Destin ~ Day 6…

IMG_5454This morning, the girls decided to hang around our beach house to do some cleaning, laundry, and other fun things.  It is nice when you are on vacation for over a week, because you don’t have to rush to fit everything in, and you don’t feel bad if you just spend sometime hanging around the house…


Destin Day 6The girls went on a bike ride around our cute neighborhood…

IMG_5460Then, we sat on our front porch and did a fun craft…the girls made a LOBSTER…     Destin Day 61 First, the lobster body…

Destin Day 62Then, two lobster claws…

The girls loved the beach house…Mallory said her favorite part was the stairs…she played on them every day as much as she could…

“Ooooooo, Joanne wouldn’t like you playing on the furniture like that!”  Anytime anyone would make a mess or the girls would act crazy in the beach house, Mommy and Mrs. Erin would say, “Sorry Joanne,” or some other comment about her.  Joanne owns the house, so it was a silly joke.  Mallory asked a few times, “Who’s Joanne?”  After explaining it to her, she finally got it. Just the other day at home, I told Mallory we needed to run an errand to Joanne’s because Mommy need some scrapbook paper and paint.  She said, “Wow, Joanne’s sure is a long way away!”

After a busy day at the house, we went to dinner at THE CRAB TRAP…a restaurant right up the street and right on the beach…

THE SHORT CUT…definitely one of the girls’ favorite things about the beach.  We would always take the short cut coming home from the beach.  But, most days going to the beach, the Mommies would take the girls down the boardwalk, because it sure made for some cute pictures.  But D and the Daddies always took the short cut both ways.  So, tonight when we walked down with D, he took the girls through the short cut. Mallory was so cute, she would say, “Mommy, watch out for the stickers, you got to be careful.”  She would tell me exactly what her daddy would tell her.  She really thought she was teaching me the ins and outs of the shortcut, and she was so proud and excited to do so.

THE SHORT CUT was definitely her favorite way to go…
