Beach Trip (Part 1)

So over Memorial Day weekend, we took a trip down to Destin– Nadia’s first time at the beach! She had a lot of fun while we were down there. One thing we invested in before we left was a waterproof, sand-proof digital camera so that we could take lots of pictures without worrying about ruining a phone or camera.

There are sooooo many pictures to share, so I’m going to break up the posts to make it a little easier. We’ll actually start with day 2 of our vacation. (Day 1 was mostly driving and stopping at various McDonald’s for potty breaks.) So without further ado, vacation day 2!

Nadia’s first look at the ocean…. she’s not sure what she thinks about this yet….

After a couple hours at the beach, we went back inside the condo for cooling off, lunch, and naps. Next stop? Ice cream!

Nadia’s ice cream had blueberry sauce mixed in. Mmmmm!

She might have made a little bit of a mess!

After our yummy snack (and an outfit change for Nadia) we decided to take Nadia to one of our favorite (little-known) places in Destin… Norriego Point! It’s on the Destin Harbor, so the water is calm, and there’s tons of wildlife around.

Isn’t it beautiful?

We brought along the net and caught a few crabs for Nadia to look at!

I’m gonna catch something!

She really wanted to be friends with the birds…. much to her dismay, they did not want to be friends with her.

She liked wading in the nice, calm water….

Dada wrote her name in the sand!
