The Beach

We decided to spend the rest of our week in Florida at Madeira Beach and rented a condo right on the beach.

This view never gets old.  We were able to see dolphins every day from our balcony.
The condo was beautiful and we had such a great time swimming and playing in the sand.  The condo was within walking distance of John's Pass, so we went down there for dinners and ice cream a lot.  I got to see one of my other college friends and her husband for lunch one day and my "sister" Tabitha came for a day with her two kids.  
Morgan came with us on this vacation, which made it so much more relaxing with three kids.  She was a big help and Scott and I could enjoy some one on one time with each of the kids.  Thank you Morgan for coming with us.  
We saw some beautiful sunsets every night.
We spent a lot of time swimming in the pool and ocean and playing in the sand.  
Breakfast on the balcony
We went for a few runs on the beach and it was perfect.  We saw dolphins while running!
Evan has no fear of the water.....not that I expected anything different from him.  At least he is really good at wearing his floaties.  He is getting pretty good at swimming with those.  We are ready for his swim lessons in a few weeks.

This little girl was a good traveler and enjoyed her first beach experience

Ice cream time.  There was a place at John's Pass that had the best homemade waffle cones and ice cream.  I only had it once, but I am still dreaming about it.
Lots of family time during sunset
We just had perfect weather the entire week we were there.  No rain and mid 80's.
Hannah and Scott went on the Pirate Ship cruise

Donuts at John's Pass on our last morning
Look at this swim cap......I love it.  Nora's first time in the pool
We had a wonderful vacation and can't wait until next time.
