The weather was kind of cloudy and rainy, but that didn't mess up our time at all.
We got to the condo on Friday night after some quick dinner, a Target run and a stop for an IceDream at the Chick-fil-A.
When our bellies were full of sugar, we hit the pool. This is the first time I think we've ever gone and not taken chairs and toys down to the beach with us. Not feeling like pack mules felt really weird.
She wrote her “nitials” of course… which usually come out looking like: “PAM” (confuses the W for a M) or “PAW” (she gets them out of order sometimes). :)
We got close to 3 good hours in before the rain came. It was close to nap time anyway, so we went up and got the girls laid down. Of course the sun came out after I'd already had my shower, but that's okay- I enjoyed a lazy afternoon with DW. He doesn't do "lazy" very well, so I take it when I can get it.
We very rarely go down to the main pier/boardwalk in Daytona. It's always so crowded and touristy that we always steer clear. Since we haven't been in YEARS (we've never even taken AB down there), we thought it would be fun to take the girls that afternoon.
We took them to a movie first. We wanted to see Brave, but it wasn't playing, so we saw Ice Age 4- Continental Drift. I’ve never seen any of the other ones, but it was pretty cute and AB loved getting to go to the movies again. (More than that she loved the big tub of popcorn and the drink that was half as tall as she is). Mamie did very good on her first trip to the movies! I only had to take her out for about 15 minutes.
Dinner was greatand AB had a fun time.

They had a balloon artist who made her a seahorse. The seahorse almost had a short lived life when we got in the truck later that evening and she told us that seahorse didn't like her Mommy. I have no idea where that one came from or why her seahorse didn't like me. I tried not to take it personal. :) She did redeem herself a little when she told the Seahorse that “it wasn’t very nice to not like mommy.” A few miles down the road, seahorse changed it’s mind and turns out it DID like Mommy. Whew – I was worried for a minute.
After dinner we had to take a little detour back to the Target. Turns out, Momma left her wallet at the store the night before. Thankfully Daddy didn't choke Momma about that and even more so, thank the Lord that there are still honest people in the world. :)
We joined them for a little while until it was Mamie's morning nap time.
It was such a fun little weekend away and we're so thankful that our Pappy & Nie-Nie are always so sweet to share their little piece of paradise with us.
