We made a quick dash to FWB to see my family. We all got out to the car and saw this:
Apparently Gunter was going with us!
We got to see everyone this time around but my camera batteries died so I only have a few photos to share.
After promising to go the last several times, we finally managed to make it to the beach!
The bad thing about growing up at the beach is that you tend to take it for granted. Matt and Kaela rarely get to go so we made it a priority this time.
My brother Art showed them how to body surf....which they did for over 2 hours straight. It was just rough enough to make it fun.
Matt was still in the surf for this photo:
Unfortunately, the seaweed was already here so we needed lots and lots of rinsing! Sheri had a tough time of it.....naughty seaweed!
here we are trying to take a family photo.....hopeless!
Matt relaxing, he is soooooo wishing we lived here, and days like this make me miss Fort Walton SO much.
Even Gunter went to the beach with us....he forgot his bathing suit though so decided to just stay on the boardwalk....
I made this little pajama trout to do a toy drop while there.
We dropped it at the Officer's Club Beach House in Destin. It was super windy....I hope someone found it before it blew away.
That evening, we went out to eat and then visited with my sister's husband Bill.
He is in the hospital right now so we would really appreciate some good thoughts and prayers sent his way!
Late that night I noticed Gunter and Sheri giggling...I have no idea why they had that big barrel of cheese puffs with them......
We stayed through Sunday and the on the way home, we ate lunch in Mobile.
We showed the kids the little church where Dean and I were married.
It is about 137 years old and so pretty....the inside is very small but just lovely, with stained glass windows and hardwood floors and benches.
Sometimes quick trips are the best...I can't wait for our next one!
