Back from the Beach

We're back from the beach :( I was so depressed the day we drove home, I could have definitely handled a couple more days there! Anyways, I have lots of pictures to share, so here we go:

First off let me start by saying, that if you are going to Panama City Beach, do not take Hwy. 231 the whole way there. We never go that way, when we get to Troy we always turn right and go through Enterprise, but for some crazy reason this year my dad and uncle decide to take Hwy. 231 and go through Dothan. Big Mistake!!! It probably took us an extra hour or more to get there than it usually does. And there were a million red lights! So don't let the signs fool you about taking 4-laned 231 all the way to the beach, and just stick with the 2-lane , Hwy. 167, I think?

So we left out about 8 am, stopped in Trussville for breakfast at Cracker Barrel, and stop 2 more times for gas and a bathroom break, and got to PCB about 4 pm. Our first night we made another mistake, trying to go to dinner at 7 pm at Montego Bay. It was not a good experience and we had tired babies to deal with too!

The next day was our first full day there. We took Sara to the beach for the first time and she didn't seem to be a big fan, so that was her last trip to the beach, except to make pictures on the last night. She did love the pool, though!

Overall it was a great vacation, surprisingly relaxing for having an 8 month old along with us. I actaully got to read and finish a whole book while we were there, something I haven't done since Sara was born. And I got a nice tan and didn't burn, which is always a plus!!
