Last Month's Beach Holiday

So on account of the Walbergs impending desertion relocation, Nicole and I impulsively decided to take a beach holiday in Destin Florida last month, bringing along our combined three kids for the ride. The 12 hours each way ride that is.   Our critical trip miscalculation though lay not in the length of the journey, but in the underparticipation of adults. Our ratio was 2:3 - this was the first time in my life that I've ever had to go to the proverbial zone defence. We did have a secret weapon though- Shane's cousin Amber babysat for us a couple of times, to give Nicole and I a holiday from our holiday.  Once we went out for dinner and drinks, and the other time we went to the beach.  That was pretty civilized.   Somehow looking after 3 kids looked easy when Amber did it. 

We spent a lot of time in the pools. 

Declan and Abbey had a great time together as usual. 

We caught them holding hands while watching a video.  Cute!

Abbey's favourite movie is "Enchanted" which features a big waltz scene. She was constantly trying to get Declan to ballroom dance with her, to no avail. That guy is all freestyle, all the time.

The kids were so good we even took them out to actual restaurant.  At this one, we had a table overlooking a playground on the beach. 

Out for ice cream.

Tormenting the local fauna.

I love this picture-  Nicole is so over this carousel.
