The ocean has blue and white in it.

Brad and I finally took our baby to the beach… she’s only been begging to go to the ocean for about three months now. And with watermelons and my new job and no rain (still no rain), you know… vacation gets complicated. But we made it.

The trip was not a letdown either. Blair loved the ocean, the sailboats, the beach, the bubbles, the shells, the birds, the sand, the pool – she had a blast!

She said, “the ocean has blue in it. The ocean has white in it too!”

Blair is all about some sunscreen!

Our condo was right on the beach. We loved it!

We build lots of sand castles. Blair did more destruction than construction!

She’s into getting “all you sugar.”

We watched some guys with parachutes motoring above the beach.

The whole time we were there, we went from beach to pool and back again.

Some kids caught some fish, and Blair enjoyed looking at and touching them.

Brad and I both tried to ride waves and decided we were out of shape! Katia brought us some nice ones though!

Just like the first time she came to the beach, Blair loved the birds!

We did some good eating, laughing, and playing! And she’s already asking to go back….

It was good to have the "much needed" vacation at the Beach! Great pictures Ashlee! Blair has got the happiest smile!

Looks like a blast! I can see my husband's grandmother's condo in the background of your pics. She passed away in 2007 and we sold the condo and haven't been back but seeing those pics brought back so many memories! I miss visiting Ormond so much! Miss his grandmother too! Glad y'all were able to get away and enjoy each other at the beach.
