Cocoa Beach II

The vacation continues. And keeps getting better. Luke has settled into his normal schedule. The grandparents provide extra hands. And the sun has finally come out!

Before my Dad came down, Luke wanted nothing to do with the beach or the ocean. Took my Dad all of about 5 minutes to get Luke into the water, playing and laughing. All it took was for him to dig a hole.

And more vacation coffee. . . man, that stuff is like crack, it’s so good! Smile

The perfect time to run on the beach – right at low tide. My Dad, Scott and I tackled 4 miles on the beach during low tide and it was awesome.

Followed by more beach time and then dinner.

Margaritas –> vacation staple.

And we had really good drinks, great food (the grilled shrimp was ah-mazing) and nice conversation despite having a toddler with us. . . those extra hands are super helpful!!

Then, back to the condo for bedtime for Luke and Survivor with dessert for the adults!!

Hope your week is going awesome. . . it’s almost the weekend! Smile

And get ready for the start of Friday Favorites link up tomorrow –> I’d love if you’d join in!!

      You give me way too much credit!! Running at low tide is the best because the sand is packed down and super nice to run on!

  2. Ahhhhh this all sounds so amazing. I’m super impressed that the pictures you took while running turned out so nice!! 🙂 Glad to hear that Luke’s adjusted to the change–that’s when the vacation REALLY begins! Love the pic of you & Scott with the rays of sun. 🙂 Have fun!!!

  3. Yay for a nice day on the beach!!!! It looks so warm there, compared to here. Enjoy that warmth!
    Boys… Of course all it takes to get Luke in the water was digging a hole with grandpa! 🙂
