Spring Break- Nights

Our routine at the beach is usually to start the day about 11 by the beach or pool until about 4, then we head up to shower to go out to eat and maybe another fun activity. This isnt what we have to do every day/night, it just seems to always happen that way.
The first night when we arrived, we bought a few groceries at Wal Mart. Mostly cereal, snacks, drinks and sandwiches. I have this thing where I always want Froot Loops with marshmallows at the beach. This night was freezing!! Like I had to change from flips flops to closed toe shoes, because my toes were about to fall off. The next night, was a teeny bit better, but still cold. We went to the Back Porch and only had a 10 min wait, whooo!

Mama's boy!

Shane told me my nails looked like a high school girls. I told him it was my JOB to stay on top of the latest trends! Doesnt he know??

Can you tell Caden was a little cold?

We took Caden to the arcade after dinner, where he spent about 30 min on games and about an hour picking out prizes!! That has to aggrivate other moms too....spending that time picking our prizes from dollar tree. I want to be like ok play your games then hop in, we will go pick out 5 things from dollar tree and be done!

 The next day my mom joined us and since she works at LuLu's we thought we should take her to Margaritaville. (LuLu's is Lucy Buffet's restaurant and Margaritaville is her brother, Jimmy Buffet's)

Weather got a little warmer each night, but we still had jackets!

We also had friends from our connect group join us for dinner. We didnt get any pics together, but it was fun spending time with them and their kids too!

I really wouldn't, but I thought it would be funny to get this because of it saying "Parrothead Family" Ha!
(Our last name is Parrott) 
Is that TMI for the internet?

The plane has a disco ball and salt shaker drop down while they play "Margaritaville"

And people on stilts make you ballons hats or swords

Ok, probably the funniest part of our trip was that Caden chose a set of mustaches as a prize at the arcade. He wore them around and kept a straight face the whole time. He is hilarious. People would be like, "hey dude, nice mustache". He would just look at them and nod his head like, "thanks, I know Im cool".

We had the most gorgeous view of the sunset from our table! I had to do a lot of cropping to get the cars and power poles out of the picture, but this is sooo pretty and not even instagrammed edited! Looks like a true paradise sunset!

We tried to get a pic with it in the back, but it didnt work out so we just had us!

Walking by Tootsies, more funny comments were made about his mustache and trying to get in the 21 and over place. Funny boy!

The next evening, we decided to skip getting ready and walked down the beach to Pineapple Willy's since it was nearby.
He was looking more like Panama Jack with that hat!

You can imagine how much fun the "spring breakers" were having talking to Caden about his stache.
(He has already been telling his class mustache jokes this week! His fave is "I mustache you a question, nevermind, Ill shave it for later!")

And the next morning was time to head home and prepare for Easter events celebrating our Risen Savior!!!
We had a great, no stress vaca and are all feeling refreshed!

Spring Break- Beach

Shane has to book his vaca days in November before the new year. When asking me when he should take off, I tried asking him where he wanted to go. I was a little pressured trying to plan a family vaca with such short notice and no clue where to go. Of course his response was that we didnt have to know WHERE just WHEN....well I mean, you kinda need to know both right? You wouldnt want to spend a beach vaca in Feb, or personally I wouldnt want the mountians in July. So yes, we needed an idea of where! Still unsure, he took Spring Break and a week in Sept. My mom lives close to Orange Beach, but we missed being able to stay on the beach and walk down whenever you wanted. So we chose to spend our Spring Break in Panama City. Sounds kinda funny though! 2 years ago before we were engaged we stayed in the same place so it was fun to bring back old memories. This SB as everyone knows was a alot colder than usual, and I was nervous about being bundled up inside for the week. But on the 2nd day we were able to relax on the beach and it warmed up more everyday. Of course the best weather being the day we left! Doesnt that always happen?

Poor thing kept his shirt on for a while on the beach!

Burying your parents feet is always fun!

He usually doesnt like the sand and asks to go to the pool after a few hours. Thankfully, since the pools werent in swimming temps, he was just as happy playing at the beach!

On this day, he was just as happy relaxing!

This pic made me think he needed a sibling to play with, but maybe later :)

We actually invited my mom to meet us there for a day/night as well. Shane was excited to spend 2 days golfing at the Hombre.

I still get Mama love!

My mom and Caden

Us, enjoying our much needed girl time!

It was so sweet to see this couple out sharing Gods love. They have been doing it on Spring Break beaches for more than 20 years!

We enjoyed our time away and it was of course hard to come back to a routine!

Next post, Ill share about our nights!
