Vacation - Day 7

Our Beach Boys

Friday morning I got up to take some pictures of the beach at sunrise. It was kinda a nice moment to be at the beach by yourself.

We decided to take it easy on Friday since we were going to have 10+ hours in the car on Saturday and at least 7 on Sunday. So we just went to the beach, swam at the pool, and explored the old forts of Ft Morgan. (it has some civil war history here that we didn't know about.)

These beach pictures are really from Tuesday but we went to the beach every day so I'm throwing them here.

Aiden was really funny about the water. The first day I don't think he got wet at all, maybe his feet. On Tuesday he was jumping over the waves as they came to the shore. But by Friday, he was scaring me half to death because he would try to be as far out as his brothers. He loved the water and would have stayed there all day.

Xavier and Damon boogie board most of the time we were at the beach. Damon was pretty similar to Aiden. He got in the water but wasn't in love on Monday. In fact he hated it and really just wanted to go to the pool. I don't know what caused the attitude adjustment but he too was scaring me on Friday. He was getting so far out I would have to keep getting on him to swim back in.
Xavier is our nature boy. If we would have given him a blanket, he would have made a bed in the sand. He were dragging him out of the water every day.
Grayson had mixed feelings. It didn't help that he still takes a morning nap so he would always be tired. Almost every day we would hold him while standing in the water and he would fall asleep. I guess the waves really know how to rock a bye a baby.
Ft Morgan was a beautiful beach with the softest sand I've ever felt. You would just sink into it.
