At the end of September we were blessed with the opportunity to meet my parents at the beach in Watersound, Florida. We stayed at the magnificent home of some friends and enjoyed a wonderful few days relaxing on the beach and, the kids favorite, in the hot tub.
If you’ve never been to Watersound, they have an 18 hole putt putt course called Puttering Park that is the neatest thing. It is PERFECT for little boys and a great way to pass time on cloudy days or when your son isn’t a big fan of the sand or water.
James took his golfing very seriously. The first time he went with Mom and Dad and made a sandy birdie (birdie from the bunker) and was so proud of himself. Also, after he would sink a putt he would take off his hat and hold it up like he was acknowledging the crowd. Absolutely precious!
James also found an aviation bear in the house and fell in love with him. I’m still looking for a similar one to surprise him with!
We did get down to the beach every day. By the end of our trip even James was getting at least his toes wet in the water. Hadley came down and napped in the beach tent and Charlotte really enjoyed bouncing around in the waves. Jason and I got to spend some two on one time with just Charlotte down at the beach one day that was wonderful. The downside to having three kids is that you rarely get to spend time with just one of them and our kids are so delightful that when we get a chance to focus on just them we really enjoy it.
The kids started asking when we were going back before we left and they haven’t stopped since we’ve been home. We loved Watersound and the laid back feel of the community! It had been two and a half years since we’d been to the beach as a family. We sure hope that it won’t be that long before our next trip back!
