We were able to take a trip to the beach this summer. I am so thankful! I love the beach and had not been able to go in four years. My dream is to live at or close to the beach. John Thomas absolutely loved it too!When we would walk onto the beach John Thomas would say "Hi Beach" "Hi Sand" "Hi Water" "Hi Ocean" so cute. We had a great time and some of my family and best friend was able to join us which made it even better.

After a couple of flight delays we got in later than planned and decided to go have dinner at Baytown Wharf, where we were staying. Walking up we heard live music and I was excited to see it was one of my friends from college playing. I loved listening to Chad play in college and loved watching my son dance to him now. I also got to catch up with Chad during his break, perfect start to the vacation. 

First time seeing the beach

Playing on the beach

Little Tommy brought a friend with him to the beach. Ethan is over 6 feet tall so we though it would be funny to bury Ethan and JT beside each other

Family Pictures

I told the boys to give me a funny picture, appartently JT thought I said scary

Granna and JT

My husband travels most of July so my Mom came to visit/help me the last week of July. If you live close to family do not take it for granted!!! It makes life so much easier when you have a little help. John Thomas loved having his Granna her to play with him and of course she came with lots of presents for him :)

The first day we picked my mom up from the airport we took John Thomas to the Cincinnati Aquarium. He loved looking at all the fish.

We had a great week, good meals, farmers market, lots of play time outside, JT went swimming with Granna and watched Finding Nemo for the first time. Mommy had some free time to relax, shop and go out with friends. Perfect week for everyone!! 

Fun with Granna

JT was excited about going to the airport but so sad when he realized Granna was leaving
