We started this morning off with a stroll down the beach. It never even occurred to me to bring our stroller out on the beach until I saw another family do it! It worked out great because it was hard to take a walk with Sid on foot. I collected a few seashells and we got to watch the sun come up over the beach. He loved being up close to all the birds on the beach.
|Sean kept splashing bubbles to tickle Sid. He loved it!|
We ventured back on to the beach where he played with his bucket and had a quick snack.
I was amazed at how much he was content just sitting on my lap on the beach. I guess with all the people and other things to look at he was totally happy just sitting still. We built a tiny sandcastle with a moat. He had fun getting the water from the ocean to fill it with. Eventually our castle turned into some silly face. Then later, once we were inside, I looked out to see that some man had stuck his beach umbrella right in the middle of our creation!!! Ha! O'well :)

We ate lunch in the condo and then we ran to the Island Trader souvenir shop so I could get us a Christmas ornament for our tree to help us remember our first family vacation :) Then it was nap time! While Sid napped, Sean and I got busy packing our stuff and getting showered and ready for our family photo session we had that evening during sunset.
I found a photographer 2 weeks before our trip on Instagram. It took me that entire time to figure out our outfits and even on this day, one hour before photos I was going over it in my head - wondering if I brought anything else that would be better. Omg! I drive myself cray!!! The pictures turned out better than I could've ever imagined! Here is a quick preview...

After our pictures we got Sid ready for bed and then picked our last meal on the island, from Lobstah's. I finally got my gulf shrimp that I love! They were massive and I was in seafood heaven!
We called it a night after one last Pina Colada. We had to be out of our condo by 10 the next morning.
