We headed out on Friday afternoon around 1pm. I hadn't been feeling well the past few days but I was determined to get this trip in. My mom's friend Lana (she went with us last year) didn't have enough of us last year so she decided to join us again this year. Can you tell we were a little excited!! Joanna on the other hand, doesn't know that her life is getting ready to be rocked - mommy leaving her!!
We drove quite a bit and stopped about 5 hours from Daytona. We arrived at our destination on Saturday at around 1pm and headed straight for the beach.
This was the first sunset we saw in Daytona...no words!!
Can I just say "what a different a year makes". Last year I was so nervous about my girls around the pool but this year, after many lessons, they don't even need belts! They are fish!!
We haven't spent as much time at the beach but we did get some quality beach time. They found baby jellyfish. Last year was a crab, this year is jellyfish babies. They were able to pick them up and play with them. The lifeguard told us they didn't sting so they were all over it.
So Lana decided she would paint the girls fingernails. Needless to say, the 6 nail polishes for $4.99 aren't the best quality so all of the polish came off the next day. So you guessed it, the girls made her paint them again.
My girls playing with a new friend. This year they really were very outgoing and comfortable with meeting new friends.
