Our 1st Family Vacation

We just got back from our 1st family vacation to St. George Island, Fl. It was a blast! Although, I must say that we packed the kitchen sink. We borrowed an external baggage carrier b/c we couldn't fit everything in the car! We looked like the Beverly Hillbillies on their way to the beach. Grammy, Chris' mom, went with us and it was so nice to have a 3rd person to help watch Ella. Chris and I even got a date night and some alone time on the beach! Ella loved playing in the water and eating the sand. She definitely didn't mind getting dirty. She loved the seagulls too. We were thankful she was sooo good. She even took a couple naps on the beach in her little tent! She couldn't have been any better. 
Chris has always bragged about St. George (no other beach compares), so I finally got to see it. Boy, was I in for a treat! It is the best kept secret (I probably shouldn't be telling you about it;)  Absolutely beautiful! It has white sands, few people, a large national seashore, no hotels, and no commercialism. I can't wait to go back!!

She learned to play peekaboo in the mirrors
