Navy Touching The Sand For The First Time!

Amelia Island, Florida 2015 - Day 3 & 4

Our third day, Saturday, was a bit of a snoozer.  We had plans of hanging out by the pool all day but it ended up thunderstorming about 90% of the day.  So we walked down to get breakfast around 10:30, walked over to the Ritz Kids area for a while, came back to the room and by that time daddy was done until he had to go back for dinner so we all took a nap.  We are definitely a family that isn't afraid to take naps.  I mean...isn't that part of being on vacation?!  :)
We got up and got the boys ready and the boys and I headed out for another dinner as just the 3 of us.  After dinner we walked down to the huge fire pit they had on the beach and roasted smore's that they had available.  We stayed out there for about 45 minutes, came back to the room and let Bossy watch a movie while I fed little man and watched a show myself.  To our surprise, daddy came back early (around 9) to spend the rest of the evening with us.  

Sunday, was "going home" day.  However, since our flight didn't take off until 7pm we had the whole day with daddy to do what we wanted.

This trip was quick but really great.  The boys were awesome and loved being away from home exploring.  Bossy knows that he's been to Florida a few times already so he already loved the idea of going back.  This was Navy's first but not last time to Florida!

Until next time Florida...



Amelia Island, Florida 2015 - Day 2

Our second day was spent mostly at the beach.  Jer had to go to a few lectures that morning (and even gave a lecture himself) until about noon and then came back and we headed out to the beach since he didn't have to be back for their dinner until 6:30p.  It was a nice beach day but it was sooo windy.  Windy or not Bossy had the time of his life.  I really think he's a total beach dude.  The water was freezing but he warmed up to it and frolicked out in it the whole time.  He would get out of the water and start shivering.  ha.  
Meanwhile we watched him and enjoyed time with Navy while he experienced his first time out on the beach and touching the sand.
Making his treasure map in the sand.  

Navy's very first time touching his sweet little toes to the sand.  He didn't seem to mind.  
We think he loved it.  :)  Those strap marks are indentions from his cute little sandals he was wearing.  Cutest little chubby feet I ever did see.
Praying?  :)
Yup, he likes it.  Gonna be another beach lover, we hope.  
Wrapped up and napping on daddy's shoulder.
Feeding time.
What a beach bum.  :)
Ending the night with the boys and I going out to dinner at a restaurant in the hotel and me taking a bubble bath.  :)  Although it didn't go as planned.  This sweet little lover buns decided to wake up right when I was getting in.  However, he was so kind.  He didn't bother me and he played with his toys the whole time.  
What a great "making memories" day!


Amelia Island, Florida 2015 - Day 1

We took our annual trip with daddy to his conference that he goes to every year.  Last year, we went to Boca Raton with just Bossy.  This year, we brought the new sweet addition with us.  We love traveling and taking our children.  It's all about creating memories and letting them experience new things.  I must admit it was pretty dang easy.  Bossy knows the drill after already flown more than several times in his 4.5 year life.  He's great in airplanes and little man nursed and slept most of the time.  Although, it didn't hurt that our flight was only 2 hours.  

Our hotel stay was amazing.  We stayed at the Ritz Carlton in a suite that was huge.  It was like having a one bedroom, two full bathrooms with two toilet rooms, two full closets and a living room apartment.  The only thing missing was a kitchen.  It was plenty big enough for us.  And the ocean view balcony wasn't bad, either.  :)  

The first day, we got up at 4am, hopped on our 2 hour flight and then got to the hotel room and took a 3 hour nap.  The boys and I got ready and went out to explore what the hotel had to offer while daddy went to cocktail hour with his conference people.
We found the kids area and the kiddie pool so we headed back to our room to get changed.  Bossy couldn't wait to go swimming in the kiddie pool.  So we finished off our evening watching him swim.  
I'm so thankful that we took our bassinet that goes to our stroller because Navy was able to sleep and play in it the whole time we were there.  Everywhere we went he would ride in it.  Even to restaurants that we ate at.  We pulled him up right next to the table as he sat in his bassinet.  If he ate, I'd rock him to sleep and lay him in it while we finished our meal.  It was amazing.  It was like having a portable bed and play pen with us at all times.  One day we even took it off of the stroller and carried it with us to the beach so that if he got tired he could sleep in it with the shade up to block some of the sun and wind.  I made sure to keep some blankets in it along with some of his favorite toys which kept him occupied the majority of the time.  Unfortunately, we'll be retiring it soon since he's way too long for it and he pretty much looked like he was wearing the thing.  Ha.  :)
