Ponte Vedra Beach Baby

We just got back from vacation, but before things start to really get hectic around here with showers and birthdays, I wanted to share a few {okay, more than a few} photos of B's very first views of the ocean and our fabulous time with Auntie Roz and Uncle Nick in Ponte Vedra, FL...


We arrived in Ponte Vedra on Friday afternoon, after an overnight stay in Savannah {with a couple of hiccups along the way}... As soon as we unloaded all of our gear and had a mini picnic on the floor of the hotel room, we headed out to the beach-- which was conveniently located just outside our patio door! :)

B's first view of the ocean!

Of course, we couldn't wait very long... After we showed her the view out the door, all we heard was, "Go! Go! Go!" She is definitely our little adventurer!

 As you can tell, she was pretty impressed... We had so much fun!

 She got to feel the sand on her feet... And dip her little toes into the COLD water!!
But she loved every second of it... It was over 70 degrees and absolutely perfect!

 We are officially in love with Ponte Vedra Inn & Club!

Her favorite part was watching the "pup" chase after a ball into the waves.
 After showing B the ocean, we headed over to meet Auntie Roz and Uncle Nick at their place!!
B got to meet/hang out with some pretty amazing people... Cris, Kristin, and Miss Kitty (aka Momma K)!
We miss ALL of you guys so much!


Beach time came a little early on Saturday, because we were preparing to celebrate Roz and Baby Amelia at the shower in the afternoon! Obviously, given that we drove from 30 degree weather in Indiana to 75 degree weather in FL, we didn't have much in the way of appropriate beachwear for Miss B yet... So, we put on a pair of old pajamas and a sweater and set out for a little beach fun!!

 Our little adventurer wasn't feeling very adventurous this morning, however...
 She wasn't quite ready to claim her independence on the beach just yet.

 B definitely wanted to stick close to Mommy at first. She was being a little on the dramatic side {gasp, no idea where that comes from}, and didn't even want her feet to touch the sand... Eventually, she got really excited about the "pups" running around on the beach and decided that she wanted a closer look.

 After a few laps with Mom and Dad, we started seeing our brave girl come to the surface...

Now we're talkin'

 For those that followed my Twitter while we were gone, you may already know that B has discovered a new love of seashells... She is her father's daughter! :)

Hunting seashells with Daddy.

Later that afternoon, Mommy got to enjoy some quality time with the girls for Roz's shower. I didn't get to snap very many photos with my own camera, but let me just tell you that Momma Morrow was lookin' FABulous... She is every pregnant woman's dream when they look into the mirror!

Words cannot express how excited the Weinzapfels are to meet Miss Amelia!

We definitely had SO MUCH fun visiting with everyone... We can't wait until our next trip to FL!

Beach Day 3 and JAX Zoo photos coming soon!! :)
