Navarre Beach Vacation - first dose

We were lucky enough to be invited to join another (wonderful) family on vacation this year...otherwise Bryce had plans for us to trek through the U.S. in search of the best bbq.

So a big THANKS to Luke & Paige who saved us from that!!

and thought we might like to join them in Florida :)

The drive wasn't bad - we broke it into 2 days and stayed in Mississippi one night, where we had a complaint against us within 30 minutes of checking into the hotel!!!

Which really irritated Bryce (me, too) so he called the front desk and told them they can tell whomever just complained that they might just want to change rooms. Then proceeded to go out into the hallway and broadcast that "it's gonna go on all night" LOL.

C'mon, I know there were other families with small children (because I could hear them crying, too) so maybe the mystery complainer should go stay somewhere other than Holiday Inn Express in June??

Just saying...

We got to Navarre Beach Saturday afternoon and were so pleased!

It's beautiful - white sand, blue water, perfect.

I was worried about having enough room for everyone...not a problem.

The crazy, excited kiddos...

The view from the master bedroom balcony.

Not the greatest pic of Ben, but look at that water!

Luke floating with his kiddos.

It was Bowen's first time at the beach...

So daddy had to dip him in the ocean...he didn't care for it too much.

Monday we ventured to the Gulfarium.

Then lunch at Fudpuckers where the kids held an alligator :0

More pics to come...
