Life's a Beach!

This past weekend we took Brayden to the beach for the FIRST time!!!
I got him a puppy pillow for the ride hoping he would nap with it...
he napped, but not with the puppy!!
We stopped at Zaxby's for dinner on the way there. Brayden managed to rub french fry grease all in his hair. But it was a cute hair-do....
This is where we stayed!
And we even had our own golf cart.
Riding in it was Brayden's favorite thing to do at the beach!
Before bed daddy watched the World Cup...
And Brayden had dinner!
Bright and early the next morning, we headed to the beach! Brayden liked the sand for about .5 seconds.
And then we got to the water....and it went downhill from there!
He started grabbing for daddy...HARD!
He just wasn't too sure about the waves.

Daddy tried to reassure him, but he wanted up!
So we thought maybe we would try just walking in the wet sand for a bit and let him get used to it.
But he didn't like that either!

So we went back to the golf cart and he immediately calmed down! The beach was just too much for him this year!
So daddy let Brayden help drive....do you know where he took us???

To the pool!!!!!!
So we played there for a loooooooooong time.

After pool time we went back and cleaned up. Brayden played "peek-a-boo" while mommy made lunch.

Then Brayden went down for a nap. When he got up we headed to Broadway at the Beach. We had an early dinner on the water and did some shopping.

Then of course we had to ride the golf cart some more!

We stopped to feed the geese.
and the swans...
and the mommy and baby ducks came too.
We left the next day during Brayden's nap time. He was pooped from all his fun!
When we got home, he helped me unpack. What a sweet boy!

Until next year...

He is adorable! At least you had a pool where you were staying so he could have some water fun minus that big, scary beach! :)

Looks like a lot of fun! We are getting excited about our beach trip too. We went last summer but Em was only 3 weeks old so this will be interesting. :) Looks like y'all are having a fun summer!
