Prepare for extreme picture overload. I can't help it! This day was probably my favorite day from our entire vacation. It was so.much.fun!
It all started with breakfast:
After breakfast we packed up and headed for St. Augustine. We dropped Louie off at my grandma's house so he would be inside and not outside in a kennel all day. This worked out perfectly! Soon, we were on the road! We stopped at the outlet mall for a quick little shopping trip, and I scored some great deals at Gymboree. I was so pleased!!!! In fact, I may have been overly excited about these matching jammies for Lilly and Liam:
You can't really blame me though, they are perfect!
Our next stop was the beach!!! Mom took us to the boardwalk at St. Augustine Beach because there is a parking lot, with showers and a splash pad for Lilly. Perfect! We had a picnic lunch before getting in the water. Oh boy. I wasn't sure how Lilly would feel about the ocean, but boy did she love it! I will let these pictures do the talking! I can still hear her laughing, and pointing at all the seagulls calling them "dog". Precious memories of our little girls first time setting foot in the big, blue ocean. Love it!
SO MUCH FUN!
After an afternoon at the beach we headed back to Mom's for a little swimming in the pool. I don't know what it is, but there is nothing as refreshing as jumping in a cool pool after a day at the beach. I think it has something to do with getting the extra sand and salt water off of you...I love it! We decided to head out for dinner a little later too-we went to my favorite Japanese Steakhouse (we don't have many of them around us, and they are all so expensive!). We had a wonderful time! Lilly loved the soup and the friend rice and yum yum sauce. I was shocked at how much food she ate! We all also enjoyed the show, so fun!
We snapped some pictures before we left:
It was such a wonderful day with so many memories!!! And, because Lilly liked the ocean SO much-we planned another beach day. Post coming soon!
