on the second day of our vacation, we rented a car and headed to the gulf. we visited a state park called honeymoon island. it was a great beach. it had beautiful white sand and very shallow waters for a long way out into the ocean. the water was so clear, you could see everything all around you, just the way i like it!!
jacob was not so sure he liked it at first. he was very apprehensive.
do you think they look alike at all?
he decided that digging in the sand with his shovel was ok though.
everyone else headed to the water to see what they could catch with their net.
can you see all the fish in the water that nobody could catch at all?
they are just too fast!!!
they all decided to dig in the sand with it and find shells.
olivia and amanda are inspecting their finds.
aaron and josiah decided to head into deeper water and dig up shells there.
what could this be that josiah dug up?
hanging out in the shallow water was enjoyable too!
jacob kept his safe distance on the sand. but he had so much fun!
then we decided it was time for jacob to fall in love with the water too.
it took a little bit of time, but he eventually realized that the water was pretty fun!
he realized that there was sand in the water too!
everyone had a blast!
then we took our sun-kissed bodies to dinner at the whispering canyon cafe in the wilderness lodge.
there was not much whispering going on there though!
