The one with Fay

So, we haven't been to the beach all summer...for some reason we had more things to do! :) My parents have a timeshare in Panama City Beach for this week every year. Maddox, Izzy, and I headed out Saturday morning around 9:30 despite the fact that Tropical Storm Fay was on its way directly to the pan handle of Florida. This was against ALL of Izzy's common sense, but for some reason I won out. It rained a little on us going down, but not too bad. Once we got there however, they had the double red flags up...NO getting in the beach! Also, the pool was closed because of the weather. We didn't understand this at all!! It is an indoor pool, but nevertheless, it was closed. I think that I failed to mention that it stopped raining, and the sun was beginning to shine!! We went to my brother's hotel and swam in their pool! It didn't rain again on us until Monday morning...after Izzy left! I did get to have a big I told you so and the weekend turned out to be so much fun! Here are a few pictures that we took of Big Mad! He did enjoy the pool, but not so much the float.

Here is a picture of Maddox and Izzy with the crab float...I think the problem with it was that Izzy kept saying that Maddox had crabs! He didn't like that!

Here he is tuckered out from swimming...we put him in his tent and he slept until we woke him to go upstairs...this is despite the indoor pool with all the kids screaming!! :)

Here is one of him sleeping with PawPaw...I promise he did more than just sleep, but this was SO cute!
and one with MawMaw...asleep again! :)

This one was so sweet of his feet in the sand

and one in the water...even though we weren't suppossed
to be in it...we are such rule breakers!!!

We are planning on going back this weekend with Izzy's parents...we now get to battle Gustav!!!! Two weekends in a row...Two hurricanes in a row!! I'll let you know how it all goes!
Until next time...

I can't believe how it hardly rained there and it was like a monsoon here! Glad you guys had a blast. I'm even more glad that you got to say "I told you so!" to Izzy. That NEVER happens!

I hope y'all and Tony & Bobbie have a great time at the beach this weekend and that Gustav does not spoil things for you.

What is this...2 posts in a month! wow! :) Glad you had fun at the beach, it must be nice to be a stay at home mom!

Kristi said...

Yes, I think that YOUR common sense won out, because I would rather be braving a hurricane in a nice timeshare with a swimming pool than at home with no power... LOL!

Tony and Susan said...
