Naval air museum

After MeeMee and Pappy flew home we decided to go to the Naval Air Museum.
It was our first trip there.
And it was quite impressive.
There are helicopters and plane everywhere.
And lots of cockpits for the kids to climb in and play.
They like all the buttons and knobs and controls.
The flew several planes.
But the Blue Angel plane was their favorite.
Those cockpits are actually quite small.
But all three kids fit in.
We enjoyed walking around.
And exploring and learning quite a bit of history.
And even Benjamin was able to enjoy himself.  I think we will definitely go again the next time we are in Pensacola.

Today we went to the beach.
It was the first time we actually let Benjamin play in the sand.
At first he didn't know what to do with it.
But it didn't take long for him to realize that he loves the sand.
Grace made sand cones.
And Benjamin ate one.  Or several.
Then Faith and Grace tried burying Benjamin in the sand. 
And Benjamin just kept eating away.
Occasionally he would tense his entire body and squeal in delight.
I think he enjoyed the sand the most.
Although Grace really likes it, too.
From burying one another.
To climbing sand mountains.
We made sand angels.
And just rolled around in it.
Then Grace put on her bathing suit.
And braved the cold water.
It didn't take her long to dash back out.
That water was pretty cold.
And it was quite windy out.
So instead of swimming we tried flying our kite.
Faith is fascinated by it.
And wanted to do it all by herself.
Then a great big gust came along and ran away with it.  Fortunately, David is a very fast runner and was able to catch it.

We went to Santa Rosa Beach for a little family vacation.
Our condo was fabulous.
I love the beachy decor.  Especially the throw pillows.  They make the room look so cozy.
And the drapes and blue side table and clock.  I love painted furniture but I'm not quite sure how to bring it home...
I'm so in love with this chair.  I need it for my house.
Don't you adore the curtains around the tub?  I could totally do that at my house...
The girls loved the bunk room.  Each bed had its own tv and dvd player.
My sister has this exact picture in her bathroom in her house...
We enjoyed the sunset from Bud and Alley's
And then the girls snuggled up in their beds.
To watch a movie.
Before we all went to bed for the night.  Benjmain slept in the closet with the girls.

Hope's house

We went to visit my sister, Hope.
This was the first time Benjamin has been to her house.
Grace found Hope's cosmetic jewelry and dressed up.
So did Faith.
Then they rolled down the hill.
And Faith found a "lil tare just for me!."  (a little chair just for me.)
Then they wrestled with Seth.
Bounced around on the little trampoline.
And had a grand time.  We can't wait to visit her again.
