Can I just tell you, that our little getaway this weekend...perfect! It could have been a little longer,
but despite not being long enough, it was such a great weekend.
We had planned to leave early Saturday morning so we could beat traffic. Early as in: 4 am. When Ty got home from work Friday afternoon, he asked me if I would be up for leaving that night instead and getting a hotel half way there. It made sense. We wouldn't have to get up as early and we could drive while the baby slept. I told him to see if he could find a hotel and I'd get the baby ready. We found a hotel about an hour away from the beach. Ty confirmed the reservations and we did a quick pack up of the suv. Scarlett didn't sleep as expected. Instead, she was glued to movies on the dvd player. I had to turn it off before she would fall asleep.
At 11:30 pm, we checked into our first hotel. It was a nice little spontaneous decision to leave Friday night. At 12:30 am, Ty and I laid in bed laughing and being silly. I don't know why, but when I'm overtired, I laugh hysterically about nothing and come up with the silliest things. After Ty said, "Oh brother, you need to go to sleep, you are over-tired." we cuddled up and fell asleep.
The next morning, we ate breakfast and were beach bound. We got there nice and early and spent some great quiet time at the beach, before everyone got there. Peaceful & Relaxing.
That is how I would describe that entire day. I brought the Rebel to capture a few memories...
For dinner, we went with my family to a delicious restaurant in town. We ate fried Zucchini, Hollywood Wraps, and drank margaritas. Well...I did. Poor Ty has been on the Keto diet to, get in shape, and he can't eat many carbs. But he still enjoyed his steak & his much-deserved weekend beer. We went back to their camp to hang out for awhile. We were going to take a cruise in my Mother's boat for a little ocean sight seeing. Unfortunately, it broke down so that never happened. Scarlett didn't nap all day. There was too much excitement. Too many new discoveries. Did I mention that she didn't want to step in the sand the first time on the beach? She held her feet up and then cried when I sat her in it. That's not like my fearless baby! But we gave her 10 minutes and she was playing with her sand toys, squishing the sand between her tiny fingers and of course, licking it. Ty even built her a sand castle. By 7:00, we decided we would head out to check into our 2nd hotel, The Wentworth By The Sea Hotel & Spa.
