1st Family Vaca // Finley's 1st Beach Trip // Day 2

Well, waking up to Day 2 was one for the history books! I had heard Finley "stirring" around, but she wasn't fussing, so I was giving myself some time to wake up a little more.. then all of a sudden she started crying so I got up. I didn't have my glasses on and I am blind without them, but the closer I got to her, I could see that something was all over her face. I thought for a second it was blood but then the smell hit me and when I got to her I could see that it was poop. 

Oh. My. Gosh.

Needless to say, for whatever reason, she had gotten into her diaper and was playing with her poop. She had it all over her blankets, her sock monkey, on her face, in her hair... just about everywhere.

I called for Shane to get up and me and Fin made our way to the shower, with Daddy gagging right behind us. He was gagging so hard I thought he was going to vomit. We got THAT mess all cleaned up and were ready to get our day started! 
What a WAKE UP CALL! Ha!

Happy Baby! While we were at the beach, Miss Independent wanted nothing cut up for her. She wanted to be able to hold the whole banana or whatever it was and bite off of it. The only problem with that is she filled her mouth full and could hardly chew!

Getting ready for the beach!

This outfit is what we were wearing when Finley started getting called a boy. Bless it. We only had one pink bathing suit and this and the other long sleeve is all I could find in her size. 

Finley's Aunt Tacie gifted this chair to her for her birthday and it was a hit! She loved sitting in it playing in the sand like a big girl.

She LOVED watching the birds!

Ahhhh.... take me back please.

We had taken Finley back up to the room for her lunch and nap. Bless her heart, even tho she slept ALL thru the night before, she fell asleep in the middle of eating. I have often wondered if and when that would ever happen and it did! 
Shane doesn't like to be out on the beach 24/7 like me, so he didn't mind me going out by myself while she napped. I was so thankful for that. While I was enjoying just sitting, I thought I had noticed something out of the corner of my eye. It wasn't playing tricks on me! 

After Finley's nap, her and Shane made their way back to the beach for a couple hours that afternoon. We borrowed a tent but it was way too heavy to carry down everyday and load up every afternoon. So Shane opted to rent the beach chairs and umbrella for the week. They picked them up everyday at 5, and if we were out there at time, we would pack up and go in. 

The first day we were out there and rented, there were no clouds in the sky for a sun break. So after Shane noticed Finley having so much fun, Daddy decided that he had to figure something out. He was going to buy our own umbrella but then just decided to rent. There was no space in our car to bring anything back.

I can't tell you how happy I was that Finley loved the beach so much!

Ready for dinner!! 

We decided on Bochamps and had a peaceful dinner on the deck overlooking the Destin Harbor. There were fans and that definitely helped with the heat and kept us comfortable. Fin fell asleep on the ride there and even napped almost thru appetizers.

Shane loves his oysters!

I always get a little worried how she's going to do in a restaurant but I have to brag on this little one. There were times that I felt like we had to entertain just a little bit, but she did so good! I think the server noticed that she had been back and forth from her high chair to me a good bit, so she brought her a Bochamps stuffed dog to try and help. So sweet of her. I don't remember her name but her parents had just moved to Blue Ridge Mountains.

We had such great food that I couldn't tell you which was my favorite. This is definitely a close first.
Our server suggested "The Original" Snapper Destin.. I had already been looking at that and when she suggested it, I ordered with no hesitation. It was SO delicious!! Shane even loved it. 
We both definitely recommend this restaurant if you are ever in the area!
