Port A

This summer we headed down to Port A with Marcus’ parents.  Marcus grandparents bought a condo there when he was young and he grew up vacationing there.  We had a blast relaxing by the beach, swimming, and cruising around town in a golf cart!  Besides a few minor mishaps (getting stuck in the sand with the golf cart, and Mason puking all night the second night) We had a GREAT TIME surfing the waves!!!


And were off…ready to hit the beach

Mason was so excited about the waves at the beach…he was ready to jump and surf!  Madelyn…she is still not too fond of the sand, but we did take her in the water and she did enjoy the waves splashing her!

After a quick dip in the ocean…we were hungry…so what better place to have a quick bite right of the beach!  HOWEVER….we drove right into thick sand and got stuck!  Finally, after several pushes and a piece of cardboard and about 30minutes we were out :)

The next morning we went of a dolphin watching tour.  We headed down to the pier and off we went!  It was great weather…cloudy and not too hot!  We saw several dolphins and a light house.  After a few minutes into the tour…Madelyn “I have to go potty” SERIOUSLY…I just took you right before we got on the boat!!  Thanks goodness the boat was equipped with a port-a-potty! We got it all set and Madelyn relieved herself!  After seeing several dolphins and enjoying a nice boat ride we headed back to the condo!

After several chocolate donuts, chocolate milk, chocolate cake and tons of other junk food…Mason woke up sick ALL NIGHT!  The next day he was puny, but we still managed to have a blast by the pool and at the beach :)

September 8th

Seriously….5 yrs old!!! My boy is 5!!!  This year we weren’t going to have a party for him (GASP), but at last minute I threw a little shin dig together for him and a few of his friends.  He wanted BATMAN…so Batman it was :)  He enjoyed his “party” at Clay’s Restaurant!!!  I didn’t have to lift a finger and that was NICE :)  I believe the kids had a great time too!  They ran around, fed the animals, had a pinata, ate, had cake….fun times!
