We're here!

We arrived last night after 2 days of traveling- with one LONG stop in Birmingham overnight. We had intended to leave B'ham by noon, but because of a few things we were involved in, we didn't hit the road till after 2:00 and hit Destin around 6:30. Sarah was completely taken with the beach and when she first saw it - she let out a big "WOW!" It was cute. She is braver than Beth was at this age and has already been wave jumping with Beth. The are both asleep now and both NEEDED it badly. It took about 1/2 hour to get Sarah down in the big bed. After getting caught once out of it, and getting in trouble - she didn't get out again and was asleep in minutes. I'm hoping the novelty of the big bed wears off by mid week!

Its hot here today and the waves are huge. There was a bad riptide yesterday and the rescue teams have been pulling people out of the water all over the place. I haven't let the girls go more than knee deep and probably won't unless it really calms down. I'm not sure why its so kicked up, but is surfing waves out there! We plan to stay in tonight and grill burgers. I expect an afternoon storm to kick up soon, at least it looks like its going to happen. The girls were out this morning by 7:00 a.m. and I brought Sarah Katherine in around 10:30 and Beth in around 11. They are wiped out. I expect they will sleep till 2:30-3:00 and it will be 3:30-4:00 before we are back outside. I try to avoid having them out there between 11-3. Those are the worst sun hours, in my opinion.

Here are a few pictures from today:

So far, so good!

Katie, do you always stop in B'ham? That's where I live! I'd love to meet y'all sometime. I know B'ham is just a stop on the way to Destin, but have you tried McWane Science Center? Emily LOVES it there. It's worth the detour.
