Beach Vacation 2010

Greg, Sarah, & Ivy
Seaside, Florida 2010

Our last little family of 3 vacation....it's kind of sad, but we are excited for Tula to join the family!

We kicked our vacation off with Seaside's annual 4th of July parade at 8:30 AM! Ivy loved all the decorated golf carts, cars, and even boats driving by. She loved it even more when they would throw her candy or beaded necklaces.

We spent A LOT of time at the beach and in the sand. Ivy loved the sand from the get go, but wanted nothing to do with the "whales" in the ocean. By the end of the week we realized she thought the waves were called whales.... I kept assuring her that there were no whales that close to the beach. Just a small miscommunication!

It was a great week to spend time with family and RELAX!

Ivy was finally brave enough to play in the ocean with her Daddy and Pops and Nana thought they might be brave enough to TRY to teach Ivy how to play baseball!

I love this picture of Ivy and her Daddy running down a HUGE sand dune. Ivy definitely is much more adventurous when Mommy is out of sight and she is in the safety of her Daddy!

Overall, it was a fabulous vacation! We can't complain about anything.... not even the car ride.... so life is good :) Maybe next year we can go back with Tula in tow! Our family was so in love with the house and the little town I am sure that will not be our last stop in Seaside!
