We didn't waste any time when we made it in to town. First stop, the beach! The water was perfect on the first day, very pleasant waves. Later in the week it was a little rougher!
First sand castle of the week.

We stayed at Sandpiper Cove and loved it. It wasn't the typical high rise condo that we usually stay in and we really enjoyed it for a change It was nice to pull right up to the door of our condo and not to have to wait for an elevator all week! It also didn't hurt that we had a pool just behind our back patio.
The kids were all ready for dinner at Stinky's Fish Camp in Santa Rosa Beach. Try to ignore the condensation on my lens. :)
Here's Anna Grace burying Lee's feet, which happened to be helpful at keeping the sunburn away!
She wrote "RIP Daddy's Feet" in the sand. :)

One night we went to ride go carts and bumper boats at The Track. Emma Taylor and Harrison were only tall enough to ride the Kiddie Track, so they went first.
It's a big multi-level track. So fun!
After that, the kids and I rode the bumper boats, which I forgot had sprayers on the front when I hopped in!
Harrison and I got stuck in a boat with no sprayer, so we couldn't defend ourselves. ha!
Sarah was ready to go!
So was Emma Taylor!
Anna Grace was all about the pose! :)
Here's the after picture. I told you we got drenched, but we really had fun!
We finished up the week with more beach and more pool time. Lee and I read at the beach and really had a nice time relaxing too.
We made it home Friday evening and though we are wading through laundry and sand, we are so happy to be home!
