First Beach Trip

Well, Parker is officially "initiated" into this family. He's been introduced to the beach, and he loves it! Jay and I, (but especially me) are most definitely beach people, and so Parker must grow up loving the beach! ;) It's so nice because Jay's parents have a condo right on the beach and are very sweet to let us go whenever we want, so we'll definitely be taking them up on that in the future!

This wasn't the most ideal trip, but it was still so nice to get away! It rained some of the time, and Parker (for whatever reason) just did NOT sleep well down there, so in a way we came back feeling a little more exhausted than when we left, but it was still SO worth it! Everyone had told me that going to the beach with a baby is definitely not the same, so I was prepared for that part of it.

My favorite thing was that each night after Parker was in bed, Jay and I would sit out on the deck and listen to the ocean and just talk. It was really nice to get some "us" time because I'm definitely a huge quality-time person, and I crave that time together! Here's some pictures of our time there:

He loved his float! He was just kicking his legs like crazy!

He had so much fun in the water!
