A Trip to the Beach

Last week we were able to spend a few days at the beach. My in-laws rented a condo in St. Augustine for the week and invited us to come stay too. On Friday (the 15th) Ray and Harriet (my in-laws) picked our kids up and took them on to the beach. Then on Saturday they met up with my husbands brother and his wife to pick up the other two grandkids. There is a big age difference with the four grandkids, our kids are 12 and 15 while the Aidan is 7 and Sean is 4. On Sunday (Father's Day) we joined them in St. Augustine along with Doug & Caryn (my brother-in-law and his wife). Went out to dinner to celebrate the Dads and then back to the condo. Doug and his family visited for a while and then headed back home. Ray & Harriet decided that they would go ahead and head on home too so that our little family could have some time together at the beach. Once everyone left we put on our bathing suits and headed down to the beach.

On Monday we took the kids to the Ripley's Museum and also walked around St. George Street. We went back to the condo to rest and then got ready to go out to dinner. We went to Saltwater Cowboys.
We got up Tuesday morning and went back down to the beach for a few hours then it was time for us to pack up and head back home. Ray and Harriet went back to stay for the rest of the week to have some down time. We really enjoyed our time there and are so thankful that we were asked to go and stay.

I'll end this post with a photo that I took while at the beach, made Kaelyn and I laugh as we were sitting on the beach while Chuck and Tyler were out in the water.


  1. Oh how I need a beach trip!! What's up with that dog??

    1. There was a couple walking that dog. When we saw it Kaelyn & I looked at each other and started laughing. It just struck us as funny.
