|Kids at Dusty's|
It rained the entire way to the beach (poor Steve had to white knuckle the steering wheel), but that didn't affect our driving time. In fact, nor did Walker. We surprised the older kids with the "Frozen" DVD, and Walker slept on and off the whole way there. He never made a peep, and was a perfect angel (really)! After we unloaded our car, we met some friends at Red Bar for an awesome lunch and a little music from Dread Clampitt. Since the sun was out in full force after we left, we all hit the beach! We went out for Mexican that night, and made it an early night, though it was kind of a crazy night for the adults.
Monday morning Steve and the kids rode bikes to the donut truck, while Walker and I lingered back at our house. Since the day brought more cloudiness and cool weather, we met a group at Dusty's for a late lunch. Following a couple pitchers of beer and some yummy oysters, we went back to Lyndsey Mooney's parent's house to hang out for a bit. They have a great yard, so the kids played outside and the rest of us just hung out. That night, we baked some fresh fish with the Criggers.

|First family shot on the beach|
Sadly, our last day on the beach was cut short because we were attending the wedding of our friend, Christy Heath. We were all excited (it was the kids first wedding), but we hated coming off the beach to get ready. She got married in Watercolor, down the road, in a grassy park. It was a beautiful landscape, so we capitalized and got another family shot. Then we walked over to the reception. We all ate, and then the kids hooked up with other kids and played in the grassy field adjacent to the building, while the adults hung out inside. Christy hired a great band from Atlanta that danced and played a variety of music...so it was very entertaining. By 8:30, all of the kids were asking to go home. They were all tired (and the music was too loud for lil man), so we called it a night. It was a nice end to a nice getaway. Although, we can't wait to return in 8 short weeks!
