Hampton's First Beach Trip
Well, even though we live at the beach, we have never taken Hampton TO the beach. So here we are on vacation in Marco Island, FL. It's off the west coast of Florida on the Gulf side. Until today, it has been cloudy and rainy! You'll notice Hampton playing on his swim float inside in a picture below. We went to the beach this morning anyway, in spite of the fog and clouds. I put Hampton's feet in the surf, but the waves (tiny waves) scared him. So he sat on the beach with Daddy while I picked up some beautiful shells. I want to make a shadow box frame with them and put his picture inside.
We're enjoying our time together as a family! We've shared some great meals and enjoyed just hanging out and relaxing together. We are sitting outside a Starbuck's now, borrowing their Internet service...and enjoying a frappucino also, of course!
We will go back home tomorrow. I am posting some pictures that we've taken. It's beautiful here. The gulf has been as smooth as glass, and we watched dolphins play in the surf this morning. Peaceful. Serene. Good to get away.
