Our last week was spent in a condo so that we could all join in the fun and have direct access to the pool and beach. Aunt Sherry, Drake and Lainey joined Meme and Papa in their room for a few nights and Nana drove over every day to join in the fun.
Although we didn't really do any exploring beyond the confines of the pool and beach, the kids didn't seem to mind at all. The only arguments arose over whether we would be at the pool or at the beach. Our days fell into a rhythm though: start with a little pool time, move down to the beach for the late morning/lunch and then back to the pool before the afternoon thundershowers. Dinner, more swimming and/or an evening walk on the beach.
The next day, the girls decided they were done with splashing around in the tidal pools and shallow waves. They wanted to ride the waves on the boogie boards. And boy howdy, they did it with gusto! I was so proud! After only a few times of Len, Nana and me helping them catch the waves, they were ready to drag their boards out themselves to catch the waves.
