Wow...it has been a 2 week whirlwind here. It began in KY and ended in Panama City Beach for a week long vacation with the family. Nels, Gav, Nana, Papa, and myself took a mini-trip to Pigeon Forge, TN and visited The Great Smokey Mountains. It was so beautiful, I've been many times before, but that mountain line never ceases to amaze me, God really is an artist, the world His canvas. I loved seeing Nelson's expressions, this was a first time visit for him. He was in aw. Literally. Gavin fell asleep, but someday we'll take him there again, and he'll appreciate it, just as we did. A few pictures from our Tennessee trip >>>
We enjoyed a relaxing week at Nana and Papa's house, then it was on to Panama City Beach with Nana, Papa, Aunt Mary, Aunt Kelly, and Steve. Unfortunately, I didn't get that many pictures. A 16 month old just doesn't allow you the time to stop and take a nice photo. Especially a 16 month old that has NO FEAR of the Great BIG Ocean. He would run in to the ocean as quick as he could, get knocked down by waves, tossed around by waves, even went under a few times...but did this stop him from running in to that ocean every single day for a repeat...NO, it did not :). Gavin loved all that the beach had to offer. The waves, the salt water, a diaper full of sand, all of it...even a nice nap on the beach each day! We went out for dinner at night, out to shops, and even to dog races. How quickly that week passed by.
Short post, very few details, I know...but did I mention that I have a little cuddlebug that wants nothing more than EVERY SINGLE OUNCE of MY Attention??? Yep...I'm lovin it!
