Last day in Bama...and the beach
It had been a relaxing trip. Here is the view from our hotel in Panama City. Did I mention that we have been spoiled rotten? Real life is going to be hard to swallow but thankfully we are going to be with Jason and we really miss him.
Here's the kids all playing together.
Gulf of Mexico vs. Pacific Ocean
Gulf is warmer, clearer, white sands. There were little fish swimming right up to the shore. It was the most Paisley has been in the ocean since babies aren't real fond of ice cold water.
Pacific Ocean has better waves, and its our home. Plus its closer to us.
Jason said, "Baylie's had her own flock"
Darby was a great swimmer in the ocean, and got on the boogie board too.
Eating pizza at nite on the hotel room patio.
Looks like baby jail
The kids loved having the nets to try and catch things, but the fish were too sneaky.
Feeding the macaw at the awesome pet store (Wet Pets). Leave it to Nana to suggest feeding something without asking permission.
Grandpa had to work this week but sometimes he could sneak back and read to the kids before bed, and then usually went back to work til very late. He needs a rest!
In Dad's office, aka the shrine to his grandkids.
Luke is still talking about being able to lift Uncle Brandon.
I thought this was a cute brotherly picture.
Fancy Sunday outfits.
Congratulations if you made it this far through all these pictures. Thanks for indulging me. You are either my sister, my brother, or my husband, or you are just a McCoy fan ;)
I figured out is was two years since I'd been to Alabama. Can't help but wonder if it will be another two years before I get back. Feels the same that we can make it to Washington. I wish that we all lived in the same neighborhood as our family, even single one of them, but since that is not the case, we will appreciate our visits when we can get them. And appreciate our friends who are like family in CA (and UT!). But wherever we go, as long as I have us six little McCoys together, we are okay. Just maybe a sad this next week. Hugs and kisses to all are siblings and parents who we wished we could see a little more often.
