There is something so calming about the ocean to me. I can't get enough of it. The smell of salt water is just the most divine scent. And those ocean waves crashing on the shore...pure bliss!
All of the "firsts" with a baby, are just so exciting! I mean, I couldn't wait to dip Scarlett's sweet toes in the water and to see her reaction to the ocean. She loved it, until one one of the waves splashed on her. She didn't like that too much. This vacation was much needed. It was short, but sweet. We headed down to Orange Beach on Friday morning and stayed till Sunday. Joel had to take his Internal Medicine shelf exam on Friday morning, so we've had a rough couple of weeks with lots of Mommy and Scarlett time. We're so glad to have Joel back for a bit, and are glad he doesn't have to study again for a bit. This trip was exactly what we needed! We also celebrated my upcoming 25th birthday over the weekend with our family since I wouldn't see them. Everyone was so sweet, and even Scarlett got some goodies, too! I am so thankful for the time we had with our families, I miss them already!
Baby Scarlett stealing all of the attention! She had all her grandparents, uncles, and aunts wrapped around her tiny finger!
My parents brought a tent for Scarlett to stay under while we were at the beach. It was overcast mostly, but we made sure that we kept her skin covered.
Oh, how I wish we were back. This trip was too short! Hoping we can do something like this again soon! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! And who's excited for the 3 day weekend coming up? I AM!!!
