We spent last week between two different beaches. The first half of the week we joined my parents in Tybee. They rented the same wonderful condo the rented two years ago. We jumped at the invitation to join them for a few days. Judd went down with us on Saturday morning and stayed through Sunday. Early Monday morning I woke up to take him to the airport so he could fly back to work.


We had a wonderful time spending the mornings and afternoons on the beach with some naps in between back at the condo. The weather was overcast and it rained on us at a few points, but overall the weather was really nice. We built numerous sand castles and pools. Judd helped Charlotte learn to boogie board. We walked on the beach, played in the tidal pools, caught hermit crabs, and dug up lots of clams. We ate ice cream every night. We swam in the pool. Mom, Charlotte, and I were able to sneak away for a couple hours and shop in Savannah. Everything a trip to the beach should be!

I packed up the kids on Wednesday afternoon and headed back to Atlanta. They both slept the first two hours of the trip! Exhausted. We stopped for a quick snack in Macon and made it home in the early evening.

Thursday afternoon we packed up again and hopped on a plane to the Panama City Airport. We met Judd's parents in Seacrest Beach for a weekend on the Gulf. Judd's co-worker got married on Saturday in Rosemary Beach, so we made decided to make a weekend of it.

We enjoyed the beautiful pool in the complex. It was a huge pool made up of about 4 or 5 little pools. It was a short walk to the beach. The complex had a free golf cart service that would take you to the beach and back to your condo's door. It was a fabulous place to spend the weekend.

Again, there was lots of pool time, beach time, and ice cream.

The kids were so good throughout the week. They woke up a lot earlier than usual, and got a lot less sleep, but they did great. It might help that they were spoiled by grandparents all week too! We felt lucky to see both sets of our parents this week and get to share the beach with them. I can't think of a better way to wrap up the summer.

Now we have a week to get ready to start school!
