We've made it safely to the beach. After some crazy directions I got off the internet (you would think I know how to get here after only coming my entire life), we pulled into the beach house at about 11pm on Saturday night. Sunday we got up, headed out for breakfast, and then hit up the local wal-mart to stock up on snacks and breakfast items. We then headed out to the beach for the rest of the afternoon and went out to dinner that evening. Monday pretty much followed the same routine.
David has always had a hard time relaxing on vacation. When we first started dating, going on vacation with my family would seriously drive him crazy. My family takes relaxing to a whole new level when we go on vacation. We seriously can go days without doing anything and we will enjoy every minute of it. When I would go on vacation with David's family, I always felt like I needed a vacation after the vacation. Over the years, David has slowly come to the Mitchell/Peters way of vacationing and I can now keep up with his family on vacation. I even made his mom proud when we went to Nashville in March and I planned for us to go to three museums in one day. Don't worry though, we are on day three of our beach vacation and he is up to two naps a day now. I think he is in full relaxation mode now.
Unfortunately, on Monday we all took a dip in the ocean and (like idiots) didn't think to reapply sunscreen when we got out. Of course we all got burned in some form or other. We decided today to take a day off from the beach to recover and went shopping instead. We scored a bunch of stuff for Olivia for next spring & summer and didn't pay over $5 for anything. I cannot wait to bring her to the beach next summer. There are a bunch of little babies around and I've been drooling over all of them.
Please forgive me Liz, I haven't taken a single picture since we've gotten here. I am going to try to do better the next few days. I'm always forgetting to take pictures, but I'm sure that will change when Olivia gets here. The poor kid is going to probably be begging for me to get the camera out of her face.
So, that is what we've been up to so far on our beach trip. We're planning on heading back to the beach tomorrow and then heading out for an early dinner and then later tomorrow night the Pope's are coming up to join us for a couple of days before we head home.
More beach updates in a few days.
