Beach Babies

We are in Destin this week for a conference Riley has to attend.  The conference started today and last until Friday but we headed down on Saturday so he could have some time to play on the beach with the girls. The girls are napping, so I thought I would post about our first day.
 Anna Riley did a wonderful job traveling on the trip down...Ava Kate on the other hand did ok but she does not like to sleep in the car.   We got down in time to grab some groceries and Ava Kate was beyond ready for bed since she didn't take a nap so we called it a night.
  We went to breakfast the next morning at Another Broken Egg in Baytowne.  Riley took AR to the beach while Ava Kate took a little nap and then we headed down.  Both girls really liked it.  We took Ava Kate a small pool and she played with her toys in that.  Anna Riley liked playing by the water with her Daddy.   We stayed down for a while and then it was back to the condo for naps before dinner!  We went to eat at Louis Louis.  The same people own it as the Red Bar...it was very good!!  After dinner, we played on the playground for a while before getting Ava Kate in the bed.

It has been interesting to see how much Anna Riley changes each summer.  She is very particular this year about things.  She didn't want to wear her two-pieces..she wore one the second day and wanted it off and now only wants one-pieces (and we have some really cute 2pieces too!)  She also knows when she is using the bathroom with the swim diaper on and hates it!  She ask for a wipe so she could wipe herself off!  I am hoping this is just an indication that we are getting closer to potty training.  She hates being dirty, but loves the beach this year and hasn't really cared for the pool.  (more about that on the next post)

Ready for the beach!
