Orange Beach, Part 1

We decided to take advantage of the long Memorial Day weekend and go on a quick trip to the beach.  We booked a place super last minute and headed out Thursday night.  Poor Watts was a little under the weather with an ear infection, so the trip was short but felt very long due to his level of discomfort.  It was a huge change for all of us since Watts is usually so easy going.  Hearing him cry all the way to Orange Beach was not Mawmaw's idea of a good time.  By the time the sun came up Friday morning, he was feeling a little better and ready to hit the sand...

Stella really wanted to body board but the waves just weren't big enough, so she had to content herself with hopping around in the surf...



This one cracks me up.  Watts's trunks are so long!

Cille has always liked the beach but was reluctant to get into the water until this trip.  I think these next pictures will show you how much that has changed...

This may be my favorite picture of the entire trip...sheer joy!




Mawmaw wasn't quite ready to hit the waves but the girls did not let that stop them from dragging her in...






Cille had tons of fun running into the surf and then running away from the crashing waves back onto the beach.  Wish I could be that easily entertained...
Cille's also got some major hops...



Watts wanted no part of the waves...

Stella calls this her "Giggles" bathing suit after a character on Teen Beach Movie.  What am I going to do when she's a teenager?  Good grief...
More fun in the sun to come!
