Beach trip!

We just got back from our beach trip and I am still exhausted!  This was a "first" for us because although we go to the beach every year we have always gone with family.  However, this year everyone had crazy schedules so we decided to put our big girl/boy pants on and go by ourselves!  We found an awesome condo in Sandestin and booked it before we could change our minds.  I am so glad we did because even though I missed our family a ton, we still had a great time.  We spent a lot of time at the pool because the beach was full of seaweed and both kids thought it was gross (me too!).  Trey told me we need to go back to "Golf Shores" next year becuase there was no seaweed there!

Before the big ride!

 I have to say the most memorable experience was our bike ride we took.  I really like riding bikes but I basically just stink at it.  It's hard and I am pretty wobbly.  But, the kids kept seeing bikes everywhere and begged us to do it so what do ya do?  We rented them on what had to be the hottest day ever and I was pretty nervous at first that I would fall with Addison in the back on her seat.  I got over that pretty quick and then just started praying I wouldn't die from a heat stroke.  After we started riding she kept continually hitting me and telling me to "go faster and keep up."  At one point, J.O. stopped to check on me because I was so far back and I started yelling..."keep going, keep going" because I knew I wouldn't be able to stop.  Then, a group of girls almost walked out in front of me and I started yelling, "I can't stop!" and they just looked at me like I was crazy.  The most embarassing thing though was when we had to stop to cross the street and I tried to get my speed back up to cross and almost fell.  I just gave up and walked the bike across with everyone watching me.  At one point, J.O. asked Trey if he wanted to ride with me and he said no because he wanted to win.  Even though it sounds crazy it was so much fun and now I want to buy a bike to ride around here.  I think I can improve my skills over time!!

It was a great trip and an awesome time for the 4 of us to have together!
