Last one!

Friday, Riley only had a half day conference and he got out a little early so he got to spend lots of time with us.  We went to the beach and then after naps we went to the pool. Ava Kate discovered the sand the day before so she wouldn't leave it alone.  She ate quite a bit of sand that day! :)  Anna Riley floated in the ocean with Riley for the longest time!  She really loved the beach and the ocean this year.  She would say "bye, I go to the beach!"  Ava Kate got in the pool for a while this time and really liked it but I don't have any pictures because we each had a kid! She really loves the water!
 We grilled out at the condo that night so that we could stay longer and get everything packed up to go home the next day.

Eating a snack once again! :)
Finally got her to wear one of her
two pieces...her Bama swimsuit! :)
She filled it with sand and was trying to
pick it up
Such a strong little girl!! :)
I was a little impressed that she could
carry the bucket full of sand!

She will swing on anything she can!

Saturday morning, we went to eat breakfast at Another Broken Egg one more time before heading home.  (I can't wait until the one in Tuscaloosa opens up!!)
Ava Kate found some creamer to be a good
alterantive to a paci!

We had a wonderful trip!  It is not always easy with two little ones but the memories we make and seeing how they enjoy it really make it worth it!  I enjoy every trip we take the girls on and I know it will only get more fun each year!

I promise I am almost done with Beach pictures.  I post them for me to look back on one day! :)
Wednsday was Riley's first day in his conference.  So, the girls and I headed down to the beach by ourselves.  The beach with little ones is hard especially when you are doing it alone but it really wasn't too bad!  Riley ended up getting out of his session before lunch early so he got to come by and play for a little while before going back!  That night he had to eat with some others from the conference so the girls and I picked up some Gumbo and a fish sandwhich from a place across the street. 

I didn't realy take any pictures on Wednesday since I had them by myself.

Riley had a long day in meetings on Thursday and we knew he wouldn't be coming back until later that afternoon. I took the girls to the pool that day. Anna Riley got in the kiddie pool and played with some other kids and actually liked it a lot better this time. We played for a while and then we walked down to the other pool and had lunch at the tiki bar. Their food was actually really good!

Naptime! :)

Thursday night, we went to Baytowne Wharf to eat and let AR play.  I am usually not a big fan of the food in the wharf but we actually had a great meal.  We ate outside at  Marlin Grill and it was very good!  Anna Riley loved playing on the playground this year and just like always, she loved the carousel.  We also got some ice cream or actually it was gelato before heading home.  Ava Kate got her first taste of ice cream and loved it!
