Vacation, the rest

After spending the afternoon shopping, we headed home for some down time. Mama talked to a worker at one of the shops who seemed to be very concerned about the weather. That scared Mama and they decided that we should go home and stay home. (We had plans to go out to dinner) Stacy decided that we'd take a chance and go out anyway. We went to West Beach Grill. It was recommended by the ladies at the pie place. Micah did not want to go at all, but our little family went anyway. Micah ended up Loving the place and gobbled his shrimp all up. Patton, also became a seafood lover on this trip. Now that he is one and can eat it..... I do not eat anything that has ever lived in the water. Don't like the smell, texture..... anything, but I understand that it's supposedly good for you, so by all means boys, eat that fish :-)
After dinner we headed home. We watched some football while Nut and her friend worked on a puzzle, then we crashed.
Apparently Ms. Martha had a difficult time sleeping during the night and watched some tv. She saw 3 tornado warnings in our area. It was BAD, and we slept right through it. I'm convinced though, if it's my time to go, I'm going. I'm ready! :-)
Sunday morning we woke up early, and got to enjoy some time on the beach.
Patton, who Loves water, wasn't a big fan of the ocean. Maybe it's because he had a cold, but he did like the beach. He played with sand, ate sand, and even tasted some jelly fish.
I thought it would be really fun to bury Micah. We dug a nice big hole. He DID NOT like it. Apparently he got really scared.... He cried, we took him out as fast as we could. I did get a quick pic.
After some playing at the beach and in the pool we decided to head to Lulu's for lunch. It was highly recommended by Daphne. Lulu (Lucy) is Jimmy Buffet's sister. Who would pass up the chance to go to her place? Not me! I ordered a cheeseburger in paradise and enjoyed it. They have a really cool set up, do check out their website.... I just had to get some pics after lunch.
After Lulu's we headed back for some more beach fun. It ended up being our last due to the weather. After we played, we headed out to a couple more shops before dinner. Nut had wanted to go to Lambert's, so that's where we went. Ms. Martha and Mama got there and graciously waited for an hour and a half for a table. We (Stacy) left Patton't paci at the house, so while they waited we ran home to make sure that we could have a happy baby on the ride home. We didn't eat until close to 8:00, but it was a fun atmosphere. Micah was So proud of his roll :-)
Although it was really really short, it was a wonderful vacation. We all had a great time and Micah keeps saying "I will never forget the ocean." We loved out trip and are more than thankful that we got to go!
