Life's a beach

Yesterday we went out to Sarasota to see our friend Bob and his girlfriend Vanessa. You never know what the drive out to the coast will be like, especially with spring breaks really kicking into high gear this week. But I have to say the drive went pretty well, Aaron even took a quick nap.

We hung out at Bob's place for a while and then had some lunch. Jill took full advantage of being between the two "rookies". We let the kids sit in booster seats, which I have to say they did really well in, but I think I'd only use them if we had to sit in a booth. Jill even made sure to "borrow" some of her Uncle Bob's french fries.

After lunch we went out to the beach. I didn't full on plan for a beach day, mainly because the Gulf is still pretty chilly and I had zero intention of actually going in the water. Hind sight being 20/20 I would have put them in suits with swim diapers. Oh well, live and learn.
The kids loved the water and wanted to go down to it every few minutes to let the waves crash against their feet and legs. Jill was also a huge fan of the sand, and boy did we end up with sand everywhere! Aaron was starting to get burned out by this point and every little thing caused a major meltdown. Thankfully, Uncle Bob happened to have a tennis ball in his car and that seemed to do the trick.

This trip definitely set the bar for the summer! I was hoping they would love the beach, and they did! Can't wait to spend a lot of time on the beach! Hopefully when we go again both kids will sleep on the way home :)

Thanks again Bob and Vanessa for having us!

Stopping by from Multiples and More to follow you! I just love the title of your blog! So true!

Looks like an awesome trip - I wish we lived closer to a beach. :(

We did enjoy some unseasonable warm weather today, though! Have a great weekend and Happy Easter!
