and the clean up crews. We saw ONE tar ball the whole 5 days we were there. The crews came by a few times while we were on the beach. We loved their set up. The port a potties on the trailer made me laugh! And I loved how they gathered up under this tent like they were at a funeral.
Fun, fun vacay!! Looking forward to next year already!!!

I am laughing at so many things in this post...the family picture attempts (TOO familiar with us!), Z saying he didn't "catch his name", Trent's eye condition... Great memories for y'all! The beach looks like it was just perfect! So glad you had a fun trip.

All of a sudden T looks super grown up (I'm sure you don't want to hear that), but boy, he's changed so much! Cute cute boys! Oh, and I laughed about T's wardrobe changes and hair gel concerns.

I think you should just photo shop several pictures so you can get ONE good family picture! LOL! Looks like a vacation. I can't believe how much Trent is looking like Zachary. They are both getting so big!

MKM! Loved looking at pics of your precious family! I can only imagine how much fun y'all have.
You're very much the photographer--What kind of camera do you use and how did you get so good?! Impressive!!
Hope all is well in Texas. Maybe I'll see you one of these years!
Miss you.....
