No sewing... just swimming!

Happy First Day of Summer!

On Monday, my sister, her friend, and friend's two kids showed up for, what turned out to be, a very short visit. As soon as they got here (after driving all night), we decided to head out for Destin, FL for some beach time! The weather was gorgeous, and the waves were calm. After 4 or 5 other trips to the beach, this was the first time I was actually able to get Matt into the water to enjoy it. YAY!

(me and the sis- same parents - I swear!)

(salt water on the glasses- not so easy to see through!)

(finally brave enough to go under)

There are some baby gators chilling on the little docks and stuff in the water... this was at Fudpucker's for lunch. Matt got brave enough to touch one of the little ones, that had it's mouth taped shut, but they wouldn't allow me to take any personal pics of it. But... karma is a b!tch... right after making me put my camera up, the guy holding the gator got peed on by it.... Ohhh yes- too funny! Matt was super amused.

We wasted the next day at a local pool that serves double as a mini-waterpark! The first few times Matt walked up the path to the top of the waterslide, he promptly ran back down scared, but he finally got brave enough to go down a few times!

Sounds like you and Matt had a great time. Too bad you had to put the camera down and couldn't get a pic.

What beautiful weather :c)

The water looks amazingly calm. Bet that was fun. When we go to PC or Gulf Shores, the water is usually too rough to go in.

YES- that was definately the calmest we'd seen it! Was GREAT !
