I came home Sunday and the coming up week Elle was going to be out for Spring Break so Kenny and I decided at the last minute to take a trip down to the beach! The weather has been so cold and gloomy we desperately needed some sunshine. Although the forecast wasn't looking so hot for the beach either!
We decided to leave Monday afternoon and stop halfway which gave me a small amount of time to pack but I managed to get it all done! While we were loading the car my friend Kelly drove by with some of the girls in the neighborhood and Elle hopped on and went cruising!

About an hour into the trip I decided we should got to Cracker Barrel for dinner. We stopped at one in Mobile and we were so disappointed. Food was terrible, service was terrible. It was all terrible. So sad! Because it is the ultimate road trip stop.

The next morning we rode over to Seaside in hopes we could check into our cottage early because the sun was actually shining that day and we wanted to get to the beach pronto!
Our little cottage. It was on Savannah street maybe three streets over from Seaside square and we loved being so close. We normally rent a larger house in Seagrove about a mile down the road.
We immediately suited up and headed down to the beach. This was Walker's first time and of course Elle is an old pro now. Walker was lulled to sleep fairly easily by the ocean waves. He is a white noise addict. He has a noise machine and so does Elle.
Relaxing to the sounds of the ocean.

Oh my gosh this picture! One of my favorites. His sweet little smirk and cheeks and chubby legs. Eeeeek!The next morning we were there. It was sort of cloudy so we hit up our favorite coffee shop and then went over to Modica for breakfast and their famous fresh squeezed mimosas! The we sat and just relaxed and let Elle play in the amphitheatre and took a short walk. One of her favorite things to do and it was such a wonderful and relaxing morning.
Waiting on Daddy to bring out the breakfast.
Fun in the amphitheater.
Walker is not amused. My new hashtag on Instagram for these types of pictures because he makes the funniest unamused faces.
Snoozing on our walk.
