Labor Day Weekend at Pensacola Beach, Part 1

Once again this summer did not lend itself to much vacationing.  We had high hopes of squeezing in several short beach-within-reach trips, but at the end of the summer the only beach we had seen was a dirty one in Biloxi.  Instead we spent our summer recuperating from ear tubes and Lasik surgery.  Since Damon was finally discharged to experience water sports again, we decided to take a mini-vacay to Pensacola for Labor Day weekend.  It had to be a short trip because Stella is now in real school, and she only had one day off.  We chose Pensacola again because we had such a great time there last year, the drive is short, and the hotel that we stayed in last time is perfect for our family at this stage of life.  We even talked Mawmaw and Pawpaw into coming with us...
Watts had a blast splashing all around the kids' pool.  He wore himself out and had to go nap after this...





Stella discovered the art of sunbathing on this trip.  She doesn't really realize that is what she is doing, but she wanted to lounge on Watts's pool float and just drift around.  I have a bad feeling that all that careful sunblocking I've been doing will all be for nothing once she becomes a teenager and wants a tan...




Cille is a great swimmer, but a little too confident for our taste, so we made her wear her puddle jumper most of the time...



Damon under siege...
If you enlarge this picture Stella's hair looks pretty cool...



Stella loves the waterfall in this pool...


Watts was fading fast...

There are lots more Florida pictures to share...five posts worth, in fact...brace yourself or skip the next few posts if you don't enjoy seeing other people's vacation photos.  I have heard some people don't enjoy that, believe it or not...
