Sand between tiny toes...

I have been MIA this past week because we took a last minute trip to Orange Beach. Sometimes you've got to just leave your day-to-day life hanging, and go have some fun. And what fun it was...there is nothing like the laugh of an almost-two-year-old as the waves splash into him.  It was a very special time to experience what I envisioned while I was in the most difficult part of Damon's labor: having my two boys with me on the beach (minus the bikini. I opted for a tankini considering Damon was born 9 weeks ago...)

Here is a glimpse into our trip:

Naps on the beach

Smiles

 Wrapped up in a towel after a swim in the ocean

 Windblown hair

Burying Daddy

 On the beach where David proposed, today, three years ago

 Family time

 Dmitri loved the boat

Happy

More Smiles

 Naps

And more naps

Aside from the long car ride with a crying baby....it was perfect.

Could you guys be any cuter!? The one of the baby napping on the beach is too much. LOVE your swim bottom too! Where did you get it? I'm on the hunt for a "cover my butt/hips, but not too much like a mommy swimsuit" That one does the trick!
