The Beach Day 1

Travel-Not the most exciting part of a vacation but it has to happen. Ryan and I drove Sam to work this morning so we could pick him up and hit the road. We dropped him off around 7:15 and headed back to the house to finish packing the car. I got everything loaded and about 30 minutes to 1 hour later while I was doing a last load of laundry I saw that I had forgotten to put in the car Sam, Ryan and my wedding outfits. I laughed. I could just see us getting down here and everybody being dressed nice for the wedding and Sam, Ryan and I all have on bathing suits. Anyway, Ryan and I left about 10:30ish b/c we had to gas up the car and stop at Target to get a couple of things and get some lunch before we picked up Sam. We finally made it to pick him up a little before 12. I still could not believe it was finally here.

So, this was my first time ever traveling with a potty trained child and I really didn't know what to expect. Ryan still waits till almost the last minute to tell us he needs to go potty so I was a little worried. We get going and he is doing good. We are trying not to give him too much to drink so we don't have to make too terribly many stops. We made the first one in Canton so the side of an exit ramp. I hope it is not illegal but we just let him rip it on the side of the interstate. YES, I took a picture! I can't wait till he starts dating and bust this out!

So, after this we hit the road again and ended up stopping 3 more times. Which in my opinion was not too bad. We finally made it here around 4:15ish which wasn't bad either. We got checked in and hit the beach. We didn't stay too long b/c we were all hungry and tired. After the beach we checked out the swimming pool and went to change to go eat. We went to one of my favorite places when I was a teen and used to play on a traveling softball team...Fazzoles! I was so excited b/c I had not been to one of these in years BUT I was a little disappointed. It was not as good as I remembered but it was food and we were all hungry. After that we went to Wal-mart (I know I go on vacation and just to go to Wal-mart) but Sam needed a new pair of crocs b/c he's broke as soon as we got here and we needed a beach chair b/c we could not find ours either. We left Wally World and we back to the hotel and walked across the street to a little ice cream shop. We all got a cone and some how I ended up with Ryan half melted mushy cone of soft serve chocolate while he ate my waffle cone of strawberry. I think I got the robbed! But oh well. We went back up to our room and cleaned Ryan b/c he had ice cream everywhere and needless to say we sat down and it was over! We were ALL in bed a little after 8! I think we were tired! We are just happy to be here! All and all it was a good day!
